On July 25, 2021 our mom, grandma, great grandma, sister, auntie, friend, and wife, Theresa Marois, left us to join the eternal embrace on the first official Feast Day for Grandparents.

Born into a beautiful family of 17 children, Theresa arrived on this earth November 16, 1941 in Viking AB to Gilbert and Frances Thompson. Fifty nine years ago, Theresa married George Marois, whom she affectionately called the King of her Heart. Together they built a family of 6 children, 32 grandchildren and 29 great grandchildren.

Theresa was a gentle, kind soul. She was a baker of bread and birthday cakes, grower of gardens, teacher of children, catechist, and a gift to us all. She will be missed.

Following the 7 pm mass at Our Lady of Mercy parish on Tuesday, August 3, there will be an all night prayer vigil. Friends and family are invited to stay, pray, remember, share, laugh, cry and celebrate the gift that Theresa was to us all.

Funeral will also be held at Our Lady of Mercy parish at 12 pm Wednesday, August 4, 2021. Burial will follow at Holy Cross cemetery.

A light luncheon will be served at Our Lady of Mercy after the burial.

  3. George and family; I was saddened to hear that Theresa had passed away, last Sunday. My memories of Theresa is she always had a smile on her face that could light up a room and only good things to say about anyone she met. It is with love I look back over the years when a young couple expecting their first child moved into the house on the corner behind us. It did not take long, soon they were good friends with the van Ooyens, celebrating special occasions at both homes and always celebrating George and Theresa’s new family addition. George, you and Theresa were always there for my parents! My mother was always looking forward to the annual camping trip to Jasper with you. Both of you shared so many good times as well as bad times. At this time there are no words that can comfort you on your loss of a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, just know that she was loved by The van Ooyen Family and she will be missed by us! I hope she is having a cup of coffee with my mom and dad! Lots of Luv and Hugs to All and our heartfelt sympathies and prayers to help you through your grief! Agnes, Norman Rollins and Family

  4. Her kind soul lives through her children, grand children and great grand children💕
    My memories of your mother are of kindness and overwhelming love of her family and her religion.
    I feel so privileged to have been invited into their home to celebrate meals and family!

  5. So sorry for your loss, we know Theresa will be greatly missed. She was a wonderful person with a big heart, who welcomed us into her home just as if we were family. Now the Lord will welcome her into his home.

  6. My Deepest Condolences to you and your family
