Delorey, Theresa Cecilia, age 89, formerly of Tracadie, Antigonish County, passed away on September 17, 2022, in Milford Haven Home for Special Care, Guysborough.

Born in Natick, Massachusetts, she was a daughter of the late Joseph and Mabel (Nyland) Duncan.

Theresa was lady-like and kind-hearted yet strong and courageous.  She was wholly dedicated to her husband and family. She worked tirelessly to ensure they were well taken care of.  Her selflessness and compassion resounded.  The kitchen door was always open to extended family and friends.  She had bright blue eyes and a warm, welcoming smile.  She never hesitated to say, "I love you!"

She is survived by her children, Joseph (Janet), Tracadie; Michael (Ellie), East Tracadie; Christine (Rob), Dartmouth; Marilyn, Monastery; James, Tracadie; Peter (Linda), Pomquet; Gerald (Maryann), Ontario; Eric, Antigonish; Janice (Randy), Drumheller, AB; and Alan (Makara), St. Andrews; grandchildren, Mitchell, Hannah, Myron, Theresa, Sean, Melanie, Matthew, Elliott, Katrina, Emily, Gerry, Corey, Ashley, Khatteya, Arun, and Adam; several great-grandchildren; brothers-and-sisters-in-law, Mary (late Pat) Gaudreau, George (Rita) DeLorey, Lillian (late Charles) Brister, Kathleen (Peter) Schmitz, Nancy (Romeo) DiStefano, Florence DeLorey, and their families.

Predeceased by her husband, William; brother, Mike Duncan; brothers-in-laws, James, Buddy, Stanley (Yvette), and John (Viola) Delorey; sisters-in-law, Emma (Earl) Fraser, Isabelle (Archie) Burns, and their twin sisters in infancy.

Visitation will be held Friday in C.L. Curry Funeral Home, 135 College Street, Antigonish, from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9pm.  Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Monday at 3:30 pm in St. Peter’s Church, Tracadie, with Fr. John Barry presiding.  Burial in the parish cemetery.
