Teatra’s world consisted of spending time with her family and friends especially her children and parents. She affectionately referred to her daddy as “Daddy’s Girl” and her Mother as “Mommy World”. She was a loving mother who took pride in spoiling her children with trips to Disney and other places. As a mother she wanted her children to absorb all the skills needed to succeed. She was proud to instill the art of Hair Braiding to her daughter as she enjoyed braiding hair herself. As the family’s Diva
Fashionista she was always seen sporting the latest fashions in shoes and clothing. Her aspiration was to open her own T-Shirt Business and become a successful entrepreneur.

Teatra received the nickname “Moody” at an early age and anyone close to her needed no explanation on how she obtained that nickname, especially her brothers who knew that even as the only girl she only had to flash that “Moody Attitude” and they knew to keep it moving.
