Teresa Merner Obituary

Passed peacefully away at the Health Sciences Center on Monday, January 29th, 2024 in the presence of her nephew Randy and his wife Elaine, Teresa Mary Merner, age 95. 

Teresa was predeceased by her husband Basil, parents; John and Catherine Wade, brothers: William, Walter and Richard, sister Margaret, sisters-in-law; Betty Wade and Mary Wade, brothers-in-law; Michael Davis and Robert Downey and grandnephews; Davis Didham and Kyle Tremblett. 

Leaving to mourn with loving memories are her daughter Janet Merner, living in Oshawa, brothers; John and Raymond, sisters Anna Marie Davis, Mary Hearn (Tom) and Marion Bonia (Allen), sisters-in-law; Helen Wade and Dorothy Wade, as well as many cherished nieces, nephews and friends. 

Teresa took great comfort in her Christian faith, praying every day.  She is remembered as a kind and generous lady who was a friend to all. Teresa was most at home in the fields and barrens of St. Mary’s Bay where she fished, hunted and berry picked.  She always shared her annual bounty of berries with friends and family, delighting in their enjoyment of her hours of hard work.  Having completed her earthly chores, she has been called home for a well-deserved rest. 

The family extends special thanks to the staff at North Pond Personal Care Home, St. Clare’s, St. Patrick’s Mercy Home, and 4NB Health Sciences Center for the exceptional care Teresa received over the past years when she was no longer able to live independently. 

At Teresa’s request, cremation has taken place. The family will receive visitors at Dunphy’s Funeral Home, Holyrood. Visitation will take place on Saturday, February 3rd, 2024 from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. A celebration of Teresa’s Life will take place following the visitation at Dunphy’s Funeral Home Chapel with Father Ken Walsh officiating.

“For those unable to attend, the service will be livestreamed with the link available below under Teresa’s service information”

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
