She earned her State of Ohio nursing certificate in 1958. She was a Registered Nurse and had been a Patient Care Coordinator for Community Hospice Care of Seneca County, where she was a hospice angel to many. She was honored to be designated the American Cancer Society Nurse of Hope for 1985 - 1986.

Theresa was a regular Red Cross Blood Drive RN. She was often present on election nights as a Poll Worker for the Seneca County Election Board, and she was a Meals on Wheels volunteer.

Theresa married Thomas Richard Reiter, the father of her children, November 25, 1954 at St. Wendelin Church, and he died August 8, 1986. Theresa found love a second time and married Dale B. Heilman November 30, 1996. He passed August 28, 2017.
