Teressa was born on May 24th, 1948 to Jonathan Bluejacket and Alice Hollandsworth (Bluejacket). Teressa grew up in a family of seven children. In the late 1960’s she met and fell in love with Peter DiPrima and soon moved to Brooklyn New York to begin their life together. The family then moved to Madison Wisconsin in 1976 and raised their 4 children here. Mom worked as a lunch lady in the Madison School District at Madison West High School for over 25 years and was loved by all the students and staff. Family was what Teressa cherished most. Family meals were always very important and we all ate dinner together. To be around family was what made her heart happy. She was a loving daughter, sister, mother and grandmother. She leaves behind a BIG Texas family that will miss her tremendously. All the summer vacation beach days spent together laughing and enjoying making many memories together. What gives us peace is knowing she excepted Jesus as her Lord and savior. We look forward to seeing her again one day in Heaven.
