She moved to Los Alamos in 1953 and worked at the Los Alamos National Laboratory, taking time off to raise her three children.

Teresa liked to travel and visited places throughout the US, Canada and Europe. She loved to cook for family and friends. Her tortillas and tamales were the best around. She also loved to eat ice cream and watch classic movies especially musicals. Her favorite pastime was playing video poker, mostly at Cities of Gold Casino, where she had many friends. She was lucky at the casino, which some attribute to her Halloween birthday. She enjoyed monthly family luncheons, a ritual that started several years ago. She valued her independence and took pleasure in taking care of her home. Her pride and joy was her only grandchild, Arianna, whom she called her "Little Sweetheart." In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to be made to the Los Alamos Medical Center Hospital Auxiliary.
