Tess is survived by her sisters Nancy and Bunny; and her children, Mike (Sandi), Kathy (Dave Stirling), Tim (Alanna), Tom, and KC (Carol). Her memory will be deeply cherished by her twelve grandchildren and by her twelve (and a half) great-grandchildren, as well as countless other members of her close extended family. She was predeceased by her daughter Paddy; her husband Peter; and her siblings, Mary, Joan, Monica, Chuck, and Mike. A Visitation was held at Andrews Community Funeral Centre in Brampton, ON on Thursday, February 21, 2013 with a Funeral Service at St. John Fisher Parish today, February 22, 2013.
