Theresa C. Amundson passed away in the early morning of April 30, 2020 in the company of her husband and children. Theresa was the youngest daughter of
Joe and Isabel Gonzalez, where she had four older sisters (Yolanda, Cruz, Mina, Maggie) and a younger brother (Joseph). Theresa’s family was brought up
with a very strong Faith in God and entrusted their beliefs into the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

She was born in San Antonio Texas and moved to San Pedro, California when she was thirteen years old. She attended Dana Middle School for a couple years
before attending and graduating from Mary Star of the Sea High School.

Theresa met Albert while she was in high school and later married him in July of 1970. They had four children together, three sons and one daughter, and
proceeded to bring them up in the Catholic Faith. She was a stay at home mom who devoted her life to God, her family, her friends, and any other who may need her prayers.

Theresa served as a Eucharistic Minister for several years serving those at her church as well as to the sick and needy. Often family and friends would call her
and use her connection to God to send a blessing or prayer to everyone who may need them. She would Bless her house every night with the Lords Four Guardian
Angels to protect her, her family, and her loved ones. When anyone would ever leave her house, she would always bless them with a “God be with you, and
I love you”.

Theresa was a seamstress by trade and specialized in all types of arts and crafts. Her aprons and ceramics were often donated to her favorite yearly event at
the Mary Star Fiesta. She loved working at that event because it was the one place where she could display her work as well as visit with any family or friends
who would pass by her booth.

Theresa’s eleven grandchildren were her “Blessing of Life” and her “Reason for Living” She would spend hours talking to others about her grandchildren and
the time she had with them. Theresa is survived by her husband of 50 years, Albert Amundson III and their children Michael, Anthony, Jonathan, and Juliana
along with their spouses (Brandie, Jennifer, Carla, & David).

The family respectfully requests that in lieu of flowers donations be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.
