Theresa resided in Manchester since 2003, previously residing in Jersey City and Bayonne, New Jersey. Born in Bayonne, she was the daughter of Joseph and Anna Koziol and sister to Sophie Reszutek (pre-deceased) and Matthew Koziol (pre-deceased).

After living in Bayonne for over fifty years, retired life began as an active member of the Renaissance retirement community in Manchester. Here she would enjoy her time participating in various recreational and club activities while connecting with friends often by hosting weekly mahjong games. Theresa also enjoyed reading, visits to the beach, traveling and spending considerable time with her six grandchildren who she adored. She was a parishioner of St. John's Roman Catholic Church in Lakehurst, New Jersey.
