Mac Quarrie, Theresa E. Born 08/16/1925 in South Bridge, Mass. Known to everyone as ''Terrie''. With her charming personality and spotless attire. She was loved by all and will be missed by many. As a young girl, Terrie loved the sport of bowling, roller skating and was excellent at jitter bug dancing of the 1940''s to the tune of the ''Big Bands'', Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey and Harry James, etc. Terrie met her future husband to be ''Charlie'' in 1940, while at the town ''Roller Skating Rink''. Through this acquaintance a three year relationship developed and on Dec. 25, 1944. while Charlie was stationed at ''Chatam Field'', Georgia in the Army Air Corp., his proposal for marriage via ''air mail'' was accepted and Terrie traveled by train to Georgia, and on 12/25/44 Terrie and Charlie tied the knot in a quaint ''Little Base Chapel''. Attended by many of the GI''s, Terrie was attired in pink her favorite color and yellow roses. A beautiful bride then as today 60 years later. Throughout the 60 years of marriage Terrie brought into this world two wonderful and loving son's, Richard and Michael. Terrie also worked as one of the best waitresses an employer could find. Serving her customers with that charming personality and expert service for some 35 years, 22 of those years with the same employer. Terrie lived most of her adult life (55 years) in Ca; with husband Charlie and son Michael. Son (Richard living in Reno, Nv.) Traveling, bingo, horse racing and the trips to Reno and Las Vegas, Nevada in quest of the big ''Jack Pot'', she enjoyed. Terrie retired from her waitress work in 1975, a few months later opened an ''Antique and Collectable'' business under her chosen name of Yesterday's Treasures and became very successful for 27 years with the addition of ''Mac's Old Time Radios and Radio Museum'' in Lawndale, Ca. She loved people and people loved her. She will be missed immensely by her husband Charlie, sons Richard and Michael and 2 grandchildren, Rhonda and Ricky, 7 Great grand children and many nieces, nephews, and a brother Gerard, and many friends. May she Rest in Peace, after battling for 5 years the health adversities that many have and will face. But throughout it all a 60 year marriage to the sweetest and most caring wife a husband could have will live with me forever, and as we often said I love you honey BIG, BIG Husband Charlie ( known as Mac) A service celebrating Theresa's life will be held at McCormick's Mortuary Chapel in Hawthorne on Wednesday Nov. 17th, 2004 at 4:30 P.M.

I am sorry I did not tell you more often how much I loved you. Now it\’s to late. Love you Mom. Love Richard.
I love Aunt Terry and will miss her, we may have been far away but in our hearts felt close. I have to say the funnest thing I remember about her she would tell everyone she did not own a stove, and when my mother went to see her the first thing she looked for was to see if she had a stove in her house. Charlie our prays are with you.
Uncle Charlie and family, our condolences are with you at this sorrowful time. Aunt Theresa was a great lady, and will be missed by all. We send you our love. You are all in our prayers.
Our condolences to all of you, Uncle Charlie, Mike and Richard and family. Wish we were closer to give you all big hugs but know that you are in our thoughts and prayers. We thank you Uncle Charlie, for giving Aunt Teresa such loving care always, but most especially in her weakest years. She so loved you all. My fondest memory of Aunt Terri was when she was here for Pepere Chenier before he died. We would be called into the hospital in the middle of the night and she had to go without her eyebrows… she always made us laugh. She truely had a gift of making everyone feel happy. I will always remember your laughter and your presence to turn a dark day into sunshine.
Uncle Charlie, Richard and Mike, My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time of great sadness . I especially remember coming to see Aunt Teresa and going with her to play bingo. She so loved it . And also one time that i love to recall is how she played the slot machines wearing leather gloves. Her laughter made you laugh and her smile was so beautiful. We will miss her. All my love Doris
Dear Charlie, I will be with you in spirit as you reflect on, and honour Teresa\’s life.I will remember, as I think about how some sixty years ago next month you took your marriage vows, and how devoted you were to each other right until Teresa\’a time to go to her eternal rest. “In Sickness and In Health”…No better exemplified as vows fulfilled, than your lives. “God Bless” you,and your family. With Love, Your sister Margaret
To Uncle Charlie, Michael, and Richard, We are so sorry to hear of Aunt Terrie\’s passing. She was a funny, strong, spirited woman. We are sure she is on the other side with Sandy, now, healthy and watching over you. You will see her again. Love, Heidi, Greg & Penny-Dog
My deepest sympathies go out to you. I will miss Aunt Theresa will all my heart. I will always remember the good times we had when I was living out there. She always had a smile and her laughter was infectious. She made people happy just being with her. She will be in my heart forever. I love you all Dorothy
Dear Uncle Charlie, My deepest sympathy to you, Richard, Michael and family. Even though we didn\’t get to see each other often, I have very fond memories of the good times we shared when we were together. Aunt Theresa was a fantastic lady who loved and enjoyed life to its fullest. She had a contagious laugh that would be felt by everyone around her. She surely will be missed.
