Teresa was born on July 26, 1955 in Philadelphia, PA and moved to Gloucester City, NJ at the age of 8. She graduated from Gloucester City Jr. / Sr. High School in 1974 and remained a Gloucester City resident her entire life. She would be the first to tell you how proud she was to be from Gloucester City ! Terry’s most important thing in this world to her were her grandchildren! Growing up in Gloucester City, she had a group of girlfriends that she went to school with and were very close. These cherished friends who shared life’s journey with were Sue, Deane H., Debbie, Patty, Diane T. and this list could go on forever. Everyone knew Terry for her contagious laugh and big smile and the way she told it like it was! If she wasn’t with her grandchildren, she and Ed were taking road trips to Lancaster, PA, ghost haunting in graveyards or she was dragging him to Walmart, Sam’s Club and every other store in the area. She drove Ed crazy but never said a word.
Terry worked for the Camden County Sheriff’s Department. She worked at Delmonte Produce at Holt Logistics until she couldn’t work anymore from her diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. Raymond and Tracy had many friends that became our mom’s kids also. So many to list but they all had a special place in her heart.
