Throughout her life, beginning with her birthplace in Sotin, Yugoslavia, to Frankenburg, Austria, and finally to Chicago, Berwyn, and Lombard, Illinois, Theresia had always enjoyed gardening, sewing, and cooking. Sewing clothes for her family was a labor of love, and gardening was a celebration of the wonder of nature. Her favorite interest, though, was cooking. She always felt that cooking for family was a priority, and that sharing food with family and friends was one of the best ways to express her love.
