Therese (Tese) Connell, 65, of Northfield, daughter of the late James and Therese Connell, journeyed to her final home on July 9, 2019. After a lengthy battle with breast cancer she succumbed to the disease surrounded by her family.
Tese was a 1971 graduate of Holy Spirit High School and a 1975 graduate of Immaculata College.
Tese was passionate about her profession. She was a Certified Public Accountant and a partner in the accounting firm of Capaldi, Reynolds, and Pelosi P.A. where she worked for more than 25 years. Clients will testify to the level of her expertise, professionalism, and service. To her co-workers she was a friend, a mentor, and someone who could always be relied upon for help when needed. To many in the firm, she was family.
Tese was devoted to and enjoyed spending time with her family; she was a second mother to many of her nieces and nephews. She was an avid reader and also enjoyed traveling with a special fondness for the British Isles.
She will be sadly missed by her eight siblings: Jay of Northfield, Kevin (Debi) of Cypress, CA, Larry of Ventnor, Jeanne Girard (Tim) of Northfield, Brendan (Mallory) of Linwood, Kim Dlugosz (Joe) of Sedona, AZ, Terrence (Tricia) of Devon, PA, and Kristen Gindhart (Joe) of Sterling, VA.
