Theresa Marie Dalton

October 30, 1951 - May 25, 2021

|

Sydney

We, the family of Theresa Marie Dalton, regret to announce her passing on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, at Celtic Court, Sydney.
Born October 30, 1951, in Sydney, she was the daughter of the late Michael and Catherine (White) Dalton.
Theresa was the youngest child of Michael and Catherine Dalton, younger by seven years than her next sister, Gloria.  
Theresa had so many physical and medical issues to deal with that it is not surprising that her body gave out at the age of 69: high blood pressure, thyroid issues, depression, osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Theresa had a caring and servant's heart and did what she could for those around her. When her sister, Hazel and brother, Frank left to start their families, Theresa stayed behind to care for her aging parents.  She nursed her mother during her battle with cancer.  Catherine lost that battle at the age of 67.  She then stayed and cared for her father, Michael until he passed away at the age of 79.    
Theresa eventually landed in Terrace Manor until her need to use a walker sent her to Celtic Court.  She felt at home there and enjoyed her interaction with the other residents and staff. She was accepted for who she was and continued to be blessed by their caring.
Theresa died quietly, peacefully and quickly after suffering a stroke.  She was surrounded by those who cared for her in Celtic Court Nursing Home in Sydney, Nova Scotia.  
Our gratitude goes to Doctor Steven MacDougall for his care of Theresa throughout the 30 years he was her primary caregiver.  For those who came through her life, lifted her spirits and helped her along the way, Thank you! If you were helped in any way by her servant's heart, you have been blessed and we thank you for blessing Theresa, in allowing her to help you.   To those who cared for Theresa at Celtic Court, you have our unending gratitude for making her welcome and treating her with respect and thoughtfulness.
“May you all be blessed”
