Theresa was a wonderful homemaker, wife, mother and grandmother. Always a force with which to be reckoned, she so loved her family and taught and practiced the importance of family. She lived life to the fullest, 98 years, filled with beautiful memories and lots of love.
Theresa was an excellent seamstress and stitched love into many pieces for her family, from First Holy Communion gowns, holiday dresses for her granddaughters to drapery, slipcovers, curtains and bedspreads. She loved to dance, travel and play cards and everyone felt she made the best wedding soup ever. Her favorite thing to do however, was to be with her family.
She will be remembered by her daughter, Georgiann Ballard and her son-in-law, Ray; her son, Richard Schiraldi and daughter-in-law, Susan; grandchildren, Teal Palmer (Brian)of Poland, Ryan Galati (Russ) of Boardman, Gabriella Schiraldi of Stamford, Connecticut and John Schiraldi of Charlotte, North Carolina; great-grandchildren, Tucker and Hudson Palmer and her sister, Francie Pompeo (Sam).

The family has already held a private Mass of Christian Burial at Saint Michael’s Church.
