Theresa (Fiander) Shepherd

March 24, 1951 - November 14, 2020

|

With saddened hearts we, the family, announce the passing of our loving and courageous sister, Theresa on Saturday, November 14, 2020, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney.

Born March 24, 1951, in North Sydney, Theresa was the daughter of the late Harold and Susan (Payne) Fiander.

Theresa loved dancing with her partner, Jim. She could often be found listening to music and enjoying time with friends on the Sydney Boardwalk. Theresa enjoyed and didn’t miss a family gathering or Sunday dinner at the Parks’. Although illness brought her out of the workforce at a young age, she continued to volunteer for many years in her community. This work was very important to her. Theresa loved to help and will be forever remembered for her generosity.

Theresa is survived by her partner, Jim Taylor; his son, Jamie; granddaughter, Chloe; siblings, James Fiander (Joan), Pictou County, Queenie Fiander (Lee), Truro, Bernie Fiander (Ramona), North Sydney, Sheila Fiander (Harold), North Sydney, Gordon Fiander (Lynn), Ontario, Joyce Fiander (Rick), Ontario and Paulette Haddad (Chris), Sydney, as well as many nieces and nephews who all loved her dearly.

Besides her parents, Theresa was predeceased by her infant daughter, Taciya and sister, Margaret.

We would like to thank the staff at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital for the excellent care Theresa received throughout the years. A special thank you to the Renal Clinic, ICU, Palliative Care and Mental Health Services. Also, many thanks to the staff at Maple Hill Manor who cared for her these past months. To Angela and Dorothy, we are grateful for your friendship with Theresa. You both were very special to her.

In keeping with Theresa’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life for family will take place at a later date.

Donations in memory of Theresa may be made to Loaves and Fishes, Sydney.

Words of comfort can be sent to the family atwww.sydneymemorialchapel.ca or e-mail sydneymemorialchapel@ns.symaptico.ca
