She was a talented seamstress, avid reader, and a die-hard beachgoer. Her love of the shore was a trait she passed on to her children. Proud of her Portuguese ancestry, she made many trips to The Azores, Madeira, and Portugal, where her fluency in her parents' native language served her well.

A member of the Amalgamated Meat Cutters Union, she worked as a clerk and cashier for Almacs Super Markets for over 20 years. Teresa volunteered at St. Francis Chapel in Providence.

She is survived by her children Frank and John McQuiggan, both of East Providence, R.I., Stephen McQuiggan of Chilmark, and Christine McQuiggan of Narragansett, R.I. She also leaves seven grandsons and one great-grandson. She was the sister of Mary Almeida Ferri of Barrington, R.I., and Anthony "Tony" Almeida of East Providence, R.I.
