Theresa was born and raised in Calgary, graduating from Forest Lawn High School. She was a dedicated and loving mother, who loved making crafts and grew to create beautiful greeting cards. For over 20 years she volunteered at schools helping children learn to read, they called her Grandma Theresa. She had a love of travel and enjoyed many years attending the Iowa State Fair, where she helped Annette & Tim in their food booth. She also enjoyed her summers in Phoenix. Having Alzheimer’s progress for nearly a decade, Theresa became a resident of Age Care Seton in 2018, where she was a “stealth shopper” and helped out as a meticulous linens folder. We will miss her dearly.
