We thank the staff at the Water Tower Retirement Residence and CCAC who
tirelessly provided support and care for Theresa.
Theresa loved being in the kitchen and would have been happy feeding
the world, one piece of dessert at a time. This love of baking started when
Theresa worked at a lumber camp where she had a most appreciative group
of diners. In bygone days Theresa & Raymond enjoyed dances and were
known to take a spin around the kitchen together. She had a passion for
playing cards and enjoyed auction 45 with Edna & Winifred and euchre with
Sally & Edward and Agnes & Jerome. While at the Water Tower Theresa
enjoyed having company and appreciated the many visits from relatives
and friends who dropped by for a chat and kindly brought their homemade
desserts. Theresa will be missed by her dearest friend Edna, who throughout
the decades provided comfort, love and friendship during
daily phone calls.

God has you in His keeping; we have you in our hearts.
