It is with great sadness that we announce the passing our mother, Theresa Remona (Farrell) Kehoe of Whitney Pier on Friday, June 8, 2018 at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney, surrounded by her loving family. Born on September 24, 1932 in Sydney, Theresa was the daughter of the late Thomas and Mary (MacDonald) Farrell.
Mom was a cherished mother, grandmother and great grandmother, and loving sister to her siblings.
She is survived by her children, David (Jackie), Barbara Kelly Drover (John), Raymond, all of Sydney, Dan (Michelle), Greenwood, Kerry Lynn Langlois (Claude), Halifax and Randy (Pam), Ontario; grandchildren, Amanda Collins, Malinda and Jonathan (Drover), Noah and Stephanie (Langlois), Logan and Caleigh (Kehoe), Tyler and Jessica (Kehoe), and great-grandchildren, Jarrod, Morgan, Joshua, Zachary and Alexander. Mom is also survived by her sisters, Dolores (Gerald) Putt, Alice Corbett, Patsy Kiley and Donna (Frank) Dziubek; sisters-in-law, Bertha Farrell and Anna Kehoe, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Besides her parents, Mom was predeceased by our father, Gerald; their infant son, Gerald Jr., and as well as her sisters, Margaret Nordine, Dorothy Foley, Mary Hartigan, Kathleen Dawson, and brothers, Pat, Tom, Raymond and John ‘Buddy’.
Mom was a member of the Memory Lane Singers, a member and Past President of the Royal Canadian Legion, Br 128 Ladies Auxiliary, as well as a member of the Legionnaire Singers.
