Theresa was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother; her life revolved around her family. She loved to cook and clean and make home always a wonderful place to come back to. She especially loved our family gatherings.

She was predeceased by her husband, Arthur Gadway; her brother, Benjamin Nephew; and her sister, Frances McNeil.

A special thanks to our Aunt Mary Gadway for being with our mother throughout the summer and fall, giving her daily care, taking her to doctor’s appointments; just for being there when we could not be.
