To hear Theresa tell the tale, “Without realizing it at the time, I was getting an early education in funeral services. For years I witnessed the selfless 24/7/365 dedication that these directors gave to our community. The quality of their work grew out of their deep compassion and uncompromising care that they gave to each individual and family they served. Likewise, the Macy family has been providing that same dedication and personalized small town appeal-type of service to this community for the past 5 generations. I feel very honored to be a part of their 'extended family' as together we serve this amazing community.”
 
Over the years, Theresa has been involved in a variety of community services including Co-chair of Carlton Fun Days, St. John Altar Society, Carlton Downtown Development Association, McMinnville Elks Club, McMinnville Chamber of Commerce Leadership Program, as well as many school volunteer programs while her two daughters, Katie and Allie, attended Yamhill-Carlton schools.
