Teresa Lynn Aimone Blackburn was born on Sept. 4, 1956, in Pekin, Ill., to Dr. and Mrs. Joseph A. Aimone. She married Claude Blackburn in 1993 at the Apostles Episcopal Church in Coppell.

Teresa attended Pekin Grade School and High School, was a member of the National Honor Society and Pekin Melody Maids, and participated in the Youth Group at St. John's Lutheran Church. After graduation she attended Marycrest College and studied nursing. After one year, she transferred to Northern Michigan University where she graduated with a degree in Botany and Horticulture. After graduation she attended DuPage Horticultural School in North Chicago to increase her knowledge of horticulture. Upon graduation, she became a DuPage Horticultural School faculty member.

Teresa spent her entire working career in the greenhouse industry. She was first employed by the Ball Seed Co. in North Chicago as a writer for Grower Talks, a professional magazine for the industry.

The final aspect of her career was spent in Texas promoting products of the Henry F Michell Company of King of Prussia, Pa.
