It is with great sadness that the family of Theresa Wong announce her passing at Oliver Lodge, at the age of 86. She was the spark in our family that warmed all of our lives. Theresa was born in Batoche, Saskatchewan to Eugene and Julienne Letendre. The Letendre family was very large and she helped out around the homestead until she was 16 years old. She then ventured out on her own to pursue her hopes and dreams. She was already a proud mother of three when she met the love of her life Cyril Wong in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. They moved to Saskatoon and were married in 1965. Together with Cyril they built a strong family foundation, a warm loving home and a very successful business (Cyril’s Steak Inn). Terri worked hard to take care of her family and all of her extended family members (Cyril’s customers). Terri and Cyril spent their entire lives making people feel comfortable and happy. In her free time Terri loved to cook, bake, sew and travel. She really enjoyed spending time at the cabin at Emma Lake with family and friends. Spending time traveling to the USA and going to family reunions were also very special to her. Left to cherish her memory are her daughters Debbie Wright, Carol Kruger (Greg) and Brenda Janzen (Warren); grandchildren: Jeffrey Janzen (Tina), Michael Janzen (Bee), Kalen Wright, Murray Kruger (Natalie), Tara Evjen (Kyle) and Tanya Kruger (Khounthav); great grandchildren: Mason, Nham and Kingston Janzen, Silas Kruger; her siblings: Argie, Cecile, Don, Leo, Maurice, Clifford, Andrew and Diane as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Theresa was predeceased by her parents, her husband Cyril and son-in-law Gary Wright. She was also predeceased by her siblings Maxim, Maurice, Harry, Alice, Odias, Charlie, Clarice and Lorraine. A Celebration of Terri’s life will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 27, 2015 at Hillcrest Funeral Home (east on 8th St., first right past Briargate Rd). The family extends a sincere thank you to the staff at Oliver Lodge for their compassionate care of both Mom & Dad. In lieu of flowers, donations in Terri’s name may be made to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (1705 McKercher Dr, Saskatoon, SK S7H 5N6) Arrangements entrusted to Basil Forsberg.
