Obituary: Theresa Tina Sanders (Nov. 20, 1927 – Nov. 3, 2012)

 Theresa Tina Sanders entered eternal rest on November 3, 2012, in Crescent City. She was born on Nov. 20, 1927, in Pittston, Penn., the fifteenth child of Salvatore and Josephine Burgio from Sicily. She is survived by her beloved husband of 52 years, James Thomas Sanders, of Smith River.
