Theresa Lorene Kirkland, 58, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Thursday the 18th of October. She was born July 28, 1960, in Waxahachie.

Theresa was a very loving mother and wife who went out of her way to take care of everyone that she knew in her life. When it came to animals and people she would never turn one away, her love for nurturing others was always abundant.

Theresa loved spending the spring and summers growing plants and vegetables in her yard and she could name everyone that she had. Theresa was an artist in everything that she did, and all her projects were always as bright and cheerful like she was. The heavens gained a very beautiful angel that will be greatly missed by all her loved ones.
