Theresa was born April 18 1958 to Joe and Lupe Martinez in Las Vegas, NM. She graduated high school in Raton NM in 1977. On August 16 1997 she married the love of her life, her soul mate, Thaddeus King. They shared a life love, laughter, patience, and kindness. Everything they did, they did together, the kind of love that most dream of. In 2015 Theresa and Ted moved to Texas where they planted their roots.
Theresa was full of life and love for her family. Her children and grandchildren were her joy and happiness. She loved chasing her youngest granddaughter (Cayleigh) around, playing and laughing. They danced together, sang together, played together, and had an unbreakable bond. Best friends in the truest sense. She enjoyed spending time with her family whenever she had the chance. She never passed up an opportunity to brag about what a good man her son (Chris) is or how beautiful her daughter (Alethea) is. She never turned down a meal cooked by Chris, she loved the way he could grill a steak or a hamburger. In earlier years, Theresa enjoyed making candy in her kitchen with her kids and grandkids. She was 100% devoted to her family. She loved sharing old family photos and talking about her childhood, her parents and her siblings. Her siblings were her closest friends growing up.
