Teresa O'Reilly (nee Garvey) passed away peacefully surrounded by her family at Faith Manor LTC, Brampton, on Thursday, December 1, 2022 at the age of 91.
Beloved wife of the late John Peter for 60 years. Loving mother of Rosemarie (Peter Bailey), Sheila Ounpuu (Mike), Phyllis (Christopher Moher), Sean (Debbie), and Yvonne. Cherished Grandma of Meagan O'Reilly. As the oldest of 12 children born in County Galway, Ireland, she will be dearly missed by a large family of siblings, nieces & nephews.
Known for her kindness, loyalty and generous heart, Teresa will be lovingly remembered by her friends from church, her exercise buddies at Cawthra Seniors Centre, the gals from TOPS, her former co-workers at Gateway - Canada Post, many connections throughout the Toronto Irish community, and dear neighbours from Saunders & Garnet Avenue. The first thing many noticed about Mom was her beautiful blue eyes. Once they got to know her, they would comment on the sparkle in those eyes, how she was always on the go, and what a joy it was to hear her mischievous laugh. She leaves a legacy of believing in faith, family and hard work that will never be forgotten. Friends may call at the Turner & Porter "Peel" Chapel, 2180 Hurontario St., Mississauga (Hwy 10 N. of Q.E.W) on Tuesday from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. Prayers at 3pm.
