Theresa used her education for a lifetime of teaching in the classroom, as a CCD instructor, as a private piano teacher, and organ teacher. Her love of Catholicism and music led to a long career of 58 years as an organist. She played weekly masses, weddings, and funerals at Our Lady of the Rosary and Saint Mary’s Parishes in Spencer, Saint John the Baptist Parish in East Brookfield, Saint Ann’s Church in North Oxford, Saint Roch Parish in Oxford, Our Lady of Loretto Church in Worcester, Saint Mary Church in Brookfield, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart in West Brookfield, Saint Joseph’s Parish in North Brookfield, Our Lady of the Assumption Parish in Millbury, and Saint James Parish in South Grafton, where she finished her career. Being in the Lord’s house was only part of her religious devotion. Weekly mass was easily attained, but she consistently went above and beyond by attending annual Novena’s to Saint Jude, utilizing "Word Among Us"and "Magnificant" for daily readings together with daily spiritual journaling and by rolling her blessed rosary beads for all the souls who crossed her path on this earth, including the many she met at Rustic Laundromat while folding clothes. After she stopped driving and right up to her passing, Theresa watched daily masses on the TV Ministry channel.
