Teresa Lynn Atwood
10 September, 1947 – 4 March, 2021
ATWOOD, Teresa Lynn, passed away peacefully with her family at her side on March 4, 2021. Today we said goodbye to Noisy Grandma. We have so many amazing memories; her giant bubbles, her amazing blackberry jam, the time she dressed up as the Easter bunny, the time she painted huge goose eggs and hid them in the chicken coop, the time she fell off her bike in the Tofino bike park and the time she dressed up as "Super Noisy Grandma" for Halloween are just a few. She was larger than life and louder than anyone else I know. I love that you gave my kids so many funny, loud and messy memories. Thank you and we love you. Noisy Grandma was Grandma to Devin, Ocea, Solana, Kavin and Ryley. Mom to Rick, Stepmom to Robyn Molina and Margaret Baxter. She also leaves a loving husband of over 40 years (Ken) who cared for her 24 hrs a day during this second battle with cancer. No service by her request. Flowers are gratefully declined, donations would be appreciated by the family to the Alberni Palliative Care.

I'm very saddened to hear of Terry's passing. I felt she would pull through but it was not to be. There was so much more life to live. Terry was my cousin. She was part of my childhood. Lots of adventures as kids. Memory of her and my sister Judy building a raft at Dodd Narrows and ending up on Gabriola Island with nothing but their bathing suits on. No shoes. Them walking the back roads looking for help. Our families frantically looking for them.....days before cell phones! Another time her and us cousins hiking to where Duke Point ferry now is , swimming in the ocean....we named the bay Jusuelynter Bay after us (Judy, Susie, Linda, Terry). Those were the good ol' days. I'm so sad.

Oh dear, I am struggling as to how to start. Usally I would call on Terry for help . I would like to share a couple of good memories of time spent with Treasea. She was a huge part of my family's life. Terry taught me to speak from the heart and speak the truth, for promoting our business when I did public speaking. She had taken Toast Masters training in Port Alberni; her advice really worded except when I got up for my first time and gave a speach at my dad's celebration of life. Yup, Terry helped me write my speach. My speach was a disaster. I turned my back to everyone and proceeded to give my speach. Well with more practice she got me out in front of the crowds.
Another memory is one evening at our home in Comox while Terry was visiting I picked up a glass of water that I had left on the table and had a drink then Terry said after she watched me drink it; your cat just washed her paws in your water glass. I squeeled why didn't you tell me before I drink it?
She had a good laugh and from that day on I've never drink from any unattended glasses.
Teresa always made life just a bit more specail for friends, family and she went out of her way to bring joy and put a smile on childrens faces. She provided toys, and fun activities, catching fogs and evening adventures which included flaslights . Now these moments are treasured memories.
She was greatly loved and will be missed by all. Love Lincoln
