Obituary for Theresa Ann McCoy

Theresa Ann (Boulay) McCoy affectionately known as Terry - November 12, 1920 – March 7, 2013, born in Belledune, New Brunswick and married Al McCoy from Stittsville. They moved to Sudbury after WW2 and soon settled in the INCO town of Lively. She was always a fun loving and caring person, full of energy till the end. She will be sadly missed by her children and their families, Sandra (Dennis), Bill, Linda (Chuc), Debbie (John) and Colleen (Joe). She has 10 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren who loved their great Granny dearly and many nieces and nephews. Her father, Horace lived to 106 years old and her sister Doris to 103 so there sure is longevity in her family. In fact, Terry and her family are involved in a Long-life study at the University of Boston.
She passed away peacefully at the Manitoulin Lodge on March 7, 2013 at the age of 92 with her loving daughter at her side. She is predeceased by her husband Al and her mother Albina and father Horace, her brothers Lionel, Horace, Alfred and Everett and sisters Doris, Sadie, Lea, Mary and Carmel. She will be sadly missed by her remaining sisters Pat, Bunny (Bernadette), Esther and Ann and sisters-in-law, Pat, Rose, Ena and Georgina. With all those aunts and uncles and 75 cousins you can imagine the excitement of a family reunion.
She moved to Gore Bay in 2002 and made fast friends with folks there especially at Millsite enjoying the parties and card games. Terry lived her whole life giving to others and adored her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She loved skating, dancing and bowling. She was an avid sports fan, never missing a Saturday night hockey game or a baseball game, especially if her Toronto teams were playing. She was an ace at bowling, winning many trophies over the years. She was also a card shark and her favourite game was bridge. An active member of her community, Terry was always involved in some activity or fundraiser and when she lived in PEI in her 60's and 70's, she was very active organizing activities and felt it quite an honour to receive Senior Citizen of the Year Award in 2000. Terry would say she had a very happy and productive life and always took the sorrows in her stride and savoured the many joys to their fullest. Above all, she loved her children – they meant the world to her. She was a tiny minute of a thing, but those who knew her appreciated and enjoyed her zest for life and her feisty spirit.
To respect her wishes there will not be a funeral but there will be a celebration of her life in August when all of her family will be able to attend. Donations in her memory can be given to The Manitoulin Lodge volunteer committee that she supported in her day and that so lovingly entertained her these last two years while at the Lodge or the Kidney Foundation.
Many thanks to Dr Wilson and the staff at the Manitoulin Lodge for their many acts of kindness and for the excellent care they gave Mom and to the lovely people of Gore Bay who were always so kind to Terry.
