Theresa Koelewyn On Netflix’s Life After Death
In Netflix’s “Life After Death with Tyler Henry” Tyler and his mom work to unravel a true-crime mystery in his own life. In 2019, his mother took a DNA test and discovered that the woman named Stella Guidry who raised her wasn’t her biological mother. She also revealed that she was kidnapped and raised by a convicted killer.
Henry told on the show, “I want to learn more about what happened to my mom’s family. She could’ve had a completely different life that was taken from her by this criminal.”
And his mom learns that Stella Guidry the woman who raised her wasn’t even her mother. A weight was lifted off of her because she considered Stella “everything bad a person can be.” As for Theresa’s father, Guile Nestle died on 2 December 2017 at the age of 80.
In the show’s first episode, Henry and Theresa look at her birth certificate and his mom says, “Up until my mid-50s, I thought my biological parents were Stella (Mary Guidry) and Guile (Nestle).” She says that knowing Stella wasn’t her mother lifted “a ton of bricks” off her back because Stella had served 30 years in prison and was a known con artist.
Speaking about Stella, she shared, “She’s everything bad a person could be”.
Who Are Theresa Koelewyn Biological Parents?

In the show, eventually, Henry helps his mom investigate her biological mother and this leads to her biological family in New Orleans. The family shares that Mary “had a breakdown” after giving her up. But, they found each other and that’s all that mattered.
