Teresa DiVendra Minkin died on Feb. 22. She was 58.
Terry was born in South Boston and grew up in Hull. She had many fond memories of growing up on E Street.
Teresa was the beloved daughter of Teresa Sanfillippo DiVendra (“Mama Tree”) and the late Joseph DiVendra (“Papa Joe”), of Hull. She was the devoted mother of the late Teresa and Bartley Loftus, of South Boston, and loving grandmother to her pride and joy, Patrick Loftus Santos, of Melrose.
Terry was the sister of Jeanne DiVendra, of Oneonta, N.Y., and the late Frances Viola, Marie Null, Joseph DiVendra, and Charles DiVendra, all of Hull.
She is loved and cherished by her many nieces, nephews, cousins, and great-nieces and great-nephews. Terry’s greatest love was of her two children, whom she missed dearly.
She had a heart of gold and loved deeply. She was strong and kind, and her love knew no bounds. She was one of a kind, with a sense of humor that could bring you to tears. She had a love for Harley Davidson and was always out for an adventure. She was a friend and confidant to many. Terry will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
