Theresa Quinlan

October 27, 1956 — April 20, 2021

Theresa Lynne (Baber) Quinlan, 64, born in Dallas, Texas on October 27, 1956 to Ray and Lelia Baber. She gained her Angel Wings, Tuesday, April 20, 2021 in Mesquite, Texas.

Theresa graduated from David W. Carter High School, Dallas, TX in 1974. She became a Mom at the early age of 17 and began a career in insurance. Theresa aspired to become a bookkeeper and attended night school while working to do just that. As technology advanced, Theresa was instrumental in setting up the infrastructure for her agency’s hardware system with the latest in insurance software. Theresa’s career spanned 46 years and she worked until the day she passed; giving her best to all she served.

Theresa would be described by those who knew her as strong, grateful, caring, welcoming, happy, awesome and a hard worker. She was a loving, giving and forgiving Mother, awesome NaNa, great sister, cool aunt, beautiful niece, and wonderful friend.

Some knew her as Terry, Theresa, ‘T’ (by her Mom), Annabel (by her grandparents when she was being tacky), Mom, NaNa, Sister, Aunt and Niece. Regardless of how you knew her, she was the same beautiful person inside and out! Theresa will be missed by all.

T, Until we meet again…we hope heaven has a beautiful patio for you to take in the heavens as you wait for those who will follow. We love you, forever and always.
