Teri, as she is known to most, prepared the following prior to her passing: "If you are reading this, I am not. I'm off somewhere unknown. I am the loving sister of Anne Dunn (Bill), Lyn Vale (Bob Donnait), Michael Vale (Carol) and Patrick Vale (Deb)and the loving Antee TC to Carla and her cherished children Kaitlyn, Brandon and Devon and to Peter and Laura and their children Karsen and newborn Nash and to Kyle and Julie and their children Ethan, Adam and Deekon and to Sarah Vale and her partner Rob Bannon and to Tanya Hill (John) and their son Justin and to Tara Goreing (Jeff Batista) and their son Dominik. I love all of my siblings equally and thank them immensely for the care and love they have given me. My parents Peter and Thelma Vale predeceased me a number of years ago. Throughout my life I enjoyed golf in the summer, some gardening in the summer and curling in the winter. It has been a pleasure being here with all of you, family and friends. And to whom I knew and met along the way I sleep with a clear conscience. To my favourite pets I love you."
Teri will be missed dearly by her family and friends forever. As Teri has requested, cremation has taken place and there will be no visitation.
A private family celebration will take place at a later date in Coalmont, British Columbia. Teri's family would like to sincerely thank the doctors, nurses, personal support workers and all the volunteers at Innisfree House for taking such wonderful care of her.
The family asks that everyone please, in lieu of flowers, make a generous donation to Innisfree House, 2075 Homer Watson Blvd., Kitchener, ON N2P 0E9.
