Teresa Caltabiano has grown to be the spitting image of her late grandmother. She has Shirley Temple's lovely smile.

Shirley passed away at age 85 on February 10, 2014, at her home in Woodside, California.

However, her memory still lives on today most notably through her granddaughter, Teresa, the daughter of Shirley’s eldest child, Susan, according to Fabiosa.

It has been reported that the actress died from a lung disease brought about by her lifelong smoking habit.

When she was a child, Teresa looked a lot like her legendary grandma. Many people noticed that she inherited Shirley’s adorable smile.

In 2007, the "Bright Eyes" actress turned into a first-time great-grandma when Teresa gave birth to a baby girl.


Teresa is now a mother of three beautiful children - two girls and one boy.

Though Teresa didn’t follow in Shirley's footsteps, much the same as her grandmother, she cherished kids and chose her profession accordingly.


She is a teacher of English at Northwestern Middle School in Alpharetta, Georgia. Her grandmother must have been very proud of her.

Shirley, who was also an activist and the United States ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia, had three children from two marriages – Lori Black, Linda Susan Agar, and Charles Alden Black Jr.



She began her career when she was only three years old. From being a famous child star, her screen popularity decline when she reached her adolescent years.

She retired from acting at 22, but she returned to the industry eight years later. It has been reported that the actress died from a lung disease brought about by her lifelong smoking habit.

Her death certificate, held at San Mateo County, stated that the cause of her death was a chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).

Her family had stated that she’d died from natural causes on February 10, 2014, but they didn’t reveal that it was a disease caused by her smoking addiction.
