With her husband Ken, she loved to sail, and they were members of the Watkins Glen Yacht Club. They had several different boats on Seneca Lake over the years with each new boat being bigger than the previous one. Theresa and Ken would also take the boats to the canal at the top of Seneca Lake, and through the locks to travel on different bodies of water. She enjoyed attending her grandchildren’s sporting events and other activities. Private services were held.
