Henrietta was born on September 20, 1937 in West Allis, Wisconsin to the late Henry J. and Emily R. (nee Gerth) Weide. She was married on August 30, 1958, to Donald Teresinski at Saint Rita’s church in West Allis.
As a young girl, her free time was filled with summer softball and winter speed skating. After marriage, Henrietta was involved for a number of years with the West Allis – West Milwaukee Recreation Department where, among other things, she assisted with the construction and painting of scenery for Boys and Girls Club plays. Painting soon developed into a lifelong hobby for her. Henrietta loved camping! As a founding family of the West Allis Nite Owls family camp group, she took great pleasure in the weekend getaways with the group. She also loved camping at our many National Parks. She was a lover of the Disney characters and their stories, attending kids sporting events, bowling and, of course, the Green Bay Packers. Knitting and crocheting was another hobby of hers and for many years she could be found assisting the seniors in the knitting group at the Village at Manor Park. In 1984, Henrietta was part of the founding of Candy Cane Lane and for over 12 years she could be spotted most December evenings braving the cold and snow collecting donations for the MACC Fund.
