IN LOVING MEMORY
Theresa (Terri) McIntyre
Aug. 9, 1953 – Feb. 21, 2016
Theresa (Terri) McIntyre died peacefully on Feb. 21, 2016 at Dr. Helmcken Memorial Hospital with her children and partner Jim by her side after an unexpected and brief illness.
Terri was predeceased by her parents Norman and Elsie Hundspedt and her husband John McIntyre. Terri is survived by her siblings Ted, David, Carol, Margie and Elva. She also leaves behind her three children: Craig (Alysha), Angelene (Mike), Deanna (Luke), and Kale (Darlene) as well as her eight grandchildren: Colby, Wyatt, Rylan, Preslie, Jaxen, Joey, Jed and Reggie.
Terri was born Aug. 9, 1953 in Vancouver, B.C. but lived her life in the North Thompson Valley, where she raised her children, made many close friends and started her career. Terri’s kids were everything to her. She loved her family passionately and unconditionally. Her kids learned from Terri to work hard and to play often, to laugh and to love, to tell the truth even when it hurt and to remember to forgive. They learned how to keep a clean house and to balance a cheque book, how to plant a garden and to feed a family. They learned that there is always time for laughter and a chat, and that a little common sense goes a long ways. Terri was very proud of her children and she was blessed to be their friend as well as their mom.
Terri worked at Evergreen Acres in Clearwater, B.C. for 30 years. She had an amazing ability not only to provide phenomenal care for the seniors but also to use her humor and wit to establish an everlasting friendship. Her strength and compassion made her an excellent caregiver.
Terri will be tremendously missed by all; family, friends, clients and co-workers.
