Twice Theresa followed her lifelong dream and moved to Hawaii, but missed being near her family and moved back to Massena, having been gone a total of seven months. Theresa loved being with her family and the friends she treated as family. She loved playing Bingo and laughing with her Bingo friends, listening to music and riding motorcycles. She was a very positive and friendly person who would go without if it meant helping someone else. She loved going to the kids' basketball games. When she couldn't go, she would watch sports on the news to see the recorded games and scores. She enjoyed watching WWE, especially her favorite wrestler, Roman Reigns. Theresa is survived by her children, Tammy Roshia, John Paul Roshia, Jimmy Roshia, Roberta Roshia, and April Lashua, her step-children, Rex and Cindy Lashua, Elwyn Lashua, Jr., and Sabrina and Mike Haney, sister, Helen and Glen McDermick, and brothers, John and Geraldine Castell and Robert "Reggie" Castell.
