I remember this sweet lady as one of my mom's closest friends and neighbors growing up. Her daugher Nancy was our babysitter. Rest in peace sweet Therese.

May the words at Isaiah 25:8 be of comfort to the friends and family of Therese, where it says "He (God) will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces."

Therese was a warm and wonderful woman who was very kind to my father Thomas Flanagan in his last days, coming to see him even when he didn't remember who she was. It meant the world to me and I will always remember her kindness. I know you will miss her and she and you will be in my prayers Julie(Flanagan) Wilcox

Your mom would go to church every morning. My girl and I would be waiting for the bus. She would always wave and if she had time, would stop to ask how everyone was. She will always be fondly remembered.
