Teresa worked in the agricultural industry for over 60 years. She was a well-respected farm labor contractor for many agricultural farms in the Northern California area. She was a devout Catholic who attended St. Anthony’s Catholic Church of Manteca. A dedicated mother and grandmother, Teresa constantly prayed for her family’s well-being. She possessed admirable qualities including honesty, integrity and an extremely hard work ethic. She was a wonderful cook and enjoyed seeing her family well-fed with smiles on their faces.
