When one thinks about Theresa, her “glamorous” appearance always comes to mind! Her hair and makeup were always perfect as well as her winning smile! Theresa had a vibrant personality and a sense of humor that made people want to be around her. She could always make us laugh. She was a sincere friend and a devoted daughter. Theresa’s “hobby” was the telephone! She always kept in touch with her family and many friends. “Tita”, as she was affectionately known, will be missed by all who knew her. May the Lord hold her in the palm of His hand.
Theresa is survived by her beloved family, two sons and a daughter-in-law, Joseph Bello of NC and David and Joy Bello of CA; three cherished grandchildren, Adrian Bello, Anthony Bello and Isabel Bello; a brother and sister-in-law, Adrian and Marie Lanzi of Rome; several aunts, uncles and cousins.
