Theodora was a kind, loving and devoted mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Her family meant the world to her. She enjoyed all family events and get-togethers, her daily phone calls with her sister Palmire and especially going to bingos. She had great Faith, in her daily prayers to God, Mary, St. Anne and all the Saints in Heaven, she named them all. We always knew when we needed help in any area, mom was only a prayer away. Her strength, courage, and belief was a blessing to all of us. We will forever miss her stories, her laughter but most of all the love she had for her family.
