It is with great sadness that the children of Teresa Frances Proude (nee McCormack) announce the passing of their cherished mother. Although Alzheimer's forced Teresa into a smaller world, she did not forget her children's faces. She was predeceased by her husband Carl Everett Proude. Left to mourn in the emptiness of her absence are her 7 children who were the light of Teresa's life. Mitch (Gail), Cheryl (Tom), Pat (Gary), Mel (Shelley), Carla (Mike), Shane and Heather (Jerry). She will be missed by her 12 grandchildren and their partners as well as her 14 great-grandchildren. Born in PEI, Teresa was the youngest girl and last remaining child in her family of 12 children. She has many nieces and nephews in PEI and the US whom she recalled with great fondness, especially Cathy, Betty and Doug. Teresa was a giving and hard working woman who loved her family well and who was much loved in return. The family is comforted in knowing that Teresa Proude knows who Teresa Proude is once again.
