Obituary - Teresa Dunn

Teresa Dunn

1954 - 2020

Cook Southland Funeral Chapel - Dunn(2020)

August 4, 1954 ~ January 15, 2020

It is with heartfelt sadness and the joy for a life that we announce the passing of Teresa Coppock Dunn. Her memory will be forever cherished by her two daughters, Victoria and Claire Dunn. Teresa spent her life doing what she loved; travelling, riding horses, looking after her dogs…. and of course her grand-dogs. She had the privilege of visiting many beautiful places around the world. Teresa spent the majority of her life in England, South Africa and Canada. However, a real holiday for her included a proper cappuccino on the beach. Teresa enjoyed working in the garden and in the summer cutting the grass on her tractor, her home was her little oasis on earth. She was always a joy to be around and such a beautiful soul. Her absence will forever be felt in our hearts. Teresa’s Celebration of Life will be held at the Holiday Inn Express, 9 Strachan Bay S.E., Medicine Hat, on January 22, 2020. Please join us to celebrate Teresa Dunn and to say good-bye between 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. There will be a formal ceremony beginning at 4:00 p.m.

“Of all the gifts that life has to offer, a loving Mother is the greatest of them all.”

If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made in Teresa’s name directly to the Canadian Diabetes Association, #220, 6223 - 2 Street S.E., Calgary, Alberta T2H 2P5.

    We are so sorry to hear about the loss of your lovely mom. We were neighbours and would often share a quick phone call or a friendly wave when passing on the road. Our sincere condolences.

    While I only had the pleasure of knowing Tess for a few months, she was an incessant flirt, quick with a laugh and a cheeky comment and had a larger than life presence. She will be missed and remembered.

    We were so sorry to hear of Tessa's passing. She was truly a great lady with a big heart and not afraid of hard work! We loved having her as our neighbor when we lived on the acreage across the road. Hoping that knowing she will always be fondly remembered by so many will bring you comfort.
    Sincerely Des & Pat Grant
