Theresa graduated from Anna High School in 1969. Theresa worked at Anna Schools for 30 plus years and served as the head cook. She also was a farmer, a mother and a good friend.
In addition to all of Theresa’s work, she enjoyed going boating at the Ohio River, playing cards but especially bid euchre, watching the grandchildren play sports and show their animals at the Shelby County Fair. She really enjoyed cooking for family events and taking meals out to the fields during planting and harvesting season, but most of all she enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren, family and friends. She was loved by many and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
