Theresa A. Jessick, 80, of Horseheads.
She was born Dec. 28, 1931, in Elmira, daughter to the late Carl and Leora (Sampson) Eddy, and passed away Sept. 19, 2012.
She was predeceased by her husband of 57 years, Thomas L. Jessick in 2008.
She is survived by her son, Thomas M. Jessick of Rochester; daughter and son-in-law, Debra M. and Stephen Cembrinski of Cooperstown; grandchildren, Stephen and Ryan Cembrinski, Marissa, Travis and Devon Jessick; sister, Shirley Cardone of Elmira; sister-in-law, Margaret (Lisi) Eddy of Elmira, and brother-in-law, Paul Jessick of Elmira.
Theresa had been employed as an aide to spasmodic children at Center Street School in Horseheads and had served as secretary for the Commissioner of Jurors in Elmira.
Theresa spent her childhood years in Elmira. While attending school in Wellsburg, she was a cheerleader and loved doing cartwheels. It was during this time that she also became skilled at roller-skating and playing piano which she continued after marrying “Tommy.” The two of them frequented Joycrest Skating Rink and had their own special dance routine.
After their marriage, Tom and Theresa worked hard to help support the family they started. Both held multiple jobs in order to provide the most they could for little Tom and Deb. They did take some breaks from work to enjoy bowling and softball.
Some favorite family memories were made while vacationing on Seneca Lake each summer.
Theresa was very supportive of her children’s endeavors and took special pleasure in her grandchildren as they grew and began their own life adventures. In later years, especially after Tommy’s passing, Theresa enjoyed spending time on her computer.
Theresa will be remembered for the love she showed her family and the many friendships she made along the way.
There will be no calling hours. Private funeral services with interment in Maple Grove Cemetery will take place at the convenience of the family.
Walter J. Kent Funeral Home is assisting the family.
Theresa A. Jessick, 80, of Horseheads.
