Theresa Annette Lembi (Haff) passed away peacefully on October 25, 2023 at the age of 76. A beloved mother, grandmother, aunt, sister and friend, she leaves behind a legacy of love, kindness, and cherished memories.
Born in San Francisco, Terry was raised by her mother, Marie Haff, in Burlingame, California with twin sister, Kathy, and sister, Lee. She graduated from Burlingame High School in 1965 and then attended the College of San Mateo. Terry went on to join Pan Am airlines as a flight attendant and traveled the world sharing in many adventures with her twin sister by her side. She later married high school sweet-heart, Don Lembi. Together they raised their three daughters Nicole, Jackie and Danielle. Terry was extremely involved in PTA and school events, leading the charge to provide for her children and community. Later, when Don ran for city council and Mayor of Burlingame, Terry was instrumental in managing a successful campaign and standing by his side to support in every detail. In recent years, she's enjoyed spending time with friends and family, and watching her six grandchildren blossom and grow.
Terry is survived by her sister, Mary Lee Mercer (Bob Sutter), three daughters, Nicole O’Shea (Brian, Aiden 9, and Eliana 4), Jackie Hart (Ryan, Charlie 15, Will 12, Ben 9) and Danielle Lembi (Tyler 15). Terry touched the hearts of everyone she met with her warm smile and infectious laughter. She will be extremely missed. A service and celebration of Terry's life will be held on Friday December 1st at 11:30 a.m. at Graham-Hitch Mortuary in Pleasanton. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations be made to the American Heart Association in memory of Theresa Lembi.
