Kathleen and Family. Just learned of the passing of your Mother and offer my condolences. The last time I spoke to her was after my Mother’s funeral. They were the same age when they went to be with their God.
Kevin & Tom,
So sorry to learn of your Mom’s passing.
She was always welcoming when we visited, either at the farm, or at the Lake.
The world is a lesser place without her.
Dear Kathleen, Tom and Kevin, and all the O’Shea cousins. We loved Aunt Theresa. She came to see us in Alberta a few times and she and Aunt Barbara came to celebrate our daughter Sarah’s wedding. We had so much fun when she came bringing three of Tom’s kids. It was good to get to know some of the younger family members from Ontario. Aunt Theresa brought kindness, sincerity, and the love of family into our lives. She goes to be with all those she loves who went ahead of her to heaven. God Bless a dearest, cherished person.
Love, Marie (Morkin) and Steve Burger

My sincere condolences on the passing of your mother.
Aunt Theresa will be truly missed by many people. She was a very special person to our family. She was our connection with our dad, Tom. Always sharing stories about her times with our Dad. She came to visit us when we moved to Alberta getting to know our children and Grandchildren. I always had wonderful phone visits with her catching up with all the Ontario family news. I am sure she is in heaven enjoying being with Uncle Vincent and her siblings. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.

Sorry to hear of your dear Mother’s passing. My mom (Rita Morkin O’Leary) and Theresa would have great conversations, especially when Mary Morkin Maquire was also involved in the tea party. Theresa always seemed to be smiling. I hope your memories of her love keep her in your heart.

Dear O’Shea cousins-
Sending all of you my love and sympathy on the loss of dear Aunt Theresa. I told Tyler that my fondest memories of her are from summers he and I spent with her at the cottage in Port Franks. She was always so much fun to be with, and I can’t help but wonder the conversations she’s having with Uncle Vincent and Gammie & Poppa up there!
She was so special to all of us with that big smile and wholesome spirit. Such a life well lived and truly a woman we will cherish in our hearts forever ♥️
