MCPHEE, Theresa Agnes

Cape Breton Post - - IN MEMORIAM -

It is with sad­ness that we, the fam­ily, an­nounce the pass­ing of our mother, Theresa Agnes McPhee.

Born in Port Morien on Sept 22, 1925, she was the daugh­ter of the late James and Martha ( Cur­rie) Thomas.

Al­though she was al­ways proud to be from Port Morien, she left home to live and work in On­tario at an early age. While there, she met and mar­ried Peter E McPhee and be­gan the next ad­ven­ture, rais­ing her fam­ily. Like most Cape Bre­ton­ers they wan­dered back to the Is­land, spend­ing many years in Re­serve Mines but also in West­mount and later years, in Glace Bay nearer to her fam­ily. She made solid friend­ships wher­ever she called home.

Mom ( Theresa) was pre­de­ceased by her hus­band, Peter Em­manuel McPhee; two sons, Man­nie and Jimmy; daugh­terin-law, Mar­lene and son-in-law, An­drew Petrie.

She came from a large Morien fam­ily in­clud­ing her sis­ters, Mar­garet (John) MacDon­ald, Eileen (Ter­rance) Near­ing; brothers, John (Len) Thomas, Vin­cent ( Ger­tie) Thomas, Charles (Is­abel) Thomas, Joseph (El­iz­a­beth) Thomas, Leo (Lucy) Thomas, Henry (Pa­tri­cia) Thomas, Bernard (Mel) Thomas, and Michael Thomas.

She is sur­vived by her daugh­ter, Theresa Char­lene Petrie, Glace Bay; sons, Danny (Nancy) McPhee, Glace Bay, Bernard (Jan­ice) McPhee, Port Morien, Paul McPhee, Re­serve Mines, Neil (Kim) McPhee, On­tario, John McPhee, Re­serve Mines. Her brother, Bernard; sis­tersin- law, Lucy and El­iz­a­beth; daugh­ters- in- law, Lor­raine Pow­ers, Ange McPhee, Sylvia Steele and so many more who came to think of her as a friend and mother. To many grand­chil­dren, great-grand­chil­dren, and great-great-grand­chil­dren she was Nana and will al­ways be loved and missed by all.

As we make our jour­ney through life, we all leave be­hind im­pres­sions. Mom will be re­mem­bered as a strong and lov­ing mother, whose door was al­ways open to any­body who stepped through it.

Where there was al­ways room at the ta­ble and your wel­come was never doubted. As her life changed with time, her sharp wit and sense of hu­mour never failed her. She never failed to make us smile and in this, she will be re­mem­bered.

There will be no vis­i­ta­tion at this time and a cel­e­bra­tion of her life will oc­cur at a later date yet to be de­ter­mined.
