She was an unfailingly positive person, who was always supportive of her sons, family, and many friends. Her pride in her sons and two grandchildren, and two great grandsons was always evident. 

An avid lover of country and Cajun music, she loved dancing weekly for much of her life. Sharing good food and cooking were also important to her. 

Theresa will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

She is survived by her sons, Lonnie Thibodeaux (Janie) and Alfred "Al" Thibodeaux (Vickie); grandchildren, Joshua Thibodeaux (Lisa) and Ariel Thibodeaux; great-grandchildren, Logan Thibodeaux and Jackson Thibodeaux; brother, Melvin Dore'; sister, Marie Melancon.
