Theresa Cormier

It is with great love and profound sadness that we, the family of Theresa Cormier, announce her passing on Friday Dec 2, 2022, at the Palliative Care Unit of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital surrounded by her loved ones.

Theresa was born on June 1, 1930, in New Waterford, the daughter of Victor and Mary Ann (Cormier) Roach and was the last surviving member of her immediate family. She was predeceased by her parents, siblings Rose Agnes, Louis, Freddie, Charlie, and her husband of 69 years Joe.

Theresa’s passion for much of her life was her being an artist. In addition to producing many paintings, she also enjoyed teaching art to others.

She is survived by her daughter Rose Marie (Al) Phinney, sons Robert (Louetta) Victor (Debby), grandchildren Anika (Mike) Poth, Ryan (Kasia), great grandchildren Wyatt, Sonja, Clark, Troy, Sisters-in-law Irene and Veronica, along with numerous nieces and nephews.

The family would like to give special thanks to Theresa’s sister-in-law Irene Roach for her love and companionship. Those wishing to make a donation can do so to the New Waterford Food Bank, or to a charity of their choice.

Cremation has taken place under the care and compassion of McLellan Funeral Home. A Visitation followed by a Chapel Service Celebrating the lives of Joseph & Theresa will be held on Friday, February 10th, 2023, from 11 a.m. until the time of funeral service begins at 1 p.m. all in McLellan Funeral Home Chapel, 3183 Plummer Ave, New Waterford. Burial will follow in St. Joseph Cemetery Lingan with Deacon Lorne MacNeil officiating. The family invites all to attend a luncheon to be held at the New Waterford Knights of Columbus Hall following the burial. We invite you to share your memories, condolences and words of comfort directly to Joseph & Theresa's family by going to the Tribute Wall.

 

 

Remember Us

Don’t remember us with sadness,

Don’t remember us with tears,

Remember all the laughter,

We’ve shared throughout the years.

Now we’re contended

That our life it was worthwhile,

Knowing that we passed along the way

we made somebody smile.

When you are walking down the street

And you’ve got us on your mind,

We’re walking in your footsteps

Only half a step behind.

So please don’t be unhappy

Just because we’re out of sight,

Remember that we’re with you

Each morning, noon, and night.
