I worked with Theresa starting in 1963 when Paul Bouillon bought the Grocery Store. She handled the cash register and I bagged the groceries and took them to the customers car. We had a ball working together and Theresa had a sneaky, wry sense of humor. My Dad would always try to have a new joke to tell her when he went to the store. Whenever I saw her over the last 50 years she would tell me one of Dad's jokes. Paul and his family, Louie, Pete, Diane and I were like our own little family and we truly had fun. I never saw her get angry and she was absolutely a wonderful person.
My sympathy to her family.
