Theresa M. Gonzalez

January 9, 1920 ~ March 31, 2024 (age 104) 104 Years Old


Theresa M. Gonzalez, age 104, passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 31, 2024.  She was born in Camden, New Jersey on January 9, 1920 to James and Josephine Wilson. She was raised in Camden and graduated from Camden High School in 1938.

Our beloved Theresa was a cherished aunt and friend who graced our lives for over a century.  Her life was lived to the fullest. She lived on her own until she turned 100 years old and drove her vehicle until the age of 99.  She was independent, spunky, responsible, and meticulous. Her sense of fashion was one of her best traits. She was always dressed for success and wore matching accessories and shoes with all her outfits. She was best known for her honest and feisty nature. She spent her days volunteering at Christus Spohn Hospital in Alice, Texas.  One of her responsibilities at the hospital was to prepare the chapel at the hospital before every mass. She will always be remembered for her dedication to community service and her love for the catholic church.

Theresa is preceded in death by her husband Noe M. Gonzalez; her parents James and Josephine Wilson; her sister Josephine Wilson; and her brother James Wilson.

Left to cherish her memories are her nephew Adan (Pearlie Jo) Valadez of Alice, Texas; her nephew James Wilson of Pitman NJ; her nieces Jeanette Habina of Clearwater, FL, Karen Wilson of Cherry Hill, NJ, Rose Lafferty of Williamstown NJ, Peg Dodelin of Audueon, NJ; her great niece Velma Jo (Brent) Starr of Alice, Texas, Velisa Rodriguez of McAllen, Tx and Joey (Yolanda) Valadez of Alice, Texas and her dear and beloved friend Mrs. Minnie (Joe) Vela of Alice.

The family would like to thank all the staff members at Premier Nursing home and Astella Home Health Hospice  for the acts of kindness and care they provided Theresa, Fr. Jason for his love and compassion and all her friends at Christus Sphon hospital that always made her feel so special at each birthday celebration.
