It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Teresa DiVendra Minkin. She passed away February 22, 2021, at the age of 58. Terry was born in South Boston and grew up in Hull, where she had many fond memories growing up on the E Street.

Teresa was the beloved daughter of Teresa Sanfillippo DiVendra “Mama Tree” and the late Joseph DiVendra “Papa Joe” of Hull. She was the devoted mother of the late Teresa & Bartley Loftus of South Boston. She was the loving grandmother to her pride and joy, Patrick Loftus Santos of Melrose.

Terry was the sister of Jeanne DiVendra of Oneonta, NY, the late Frances Viola, Marie Null, Joseph DiVendra and Charles DiVendra, all of Hull.

She is loved and cherished by her many nieces, nephews, cousins, and great-nieces and nephews.

Terry’s greatest love was her two children whom she missed dearly. She had a heart of gold and loved deeply. She was strong and kind and her love knew no bounds. She was one of a kind, with a sense of humor that could bring you to tears. She had a love for Harley Davidson and was always out for an adventure. She was a friend and confidant to many.

Terry will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
