In memory of
Teresa M. Dallape
Dallape, Teresa M. January 24, 1918 - April 7, 2017 Teresa M. Dallape, age 99, passed away on Friday, April 7, 2017 surrounded by family. She was born on January 24, 1918 in San Pedro, California and grew up in Norwalk, California on a dairy farm and graduated from Excelsior High School. Teresa married Tommy on January 23, 1938. He passed away in 1997. They settled in what is now known as Costa Mesa, California on a dairy farm where they raised their five children. Teresa was active in St. John the Baptist Catholic Church and bowled for years with friends at Kona Lanes. She loved to travel far and wide through the years with trips to Europe, South America, and circling the globe on Pan AM. Teresa loved to garden and her roses were spectacular. Teresa was the rock and inspiration in all her family's lives, supportive, accepting and full of love. She brought us laughter and joy. We will honor her by trying to be more like her. She lives forever in our hearts. Teresa is survived by her children, Tom (Diane), Annette (James), Carole (Robert), Robert (Teri) and Don (Denise). She is also survived by her 11 loving grandchildren, Louis, Tom, Joseph, Michelle, Kristen, Carrie, Dana, Nicholas, Claire, Kyle, Kendall; and 10 great-grandchildren, Broc, Alex, Kara, Rhet, Kalli, Andrew, Tyler, Cooper, Graham and Mason.
