Posted: June 20th, 2016



Teresa (Teri) Day, wife of Ted Day (1924 – 2001), mother of Michael (Lauren), Linda (John); grandmother to Shannon (Joe) and Michelle; and great- grandmother to Joey, Amanda, Ian, Jaxen and Avery, passed away June 9, 2016 at the age of 85. She is also survived by one brother Joe (Anne) and numerous nieces and nephews. In addition to her beloved role as mother and housewife, Teri worked outside the home in a variety of roles. Early in her life, her attention to detail and beautiful penmanship served her well as a bookkeeper, however her favourite job was that of a telephone operator as she loved to talk to people. Teri also loved to dance and it was on a blind date to a dance that she met Ted, the love of her life. Fiercely independent, Teri lived life guided by her own compass. She enjoyed reading murder mysteries, a competitive game of crib and telling a good joke. Creative and gifted,Teri loved to quilt, crochet and knit, donating many baby quilts and hats to newborns and children fighting cancer. Honouring Teri’s wishes, there will be no funeral. Cremation has taken place. If friends and family would like, memorial donations can be made directly to the Lethbridge Humane Society at or STARS Air ambulance at
