Theresa Esther Skubik Obituary
Theresa was born June 4, 1925 in Sunrise, Wyoming and moved to Sugarite, New Mexico at the age of two. She lived there until she was sixteen and then her family moved to San Pedro, CA. She graduated from San Pedro High School in 1942, met and married and loved the same man, Martin Skubik, until he passed away in 1975. She passed away October 16, 2010 in Torrance, CA. Theresa is survived by daughter, Marsha Mix of Lake Arrowhead, Sheryle Bird of Huntington Beach, Carolyn Daddario of San Pedro; and sons, Martin Skubik, Jr., Art Skubik and Jerry Skubik of San Pedro. Her example of compassion and sacrifice is an inspiration to family and friends. "Always taking care of others," many would say about the life of Theresa Skubik. Not too many people have the heart the size of hers, well, with the exception of Mother Theresa. Her six children all agree that her influence had been totally first-rate. We have benefited from her strong example, endurance and honesty. The meals she prepared daily, doctor appointments and the planned birthday parties that were always appreciated and will never be forgotten. We would like to thank her for not only being a great mother, but a kind, loving person who never criticized, but used praise instead. Ask any one of her adoring grandchildren, Tava, Philip, Kristin and Caroline or great-grandchildren, Hudson and Reece. As a mother, she had to fill many shoes such as nurse, teacher, cook, taxi driver, hostess, adviser, encourager and listener. She had filled out hearts with so much happiness by making the world a brighter place to live in. They don't make mother's like her anymore and we hope she can understand how proud we will always be to have a special mother who means so much to us. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Tuesday, October 26, 2010 at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in San Pedro. Please sign the guestbook at www.dailybreeze.com/obits.
