She moved her family from New Mexico to Denver, CO in 1996. Thereasa is survived by her three children: Judith, Jacob and Jolene Quintana of Denver, CO. She is also survived by five grandchildren.
Thereasa was a devoted mother and grandmother who loved to spend her time with her grandkids every moment she had. She taught her children and grandkids the beauty of life and the devotion of family. Thereasa was immensely proud of all her children's achievements and leaves nothing behind but beautiful memories.
Thereasa had a fiery personality and was very vocal about her opinions. Often saying I'll say what I want I don't care who hears. She was very passionate about her children and grandkids, she protected them fiercely while they were growing up. Even if that means yelling at a couple teachers who has bad things to say about her kids. When things didn't go her way she had her favorite saying "oh my gosh!" She loved to be the life of the party but always wanted to be around her kids so she would join in on concerts and trips to the mountains. When she was relaxing at home she loved to watch lifetime and soap operas but in her free time she enjoyed being with her grandkids the most.
