1944 - 2020

With sad hearts we announce the passing of Teri, our Mom, Gramma, Gigi and friend, on April 7, 2020.
Mom died peacefully from complications of diabetes at Boundary Trails Health Centre with her son Les and daughter Capri by her side. With grateful hearts we acknowledge that her grandsons, Kyle (via phone), Bobby and Garrett could be with her prior to her passing and that Shari, her daughter-in-law, could also say Goodbye.
Born in Budapest, Hungary, on February 7, 1944, she came to Canada at the age of 12 with her mother and two brothers, Steve and Pete. They were fleeing from the Hungarian Revolution and were refugees in 1956. They settled in Victoria, BC, in 1957. She was the loving mother of Les (Shari) and Capri (Bob). She was the proud Gramma of Kyle (Carla), Bobby (Kaylee) and Garrett. She was also Gigi to Chloe, Eli, Jaxon and Grady (all of whom she loved to spoil). Predeceased by her loving partner Stanley Moroz in 2014; her mother Teresa Kovacs in 2012; and her beloved son-in-law Bob Meakin in 2018.
Mom worked at Malcolm Construction and later at INCO in Thompson for the duration of her working life. We are sure there are a great deal of tall tales that can be told of Mom's time in her many roles through the years.
She loved to cook and demonstrated her love much of the time through family dinners and pots of soup too numerous to count. We were fortunate to learn this craft and will keep the family well fed in her honour. She also loved to shop and loved shoes, any kind of shoes ... she did not discriminate. When off on a shopping trip, she would arrive home with numerous packages in hand and inevitably one or two boxes of shoes. She enjoyed reading a great deal and a game of cards or solitaire were never far away. She loved her friends and felt a sisterhood to many of them. Time spent with them and many luncheons were all cherished times for Mom. Gloria, Cathy, Julie, Sya, Grace, Elfrieda, Pat, Doris ... we will be in trouble for only naming a few.
Mom was generous, stubborn, dramatic and at times exasperating, but loved just the same. She will be missed and forever in our hearts.
In lieu of flowers or cards, a donation to Boundary Trails Health Centre Foundation or Pembina Valley Humane Society would be welcome.
Our family would like to thank Dr. Brian Duff, Joanne, Amber and the staff at Boundary Trails for their compassion and understanding in making a very difficult time a little easier. Thank you also to Brent Gouthro for your care of Mom through the years. We are blessed to have a health care unit that are second to none here in Morden.

Wiebe Funeral Home, Winkler
