Theresa Agnes Hulshof passed away peacefully at home on February 26, 2021 in San Jose, CA. She was 73 years young. Theresa's attitude was a beacon of courage, especially with her recent journey with Lymphoma. When she received the news that there was no cure, she said, “This is God’s Will”. Having conquered breast cancer twice and Lymphoma once, Theresa demonstrated daily that she was a tenacious warrior when faced with any obstacle in her path. Her tenacity overflowed into her work, too. She devoted 21 years to working for the County of Santa Clara, most recently as a Child Support Officer. As a devout Catholic, Theresa always attended Sunday mass, even doing so virtually during the pandemic. She liked to cook, and was good at it, and thoroughly enjoyed watching her favorite mystery shows on TV. What she truly loved, though, was spending quality time with her family. Her beautiful soul leaves behind her husband of 41 years, Mark, her children, Steve, Marie and Michelle, and two furry kitty babies, Cali and Pixel. Theresa, full of optimism, selflessness, and strength, was the ultimate role model. She was loved by many, and is missed so very dearly. She will remain forever in our hearts, and we wish her well on her next journey.
