Theresa was born in Fitchburg on February 26, 1957, a daughter of the late Allen and Evelyn M. (Drury) St. Peter. She graduated from the Southern Careers Institute in 2017 with a certificate in Medical Billing and Coding. Theresa was a valued member of the medical billing teams of Burbank Hospital, Leominster Hospital and University Health Systems in San Antonio, TX. Prior to beginning her career in medical billing, Theresa spent many years in service to the Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program, travelling throughout communities in Fitchburg, teaching critical nutrition skills to low income families. She was dearly loved by anyone that had the opportunity to get to know her. With a ready smile and a deep empathy, Theresa could sense your emotional needs whether family, friend, or stranger, and a stranger she never met. Just a friend she hadn't met yet.
