Dear family of Theresa, just would like you to know you have been in my thoughts and prayers since I heard of her passing. I knew her as a faith filled member of Blessed Trinity Parish. A memory I have of her is her “killer” apple pie she often donated to a funeral meal luncheon over the years. God’s continued blessings on you all.

Theresa and I would stop and chat after daily Mass at St. Joseph's. She would make me smile, tease me, always ask about my family as well as my own well being. She was sincere and kind. She provided me with hugs, stories of her life experiences, of her family, her little love - Naomi - and would occasionally send me off to school with a brown bag filled with cookies or her famous bran muffins.
When you shared info with Theresa - she would not forget...she knew the names of my sons and would ask about each of them and after finding out the date of our wedding anniversary - she had a card for us every year. She sure loved her family - from stories of her brothers and sisters to her own children and grandchildren. I remember how appreciative she was as she told me the story of how her son took her car to get it fixed and said "No mom, they didn't charge anything :)"
She just had to stop for a moment to make me laugh and tell me how she didn't know how to turn the rental car engine on. She also said she would never forget the kindness of her brother who gave her the condo she enjoyed by the park.
Honestly, she was a true joy to talk to as she had wit and again, such a love for her family. I will miss her smile and laugh, and when reflecting on my time with her...Theresa truly made my path through life much brighter. I know she is well taken care of as her passing was on August 22nd - the memorial of the Queenship of Mary.
My heart goes out to her entire family and all who knew her. My thoughts and prayers are with you. God bless!

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Theresa. She was a dear friend for many years. We met at the natatorium and then starting meeting for breakfast once a month. She always had beautiful comments and stories about her children and grandchildren. I miss her!

Dear Brady children,
We were saddened to hear that Theresa has died but we are sure she is happy in her new surroundings. What a fine Mother you were blessed to have. I met Theresa when we entered St. V . in 1952. From then until we graduated in 1956 we were good friends any shared many good time. For many years we met monthly for "bridge" which was mostly laughing and sharing our lives as mothers of young children!!!We were so happy when you became neighbors( you on Roslyn and us on Greenwood).The Santa Claus visit party often appears on our pictures. Most recently when we met it was for tea or lunch but again the main topic was always family and laughter. We know you will miss her as we will also. You are in our prayers as you celebrate a beautiful life . With Love and Blessings,
MarieAnn, Ray and Kathleen Thomas

Dear Brady Family,
Aunt Theresa brought such love, joy and happiness to me since the passing of Aunt Kitty. She shared stories I never knew about the Malloy family and her life. I will cherish our relationship always. I am heartbroken that she is gone but so grateful for the time that I had with her. She was such a blessing in my life. You are all in my prayers. May our Saviour give you peace and comfort. Love, your cousin Helen
