1926 – 2011
Theresa Marie McCloskey passed away peacefully Saturday, November 12, 2011, surrounded by her family.
Theresa grew up near Brockville, Ontario; daughter of James and Theresa Tierney; with four brothers, Bernie, Len, Frank, Allan and sisters, Dorothy and Carole. She met her future husband Keith while he was posted to Brockville for Officer Training during WWII and they married in 1945. They raised their daughters in Toronto, then moved to Calgary in 1989 to be closer to family after Keith’s stroke. They devotedly cared for each other and spent many happy hours with family. Theresa was a special presence in the lives of her grandchildren. She enjoyed bird watching and made many trips to the Inglewood Bird Sanctuary and Nose Hill. There are fond memories of those visits and the day that a chickadee perched on her outstretched finger.
Theresa is survived by her cherished daughters, Paula and Patty (Bob); grandchildren, Chris (Shawna), Tim (Chelsea), Becky, Tricia (Chad), Kathryn and Anne; and her sister Carole. Theresa was predeceased by her beloved husband Keith; her four brothers, Bernie, Len, Frank and Allan; and her sister Dorothy.
