Mom you battled against a horrible disease right to last minute. Strength beyond belief.
Love you always and hope you are in a better place now.
You taught us to dream. You taught us to be individuals. You taught us to be caring. Money was never plentiful, however I clearly remember the long walks along St.Clair Ave during our summer school break to Christie pits park, High park and even our yearly trip to honest Ed’s for some new kicks and school supplies for the new school year. You always surprised us with a stop at a small convenience store for a treat.
Robin and I welcomed you into our home many many years ago. You helped raise our kids to be the fine gentleman they are today. You continued to go above and beyond helping to clean, cook, garden and always making yourself available for us and the rest of the family. Never letting anyone down. Thank you
Our deepest condolences to all the Roy Family. Therese has left quite a beautiful legacy in her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. I personally will always remember her homemade buns. So delicious. I wish I could have had a lesson from her. May she rest in God’s hands now. 🙏
How thankful I am for a Grandmother like you!
I have always admired and adored your “ take no **** “attitude.
I’m fiercely holding on to your last words of wisdom to me:
Put your foot down! And then kick them with other one
Oh boy, how you could make me laugh!
You’re unwavering dedication to your family was amazing to see! I don’t think there was ever any doubt in any of us that you loved and cared for us.
You showed me that family is all the matters!
Your love, wisdom and guidance are woven in the fabrics of my being.
And Will continue To live on thru my children, your great grandchildren and many more generations to come
Thank you so much for loving me for who i am.

I have so many fond memories of my Aunt Teresa. Her and my Uncle Nazaire allowed my Mom, Dad and us kids to live in their upstairs flat for a couple of years. She was a wonderful person who was always ready to welcome another at the dinner table. Christmas parties each year were a highlight for our family and there were definately some crazy times. She was an amazing cook. I know she loved her family beyond words and they loved and cherished her in return. You will be missed but not forgotten. Love Sheila
