March 2, 1930June 11, 2020

Passed away peacefully on Thursday, June 11, 2020 at St. Joseph’s Lifecare Centre at the age of 90. Theresa is predeceased by her parents George and Mary Jo Neary, as well as brothers and sisters Kevin, Michael, Steven, Nicholas, Winifred, Vera, Molly, Frances, Rita, Margaret and Nora. She will be lovingly remembered by her nieces, nephews and many special friends in Newfoundland. Her sweet smile and cheerful disposition will be dearly missed by her family and friends in Ontario, especially Deborah Sanderson, Ron Cowell and Mark Cowell who feel so very blessed to have had Theresa in their lives. Theresa left Newfoundland to live in Ontario in 1951 where she resided for 70 years and retired from TRW in Brantford. She was well known from her many years of service at St. Basil Parish. She lovingly touched so many lives, and all who knew her loved her dedication and sense of humor. They can find comfort in knowing she is at peace with the Lord where she longed to be. Cremation has taken place and a Funeral Mass will be held at a later date. If desired, donations in memory of Theresa may be made to The Canadian Cancer Society or to St. Basil Parish.

I worked with Teresa for many years at TRW. We kept in touch each year with a Christmas card until just recently. She was a lovely lady and I still have the ornaments for Christmas she made me. Rest In Peace Teresa and know how well you were thought of.

I was so sorry to hear of Theresa's passing, but, I am comforted that she is now with her Lord. Theresa was such a huge part of the St Basil's family and she is greatly missed. I found Theresa to be a role model in her devotion to the Lord. Her unfailing faith and devotion was so uplifting. My sincere condolences.

Aunt Theresa was such a precious woman! All her nieces,nephews,family and friends really enjoyed spending time with her on her visits to St. John’s over the years. We all loved her dearly.
My father,Kevin Neary,was the oldest of 12 children and I believe Aunt Theresa was the third youngest in the family. It is so sad to see that all twelve of them have now passed away.
She will be sadly missed by many friends and family here in Newfoundland. Love you forever,Aunt Theresa!
