It is with great sadness that the family of Teresa Walsh announce her passing on Thursday, September 17, 2020, at St. Boniface Hospital, at the age of 85 years.
Her strong presence will be deeply missed by her children, Ann and Raymond Walsh, all of her family, as well as many friends.
Teresa was born on September 12, 1935, and raised in Cork County, Ireland. She was the youngest of seven siblings, Mom lived there until she married and moved to Sussex, England where she gave birth to Ann and Raymond. Teresa and family moved to Canada in 1965 and lived in Selkirk, MB, then settling in Winnipeg, MB a few years later.
Mom finished her schooling and took care of her kids the best she could. Instilling pride, morals and honour in everything she did. Teresa went on to work at the Red Cross and was there for over 25 years working in various positions and finishing as the Director of Emergency Services. Many people benefited from her work, whether it was a local person in need or people involved in a national emergency. After retirement, Teresa enjoyed a quiet life in her small senior's community.
Teresa will be greatly and sadly missed by all her family and friends. Her love, kindness, generosity and strength will be remembered always.
In keeping with her wishes cremation has taken place and no formal service will be held.
"We love you Mom,
safe travels on your journey home."

I knew Teresa as a warm and caring woman and I always enjoyed her company. It's been many years but I'm reminded of her every day when I have my tea, which I learned to love over many afternoon conversations with her. My deepest condolences to Ann and Ray. - Posted by: Julie Schwartz (friend) on: Oct 15, 2020
My Mom + Teresa met over 40 years ago. Teresa started me volunteering at Red Cross and playing Bingo when I was a teenager. Lots of wonderful memories of her and my Mom sitting around our kitchen table laughing and supporting each other. True friends! - Posted by: Gail Henderson Brown (Daughter of a dear friend, Betty) on: Sep 30, 2020
