DEMPSTER, Theresa - It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Theresa Dempster (nee Keeney) on July 21, 2018 in her 88th year. Theresa was born in Glasgow, Scotland and is predeceased by her husband William (Bill) Dempster. Predeceased by siblings Katherine McNee, May Owen, Eddie Keeney. Theresa will be sadly missed by her daughters, Catherine (Tony) of London, Carol of Tavistock and Lynda of Woodstock. Remembered by her grandchildren, Jim Miles, Dale Browncombe (Tara), Bill Meaney, Jennifer Meaney and Tyler Smith. Great grandmother to Madelyn Meaney of Edmonton. Theresa also has many nieces and nephews still in Canada and Scotland. Theresa has left behind the love and memories of some very special friends, Rosemary Kerr, Marie Labadie and lovingly Mia Ransford. Theresa passed away at Woodingford Lodge (Pinecrest), where she also worked for 25 yrs. Theresa enjoyed her days with many staff members that had become like a second family to her and her daughters. “Thank you” to the staff of Pinecrest and Woodingford Lodge does not seem to cover the extra care that they provided to Mum on her final days. A very special thank you to the PSW’s, RN’s, and RPN’s. Cremation has taken place, and a memorial gathering will be held on Saturday, July 28, 2018 from 2 – 4 pm at the Royal Canadian Legion Br# 55, 642 Dundas St. Woodstock. A private interment of ashes will take place at a later date. Arrangements have been entrusted to SMITH-LeROY FUNERAL HOME, 69 Wellington Street N. Woodstock. As an expression of sympathy, donations to the Alzheimer Society of Oxford would be gratefully acknowledged. Condolences may be sent at www.smithleroy.com
