SHARP, Teresa (nee HURLEY)  -  It is with great sadness we announce that Teresa Sharp passed away peacefully at home of natural causes at the age of 94.


Teresa was surrounded by her loving children, Michael, Carol, Diane, and David.


Devoted wife of the late Geoffrey Sharp (1929-1991) for whom Teresa spent many years caring for him through his illnesses. Teresa was reunited with her husband on what would have been his 94th birthday.


Born at the family farm, Holly Hill, Glengarriff, Co. Cork, Ireland to the late Jack and Annie Hurley (nee Shanahan), Teresa was the last surviving and youngest of their eleven children.


Teresa immigrated to Lincoln, England in 1951 where she met her future husband while travelling on the bus to work, and Geoffrey was with the Royal Air Force.


They married on July 30, 1956 at St. Hugh's Catholic Church, Lincoln.


In 1957, after the birth of their first child, they immigrated to Toronto, Ontario, Canada, where their two daughters were born.


In 1962, the family settled in the small town of Aurora, Ontario, where their fourth child arrived two years later. Their children are forever grateful for the happy childhood they provided.


She loved road trips and international travel. A visit to the Holy Land was especially meaningful.


Teresa was the cherished and proud Nan of Emma (Erick), Geoffrey and Abbey. She will be deeply missed by her grandchildren and David's wife, Stephanie. She will be missed and remembered affectionately by her extensive family in Ireland, England, and the U.S.


Remembered fondly by neighbours, past and present, having spent over six decades in her beloved same home.


Special thanks to Dr. Yasmine Kelton, Cathy, Mary, Terry, Hyun, who provided excellent care and support to Teresa in recent years. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in her memory to one of the following charities: Abbey Cat Adoptions Diabetes Canada


Visitation will be held at Thompson Funeral Home, 530 Industrial Parkway S. Aurora, on Friday, September 15th from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. A Funeral Mass will be held at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church, Aurora, on Saturday, September 16th at 11 a.m. with a reception to follow at the Funeral Home. Teresa will rest with her loving husband Geoffrey in the Abbey, Bantry, County Cork, Ireland.
