A heartfelt thank you to the entire staff at Niagara Gardens, especially Sheila, for their friendship and exceptional care they showed to Theresia during her stay there. Much appreciation also extended to the Doctor's and medical team at The St. Catharines General Hospital for the care they gave to her during her short time there.

Our deepest condolences on the loss of a very sweet lady and wonderful neighbour. Theresia never failed to have a chat while working out front in her beautiful garden, enquiring about fellow neighbours, our growing kids and our pets! She will be sorely missed. Rest In Peace, James, Melany, Natalie and Peter Chesla (from across the street at #10).
