Therese was born in Leon Guanajuato, Mexico. She obtained her nursing education in Mexico where she was honored with the Presidential Nurse of the Year award.

After 42 years as a surgical nurse she retired and moved to Lynden.
Therese was an avid gardener and adored Pierre her companion miniature Poodle. She made friends wherever she went. And if you knew her, you were probably added to her nightly prayer list.
