Theresa Serroul

October 14, 1941 - October 7, 2021

|

North Sydney

We, the family of Theresa Gertrude Serroul, regret to announce her sudden passing on Thursday, October 7, 2021, at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital, Sydney.

Born October 14, 1941, in Mill Creek, she was one of 14children of the late Roderick and Florence (Gaskell) Beaton.

Mom entered the workforce at a young age, working at a restaurant called, The Coffee Pot, where she would meet the man she would spend 57 years of marriage with and raise five children.  

Theresa is survived by her daughters, Elaine, Sydney and Laura, North Sydney; sons, Louis, Calgary and Samuel and John, North Sydney; seven grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.

Besides her parents, Theresa was predeceased by her husband, Edwin William Serroul.

Mom left the workforce to raise her children while returning to work briefly at Leonard’s and H.B. Nickerson’s Fish plants and Charlies Restaurant in North Sydney.  Becoming profoundly deaf at a young age would cause her great difficulty throughout her life, but she loved to have a good laugh and could understand physical comedies including, Three’s Company and Jackie Chan movies.

Mom loved to bake and cook and the memory of coming home from school at lunch to the smell of her homemade bread and fresh cinnamon rolls is something we will cherish for years, as well as the memory of gathering as family for corned beef and cabbage won’t be forgotten.  That was how she displayed her love for us.

She was the craftiest lady in town, at one point making wedding bouquets out of ribbon, crocheting, embroidery and so much more.

She loved dogs with her entire heart and soul.  Her dogs, Molly and Sally will miss her tremendously.  She shared a special bond with her granddaughter, Tessa, who figured out a way to communicate with her.  She loved the Montreal Canadians and regularly watched Hockey Night in Canada. What she loved most about hockey was the cold beer she would enjoy as she cheered her on her team. Of course, she didn’t need to be watching Hockey to enjoy a cold one.  

Three years ago the VON entered mom’s life.  She viewed them as her friends and loved to see them coming in the morning.  They laughed with her and made her feel as special as she was.  We would like to extend our gratitude to the VON for the exemplary care of our mother, along with the Dr. Kirkpatrick and Dr. Wawer who were attentive to our mother and her needs.

To the little spitfire and the sassiest lady in town, The Point Aconi Rat, we bid you farewell.  

Cremation has taken place. A private graveside service will be held in Lakeside Cemetery, North Sydney at a later date.
