Theresa Blanco peacefully passed away on June 28, 2023, at a New Orleans hospital with family by her side.  Born December 1, 1946, to Bernice and Avery Burke.
Theresa was a very selfless person with a kind loving and giving heart that always put others before herself.  She enjoyed working with ceramics, taking care of her plants and admiring the beauty of wildflowers.  Taking care of people and giving gifts brought much joy to her.  Her most favorite hobbies were rock digging and hunting for arrow heads which was part of her family heritage.  She will be greatly missed by all that knew her.
