Obituary of Theresa Marie Castro

Theresa Marie Castro, known to family and friends as “T” passed away suddenly on October 25, 2017 at her home in Grass Valley, CA at the age of 53. Theresa was born in Oakland, CA on June 1st, 1964 to parents Jerry and Linda Castro.

She attended California High School in San Ramon before moving to Livermore in 1980. She went on to reside in Pleasanton, Palo Alto, Nevada City, Portland Oregon, and Grass Valley. Theresa spent most of her career working in the field of marketing where she thrived for many years as marketing director for various high tech firms. During her working years she was known for an ability to get things done quickly and accurately. Her sense of style, class, and taste served her very well in her career.

Theresa had an impeccable sense of fashion and décor that was second to none, always having the nicest clothing, cars, and accessories to look her best. Her contagious laugh and smile would always light up the room and lift the spirits of people around her. Theresa enjoyed time with a wide variety of friends, family, and her dog Cooper. Theresa also enjoyed cycling, hiking, and eating dark chocolate. She was blessed to be able to spend many years later in life with her best friend of all, her mother, Linda Castro of Grass Valley. The mother and daughter bond that they had was an example of true human kindness that we all could learn from.

Theresa is survived by her family: Dan Castro (Brother), Stacy Castro, Lindy Castro, Danielle Castro, Cassidy Castro, Steven Lucker, Don Huston, Fran Huston, Charlie Huston, Virginia Huston, Clementine Huston, Cliff Ramos, Kim Allen, Scout Ramos, Maya Ramos, Max Ramos, Lois Webb, Michelle Webb, Patty Kubich, Amee Kubich, Sandi Kubich, Dawna Ramos.
