Therese went to be with the Lord on January 10, 2017 at the age of 90. Therese will forever be cherished by her seven surviving children: Roger (Frances) of Duncan, Albert of Duncan, Louise (Robin) of Williams Lake, Carol (Greg) of Kelowna, Diane (Bruce) of Kelowna, Marie (Rob) of Princeton, and Daniel (Wendy) of Williams Lake; 20 grandchildren, 27 great grandchildren, one great-great grandchild, and three siblings: Florence Stonehouse, Alice McCrea, and Leon McCrea. Theresa was predeceased by her devoted husband Leo (2015), her third son John (2009) and by 10 of her 13 siblings. Therese was born March 20, 1926 in Prud’homme, Saskatchewan to Clement and Augustine McCrea, the 9th of 14 children. While growing up in Zenon Park, she met the love of her life Leo. In 1943, Leo and Therese married in Victoria, BC and began their life together in Youbou, BC, Shawnigan, BC and eventually settling in Kelowna, BC. Therese was a devoted mother and loving wife. Therese and Leo, with their servant hearts, never hesitated to help family, church, and community. Her joy in life was her family and serving God. A special thank you from the Larmand family to Dr. Larry Bobyn for his care and dedication that always went above and beyond our expectations. Thank you to all the staff and nurses at Spring Valley Care Home for all their kindness and devotion to our Mom, and for loving her like she was their own.
