Teresa was employed as Deli Manager for many years at Foodtown and after retirement she worked at Interfaith Neighbors in the Meals on Wheels Program.

She and her family enjoyed sitting around the table listening to old stories and laughing. Ranny, as she was known to her grandchildren, told the monkey joke like no other. Always up for an adventure, Teresa traveled extensively. Paris was her favorite city of all. She loved the theater, art, and music. She looked forward to the spring time so she could watch baseball, she was an avid Mets fan. On weekends she could be seen scouring the area for treasures at her beloved yard sales.
