Obituary

Theresa Russo passed away peacefully on August 29, 2019 surrounded by her loving family. She was 90 years old. Theresa was born on January 22, 1929 in White Plains, New York to Ralph and Madeline Carrera. She was raised in Hartsdale and grew up working with her father on their family owned nursery.

Theresa married the love of her life, Olerio (Larry) Russo, on June 20, 1948 at Mt. Carmel Church in White Plains. They started a family together. While Larry operated their family business, LTR Nursery, Theresa centered her affection upon her family and made the circle of her home the embodiment of her life’s work. Theresa loved to cook and host. Her house was the center of countless holidays, parties, cookouts, and casual nights for family and friends. Her love for her kids, grandchildren and great-grandchildren was only surpassed by the love for her sweetheart, Larry. He was incredibly devoted to her for the entirety of their lives together. They were married for 64 years until Larry passed in November 2012.

Theresa is survived by her beloved children Madeline Henry and her husband Gerald of Crestwood, Ralph Russo and his wife Kathy of Hartsdale, Joanne Keagle and her husband Ira of Poughkeepsie, Linda Camilli and her husband Bob of Briarcliff Manor, her dear grandchildren who were the pride and joy of her life, Jessica, Danielle, Angela, Gina, Bobby, Kevin, Erika, Kristen, Lisa, and Will, along with her great-grandchildren, Grace, Mia, Ruby, Dylan, Matthew, Zachary, Gabriella, Isabella, Aubrey, Lenora, Carina, Kohen, Ella and Clara. She was predeceased by her sister, Jeanne.

The family would like to extend their deep appreciation to Dr. Steven Thau who cared for Theresa with the greatest care and compassion. They would also like to extend their sincere thanks to the nursing staff at Phelps Memorial Hospital who made her last days comfortable.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital. Visitation will be held at Beecher Flooks Funeral Home, Inc., Pleasantville, New York on Tuesday September 3, 2019 from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Mass will be held at Saint Augustine’s Roman Catholic Church in Ossining, New York on Wednesday September 4, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. Burial will follow at Mt. Calvary Cemetery at 11:30 a.m. in North White Plains, New York.
