Teresa fervently loved her family and friends. She loved to cook, garden when she was able, and vacation with her husband Gordon. She also became an avid bird watcher from her back porch. She always made sure the birds had food and a place to bathe for her enjoyment. Teresa was a collector of butterflies, humming birds, cardinals and clowns, having many figurines of each.

At the age of 16, she met and married William Caldwell of Cement, Oklahoma and together they built a home and a family for 25 years. Together they had two children, Andreia Rose and Bradley Leon. During this time she was a stay at home wife and mother while babysitting at times.
