Theresa A. Pop

Theresa Ann Pop entered into eternal rest at her home on Wednesday, May 22, 2024.

Born on June 16, 1939, to William Jasper Scarborough and Margarite Belding Scarborough, Theresa was a dedicated wife, loving mother, and cherished grandmother. 

Being a native of Charleston, she enjoyed the Low-country life and raised her family here. Her work in the insurance industry was important to her for many years, but her love and commitment to her family was her most important and treasured occupation. 

In addition to her parents, Theresa is preceded in death by her beloved oldest son, Darren Pop, and her siblings. 

She is survived by her loving husband, Edmond Pop, her son Steven Pop, daughter-in-law Ginger Pop, and her adored grandchildren, William and Julia Pop. 

Together, they will join in honoring her legacy with a Mass of Christian Burial at the Church of the Nativity, 1061 Folly Road, Charleston, SC, on Tuesday, May 28, 2024, at 11:30 am.  A Burial service will follow at the Holy Cross Cemetery, 604 Fort Johnson Road, Charleston, SC 29412

As we gather to celebrate Theresa's life, let us reflect on the joy she brought to those around her and the memories that will forever remain in our hearts. Though she may have departed this world, her spirit will live on through the love she shared and the impact she made during her time with us.
