Obituary

Theresa Nixon passed away peacefully on July 16, 2017. She was 95.

Theresa was born on May 11 in 1922 to her parents, Enrico Guerra and Rose (Bianco). She married Harold (Nick) Nixon in 1967. Theresa worked for General Electric while her husband Nick worked as an engineer. The Nixons spent many years in Syracuse, New York and later lived in Las Cruces, New Mexico. 

Theresa was generous, vivacious, and kind.  She loved to travel and amassed an impressive passport during her lifetime.  She was quite the gambler and delighted in heading to the casino for a day or night out.  Theresa enjoyed life and brought joy to others through her generosity and thoughtfulness.  She was always a hit with everyone she met, whether on a trip, at dinner, at a Penn State tailgate, or simply in her everyday life. She adored her daughter, Fran, and doted on her granddaughters whenever she could.  She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. 

Theresa is survived by her loving daughter and son-in-law, Francine and William Milks of New Hope, PA; her granddaughter Lisa Byrne and husband Kevin Byrne; her granddaughter Britta Milks and husband Jason Petrarca; her brother, Joe Guerra; and numerous nieces, nephews, and grandchildren.  She is preceded in death by her husband, Nick; her brother, Paul Guerra; and her sister, Mary Mancuso.

Theresa was buried in a private ceremony on July 22, 2017, in Las Cruces, NM, where she joined her beloved Nick. A private memorial for family and friends took place on July 19, 2017 at Leaver/Cable of Buckingham, PA.

In lieu of flowers, please celebrate Theresa's life by remembering her love of adventure and taking the time to do something you are passionate about.
