I knew Theresa and her family through Hamilton Heights. She was a wonderful Mother and volunteer for the swim team.

I always admired my big sister Theresa. She and Paul were an inspiration to me as I grew up and they supported me in many ways. Theresa really knew how to live life. She was so down to earth and outgoing and funny and loved to talk and tell stories and have a good time. I am sure she is up in heaven now regaling her friends and relatives such as Joe Vogel, Eddie Ryan, Dad, Jack, Jim, etc., and making the memories seem three times as funny as they ever were the first time.

My sister Theresa was very smart, witty, and fun to be around, and she was a great cook. No one loved her family more than she did. I cherish the memories, and I will miss her dearly.

Julie and family,
I am so very sorry to learn of your loss. Your mom was simply amazing. I knew her more than 35 years... and all I ever saw was the immense love she had for her children. I hope you find comfort in that love and all those wonderful memories.

Vince and family, You are so lucky to have such a special loving Mother to grow up with. She will be your angel from now on and be smiling upon you, Becky, and Jake. You will continue to make her proud every single day. It was an honor to say I knew Theresa Bates!!

Katherine, Jimmy, and I are saddened for your loss. We hope that you can find comfort from one another. We read that you preferred a donation to Hospice. I sent a donation to Hospice in memory of Theresa.

Our family wishes to express our condolences and let you know you are in our thoughts and prayers. Although, we did not know Theresa personally, our family always looked forward to receiving our holiday "THE WORLD'S BEST" pecan pie from her. Theresa should be proud that she raised a fine son in Paul and we always felt him to be a part of our family also.

Even though we've only known Theresa for the last six or so years what a delightful influence she made on our lives and that of our family. We will miss her and all the good times we shared together.
