It is with deep sadness, we announce the passing of Theresa Rachel Callaghan, at the age of 83. She left us peacefully on Monday December 2, 2019 after a lengthy battle with dementia and cancer.
She will be forever missed by her devoted husband Frank Callaghan. She also leaves to cherish her memory, two sons, Gord (Kathleen), Clay (Nancy) and five granddaughters, Carly, Bridget, Laura, Paige and Olivia.
Theresa is also survived by her brother-in-law Bill (Sharon) Callaghan and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her son Martin, her parents George and Clarenda Lalande, her father and mother-in-law, Walter and Nora Linna, and all of her siblings.
