Comedienne
    (January 10, 1948-October 10, 2002)
    Regular on TV series 'Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In' (1969-70)
    Played title role in the TV police series 'Get Christie Love' (1974-75)
    Acted in 'That Man Bolt (1973),' 'Black Eye (1974)' and 'Vampira (1974)'
    She alternated spelling her name with and without the 'h' (Theresa/Teresa).
    She started her show biz career as a singer with the long forgotten Doodletown Pipers.
    After she left 'Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In' she guested 3 times in 1971.
    She played a character in the short lived TV series 'The Funny Side (September-December 1971)' called 'minority wife.'
    Because she refused to screen kiss anyone on 'Get Christie Love,' romantic interests were not written for her.
    She became a Jehovah's Witness and abandoned her career.
    She was the first African-American woman to portray a title cop character in a TV show.
    She died in a house fire at age 54 (October 10, 2002).
