Teresa Bonfada

February 23, 1932 - December 31, 2023

Teresa passed away peacefully on Sunday December 31,2023, at the age of 91. Predeceased by her husband Loris. Proud Mother of a very devoted and loving son Leonard and loving daughter Christina and Husband Craig. Nonna to Brandon and Michelle (Alex) and a proud "Nonna B" to her beautiful Great Grand Daughters, Alexis and Kamryn who constantly put a smile on her face. Teresa will be sadly missed by many friends and family.

Teresa was a strong woman who endured quite a hard and challenging life. She was taken out of school at 13 years old to go to work to help support her family. She married Loris and soon after became a widow at age 35. She was left with 2 small children and aging parents and all the responsibilities. She managed to pull through the hardest of situations and did whatever was necessary to raise her family. Through many medical issues during her last 10 years, she always accepted and dealt with her setbacks with dignity and was an inspiration to all of us.

Thank you to the Palliative Care unit at St. Joseph’s Health Centre for making her final days as comfortable as possible.
