Theresa loved to watch television especially soap operas. The Young and the Restless and The Bold and the Beautiful were her favorites.

Theresa also enjoyed fishing with her family, long car rides and simply being outdoors. Other hobbies included coloring and baking cookies. Time spent with her friends or her cats, David and Tasha, was always considered special by Theresa.
