January 9, 1963
– January 6, 2015
It is with great sorrow and sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Teresa at Victoria Hospice.
Teresa was born in Trail B.C. on January 9, 1963 to the late Maria (Mitzi) and Johnny Miros. She graduated from Castlegar’s Stanley Humphries Senior Secondary School in 1981. Teresa’s schooling and work took her various places including Toronto and Guelph University, Calgary with Loomis, Vancouver with the B.C. Housing Commission, Castlegar’s Selkirk College. Teresa was living in Victoria these past years with her husband John and worked at Camosun College.
Teresa enjoyed taking long walks, gardening, adult education courses, a carefree round of golf and the occasional short “road trip” in her red car. Teresa’s wonderful golden retriever Murphy was at her side during her illness.
Teresa leaves many loving memories for her husband John and step children Jennifer and Stephen. Big brothers Matt and Steven (Eliane), and her cherished nephews Francois and Jean. Teresa left us far too early in life after two battles with cancer, but she left us with a lesson of courage that we are very proud of. Teresa will live on in us.
The family wishes to thank the staff at BC Cancer Agency (Vancouver Island Centre), Royal Jubilee Hospital and Victoria Hospice for the wonderful care Teresa received throughout her journey; Dr. Vanessa Bernstein, Oncologist and Dr. Zilber-Shlensky GP for their management of Teresa’s illness over these past years.
At Teresa’s request, no service will be held. To send a message of condolence or to sign the online memorial guestbook please visit http://www.earthsoption.com/
