Theresa was born on May 3, 1931 in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, daughter of the late Lovel and Ruby (Futrell) Berkley. She was united in marriage to her beloved husband Glenn McBride Rinehart on June 12, 1951 in St. Clair Shores. The couple made their home in Fraser in 1956 and was blessed with three beautiful children of whom they loved and cherished. Theresa's family always came first and she made sure her children were raised with family values in a loving home. She had a kindred spirit and a heart of gold. Theresa loved to tend to her yard in the warm summer months. She enjoyed sewing and loved to cook for her family and friends. Theresa loved angels and has a beautiful collection. Above all, she was a devoted wife, loving mother and a caring grandmother and great grandmother who treasured wonderful memories throughout her lifetime. Although we grieve her passing, we are truly grateful for our beloved mother who taught us to be kind and compassionate to others by the life she has led. Her light will continue to glow in our hearts forever.
