I was so sorry very sorry for your loss. Theresa was a friend of my mother, Mary Jane. They were both "9 O'Clockers" and when a stroke rendered my mom unable to drive, Theresa, along with several others, took turns driving her to daily Mass. I will remember her as loving, kind, compassionate, generous and faithful. I feel fortunate to have known her. May your memories sustain you and may God comfort you as you mourn the loss of your parents/grandparents.

Theresa Carlson was a 2nd mom to me. She knew me and loved me my whole life. Theresa was a warm, generous, kind, loving woman always ready to cook a good meal, send cards and gifts and share in conversation. Theresa remembered my birthday for 55 years! She told my mom she was sorry she didn't get a card off for my birthday 2 weeks ago! Theresa was an incredible role model as a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She came to visit us once in Atlanta and brought a framed picture that hangs in our bathroom. She said that whenever you visit someone the first time you always bring a gift! I remember clearly when I had my tonsils out when I was 12 years old, Theresa drove the 1 1/2 hours to our house to visit me. I couldn't talk but it sure was nice for her to visit! My mom, Margie Bowyer, recalls that Theresa rushed up to our house when she learned that my brother, Brian, passed away. She always was there for her friends and family. Theresa and Dave have been incredible friends of my parents for almost 60 years. They shared ownership in a house at Ocean City, renting it out a lot of the time but staying there together quite a bit. We all will miss Theresa so much. I consider Theresa an angel. She touched so many lives. I believe she is in heaven now with her husband, Dave, her son, Kris, my brother, Brian and our friend, Al Roberts - and what a reunion it must be! Love you always, Theresa!

I'll never forget when i was pregnant with my first son Jack, mom said 'Can i be called Nana when Jack is born'. Kris and I chuckled and said what ever you want to be called is fine w us. She was so happy to be a Nana and was so good at it too!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I loved growing up having the Carlsons as neighbors. Mrs. Carlson's smile, their two dogs (Spooky and Candy, I think...?), trick-or-treating for popcorn balls on Halloween, the warmth she exuded each time (until recently!) that I ran into her at St. Benedict's...all wonderful memories. God speed to a wonderfully giving woman, and my condolences to Vanessa, Lori, and her grandchildren. Sincerely, Jenny (Catalano) Viola

All of her children gave Mom & Dad a ' Surprise 40th Anniversary Party' in 1994. I'll never forget that day when they came home there was so much love for them and the surprises kept continuing. Moms sisters and brothers came from Ill and Fl, she was so emotionally happy to see everyone. They were both loved very much amd will be greatly missed. Many of their friends that they haven't seen in a very long time came to the party..

Hey mom, I'll never forget the image of you sitting on the couch, watching tv, with poochie's head in your hand...and you telling me you couldn't get up because you didn't want to disturb him!! How much you came to love that cat mom, you who didn't like cats!! You were such a big softie! You spoiled him rotten and missed him more than me when he died. but that's who you were mom, making everyone and even every creature feel loved and welcome in your home. Just like all the times you made meatloaf for me to take back to the city, or ball cake on holidays or homemade donuts and cookies....the list is endless. Food was love to you, and no one showed more loving to all her family and friends than you did. I remember all those Godmother subs for Kris, and all the eggplant parm for Vanessa and all the grape jelly you made from grapes in the backyard and then shared with neighbors and friends....how I wish I had some of those jars now. Just like how you ruined me for red sauce, since it never tastes like yours, which you made from scratch with tomatoes you had canned yourself....what treasures you gave us, mom and what a childhood!I'll never forget the unconditional love and support you've given me thru all my troubles, and am glad you lived to see me walk this walk. I love you more than I can ever say, but you knew that and I was blessed to be able to spend some time with you and show you. Now that you've joined dad and Kris I know that you are at peace and I'll carry you in my heart forever. You were the best mom, and I was blessed to have you.

Dearest Mom, How I miss you already. You were the best and we had the best life with you. I will never forget making cookies at Christmas and delivering them to the neighbors. Making paper Valentines for our school mates that you taught us to do. Going to Ocean City every summer and forging lasting memories. Watching you and Dad and the Addis's play bridge, hearing Frank Sinatra in the background while you thought we were sleeping. Teaching us to sew. In later years I remember coming home every weekend from college and you would have homemade donuts and big breakfasts waiting. Remember the Christmas breakfasts at 77 when the neighborhood stopped by after church and those progressive dinners that you and your friends had going house to house we couldn't wait to eat the leftovers. You were always there for us and helped us whenever asked whether it was babysitting our kids or making a meal you never complained and were happy to be involved. I love you Mom and know you and Dad and Kris are happy together again. Love you Vanessa

I don't think there is a time that I ever visited my grandmother without feeling sick from eating. She always have strawberries and powdered sugar on the dining room table every time we came. I can even remember sneaking into her room just to steal those mints she always kept. She always looked after us kids and made sure we were okay. She did all she could and then some for us even if we could never repay her back. She was a care giver, a wife, but she was my grandmother. She will always have a special place in my heart and i am sure she is smiling ear to ear ever since she got to see Pop Pop and Dad. I love you NaNa. I just wish i was able to see you and pop pop one last time...
