On Monday, Sept. 28, 2020, Theresa Lea Flynn of Brooksville, Florida, a loving daughter, mother, sister and friend, went home to be with her Lord and Savior. She was 58 years old.

Theresa was born on Aug. 25,1962, in Hollywood, Florida, to the late Jack C. Smith Sr. and Marzie Smith of Orlando, Florida. She married the love of her life, the late Patrick D. Flynn, on Aug. 4, 1988.

Theresa and her late husband, Pat, ran a car-hauling business for over 30 years. Theresa also did floral design as a hobby. She loved to grow roses in all colors but, especially, her yellow roses.

She loved shopping, cooking and singing. Theresa loved all of her family and was very grateful for all of their love and support not only for her, but also for her children.

Theresa leaves behind her loving mother, Marzie Smith; her daughters, Keri Waldrop (Orlando), Samantha Flynn (Brooksville); and sons, Patrick Flynn (Rebecca, Cleveland, Tennessee) and Tyler Flynn (also of Brooksville, Florida).

Theresa also leaves behind her grandchildren who never got to know her, Hannah, Kylie and Kaiden; her siblings, Jack Smith Jr. (Cheryl), Robert Smith (Julie Feltman), Douglas Wallace, Stephanie (Mike Sianis), Christine Morton (Randy), Kelly Smith, Debra Lovett (Joel); and many nieces and nephews.

We will be having a Celebration of Life on Nov. 15, 2020, at the home of her sister Debby in Daytona Beach. Let’s continue to remember the Theresa we all knew and loved!
