Teresa McCann October 5 1926December 28 2022

It is with deep sadness that the family of Teresa McCann (nee Hynes) announce her passing on December 28th, 2022 at the Health Science Centre, St. John’s at the age of 96 years.
Teresa leaves to mourn: her seven children: Mary, Ray (Marion), Arlene (Jim), Judy (Greg), Percy (Aicha), Ann (Theresa), and Michael (Polly); 21 grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; very special family friend Sheila Williams; and a large circle of family and friends including Alonzo James.
She was predeceased by: husband Peter; daughter Phyllis; sons: Peter and Glenn; parents: Hubert and Margaret (Johannah) Hynes; sister: Phyllis; brothers: Gus and Fintan; and stepfather Cliff Phinney.
Teresa loved to read and valued education. She was very proud of the educational achievements of her children. She followed the latest fashion and was an amazing seamstress designing clothing for her family and friends. Teresa was an amazing cook and a model to all her family on the benefits of healthy eating and living. She and Peter started skiing and swimming later in life. They were both featured on CBC TV’s “Here and Now”, skiing on the slopes of Marble Mountain. Teresa and Peter were strong, consistent supporters of their church and gave many volunteer hours for numerous and varied community projects.
Teresa was an avid gardener and always managed to maintain a beautiful flower garden even when challenged by space needs of the family business. She held a great respect for her Grandmother, Mary White, who passed on to her the value of hard work, determination and an abundance of skills. Teresa was an amazing driver and taught many of the religious sisters to drive. She often accompanied Peter on trips off the island to purchase and drive home a variety of buses and other machinery for the family business. In the early days, she drove her children to school during snowstorms in the old fashioned snowmobile.
Throughout her lifetime she remained devoted to her own education and keeping her mind sharp, Teresa was committed to learning French and was practicing daily up to her final day. She was a world traveler and had a great sense of adventure for trying new things including riding a camel. At the age of 93, Teresa boarded a plane in Deer Lake to go to Montreal to meet up with family for a trip to Morocco.
A very special thanks to the paramedics and staff at the Health Sciences Emergency and to the staff at Restorative Care in Corner Brook for their meaningful service. Also, a very special thank you to the staff and residents at Karwood Retirement Retreat in Paradise. Although Teresa’s stay was short, she spoke fondly of the loving and supportive staff and the new friends she was making. Thank you to Russell’s Funeral Home for their professionalism and care.
Visitation to take place on Sunday, January 8th from 2:00-4:00 and 7:00- 9:00 PM at Russell’s Funeral Home, 57 Prince Rupert Drive in Stephenville.
