Loving mother of her three children, Joanne Prud’Homme (Denis Prud’Homme), Dwight Sigouin (Linda Sunderland) and Christine Sigouin (Robert Cumming). Cherished grandmother of Jessica Szelid (Andy Szelid), Melissa Sigouin (Jeff Dubois) and Julie Fondonella (Danny Fondonella) and dear great-grandmother of Jakob, Cameron, Preston, Cole, Bodhi and Grace whom she loved very much.

Born in Embrun, Ontario, Theresa worked in the Audit Branch of the Public Service Commission where she retired in 1991.
Theresa dedicated her life to being a wonderful wife, mother, grand mother and great grand-mother. She was a passionate gardener and a culinary expert. Although she suffered in pain for the past several years, she always filled her home with warmth and kindness and would love to reminisce about her family with her husband by her side.
Theresa will be dearly missed by many nieces, nephews and cherished lifelong friends.
The family wishes to thank Dr. Lise Beaubien who was her family medicine physician for many years, Dr. Natalia Crosby, the Bytown Palliative Medicine Group for their compassion throughout her end-of-life care, all the nurses from Bayshore Healthcare and Carefor Health & Community Services. A special thank you to Jamila of Saint Elizabeth Health who was her personal caregiver for the past several years.
Invited family and friends are asked to gather at St-Jacques Church in Embrun on Saturday, May 6, 2023 from 10:00 a.m. until time of Service which will begin at 11:00 a.m.
