Theresa was born on September 26th, 1963 in Barrhead, Alberta and was the 12th and youngest child of William and Mary Anne Roberts. Her family moved to Revelstoke in 1967 and then to Salmon Arm in 1968 where she was raised, schooled and bonded with many dear, lifelong friends. She lived, worked and raised her children, David and Crystal, in Vancouver, the city she loved, and it was there, at the Vancouver General Hospital that she passed on Saturday, July 19th supported by the loving presence of her son and daughter.
Theresa was predeceased by her Father and Mother, her eldest sister Mary, and her brothers Ron and Bill. She leaves to miss her loving heart, her sharp wit and her passion for life: her son David, her daughter Crystal, her sisters Sheila Robertson in North Delta, Mona Bradley in Salmon Arm, Eileen Loewen (Darrell) in Vernon, Maureen in Dublin, Ireland and her brothers Patrick (Kathy) in Fort Smith, NWT, Jim (Barb) and Dennis in Salmon Arm and Kevin in Vancouver. She was a proud Aunty to 5 nephews and 12 nieces. Theresa was also thrilled to be looking forward to the birth of her first grandson in September.
Theresa felt truly blessed to have so much love and support in her life and especially in the past, difficult year from her family, her loyal friends and her co-workers at the B.C. Ferry Corp.
“The mystery of love is greater than
the mystery of death.”
