September 6, 2014 – Calgary, AB
With profound sadness we announce the passing of the lovely Theresa Morin. It is, however, with great joy that we share with you the life Theresa experienced.
She is survived by the love of her life, Michael Stiles and their three beautiful daughters, Madeleine, Eve and Summer. Theresa was happiest when surrounded by Michael and the girls whether in their home in Calgary, Fernie or the family Ranch near Longview.
Theresa is survived by, and will be greatly missed by her large extended family; her Mother and Father, Emile and Lorraine Morin, her six siblings, David (Charlotte Echtner), Michele (Gordon Klit), Anne (Ross Newhouse), Daniel (Veronica Morin), Lucille (Thorne Forrest), Loralea (Dean Shwed) and her many nieces and nephews. Theresa had the great privilege of hosting a Morin Family Reunion in Fernie in August…the stories and memories are already legendary.
Arlene Stiles, will also profoundly miss her daughter-in-law and the loving care and support Theresa always extended to her.
Nature, active living and spirituality were the building blocks of Theresa’s soul. A life long learner and a natural teacher, Theresa loved sharing her enthusiasm for life with her family and friends.
Theresa’s passions were varied; travel, yoga, music, gardening, horseback riding, and all outdoor activities were things she enjoyed and resulted in many and varied groups of friends. Her skiing buddies, her 12th St. Gang, those in Banff, and all the friends from her various walks of life will miss her spirit.
Theresa received her teaching Degree from the University of Calgary and rounded out her education by cycling through France and mastering the French Language. This resulted in a teaching profession at West Island College, which she enjoyed for several years.
In 1995, Theresa and Mike started a family with whom they continued to travel and explore the outdoors. From Banff to Europe, Australia to Peru and many other places around the world, the Stiles Family Lived!
After a valiant battle with cancer, continually supported by her extensive network of family and friends, Theresa passed away surrounded by Love. Our sincere thanks go out to the staff of Foothills unit 47 for their gentle and thoughtful care of Theresa.
