Her Presence Uplifting
Her Smile Energizing
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts and after a courageous battle with cancer, Theresa Janet Dugal (Grimes) passed away peacefully with family by her side on Sunday May 24, 2020. Beloved wife and soulmate to Randy Dugal, daughter of the late Lawrence (1997) and Alva (Brisson)(1984) Grimes, loving sister to Tom Grimes (Carol), Delores Michalczuk (Marty) and Mary Lou Berthiaume (late Pat 2018).

Fifty-four years ago, I fell in love with the most amazing woman, four years later, I married her. I want you to know how lucky I have felt to be her husband. Theresa started early in life surrounding herself with loving, positive people. In the early years helping her aunt and uncle at the farm. She looked forward to getting any enlightening professional opinions from her older brother Tom, who lives in Calgary with his wife Carol. Theresa worked for Robert Simpson Co. and operated her own gift shop, teaching ceramics and paper tole along with her sister Delores. This love of working drove her into the same profession as her sister Mary Lou. Thus Theresa became one of Windsor’s top accomplished, respected Realtors for over 40 years with WECAR (Windsor Essex County Association of Realtors) (WECREB), starting her most successful career at Century 21 Lorenzen Real Estate, and A.E. Lepage Real Estate, Theresa being an assertive fair-minded professional sales representative, dedicated to her brokerages, customers and clients while maintaining the highest ethical standards. With approximately 33 more award winning years as a sale representative with Re/Max Preferred Realty Ltd., where she acquired the highest honours as being awarded the most coveted “Life-time Achievement Award” along with the prestigious “Hall of Fame Award”, with her sister Delores as her diligent office administrator.
Theresa had a special place in her heart for sister – in-laws, brother- in-laws, cousins, nephews, and nieces, on both sides of the family with overflowing love and affection whenever they meet, they enjoyed many dress-up nights trying on Theresa’s hats in her vast fashionista collection.

Theresa has supported many charities throughout the years. Her ability to mingle with people and her adventurous nature influenced her to see the world with Randy and learn from new cultures with vacations to all the continents and special places around the globe, meeting and keeping in contact with
many new friends.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here Theresa and I certainly enjoyed many experiences. We loved to dance, winning many dance contests together over the years, she loved to be on the dance floor whenever there is music. The love of all her award-winning furry family members through the years raising Saluki dogs and other animals, they enjoyed many days in the peaceful zen garden serenity at their home on the lake in Kingsville, surrounded by nature. With a daily array of birds, migrating birds and butterflies. She even found time to enjoy many years of boating and canoeing with her Randy… and where she had a gift for socializing and a passion for gourmet cooking. Many times, a table of 10 plus for dinner parties with a formal setting and full menu, and without missing her Annual Christmas Dinner, with her four loving and dedicated friends Joanne & Roy and Theresa & Don, for over 20 years, where Theresa looked forward to sharing a laugh.

Theresa will be greatly missed, cherished and loved by many good friends, colleagues, and family, too many to mention.

Those whom we love go out of sight, but never out of mind. This classy lady has touched and inspired many in her lifetime.

Thank you to ALL and a special thanks to Nurse Charles, who were a part of her journey to this new eternal life of happiness, where she will bring lots of bling.
Love you forever and a day- Husband Randy and all the family and furry cuddly Gypsy.

Arrangements entrusted to Kendrick Funeral Home – Kingsville Celebration Centre. A celebration of Theresa’s wonderful life will take place when we can all gather safely.
If you so wish, in lieu of flowers donations in Theresa’s memory may be made to Transition to Betterness WEC Humane Society or Windsor - Essex Hospice.

FOR 50 YEARS I GAINED A 2nd SISTER.....Randy, with our love, now & forever, your sister Carole - Theresa is now our guardian angel to keep alive in us all what she valued most- hope, magic, dreams, & promises of bright new tomorrows. Her motto was perceived as " it's a wonderful life ". She would want us to carry the weight of her loss, carry on, and carry a tune. Predeceased by our parents John and Min Dugal and youngest brother Dean, she will for sure be joining Mom's Euchre Club and Theresa can once again have a blast with " Uncle Jack " and " Auntie Beth" Clark. She has left numerous fond memories for myself, your brother-in-law Terry, our children Erryn, Cindy, Todd and our grandchildren Austin, Ethan, Mackenzie, Mitchell, Sabrina and Eric.

So saddened to hear of Theresa"s passing. Sincere condolences to Randy and all her family. My twin sister and I went all through grade school with Theresa and she was one of our best friends. We spent a lot of time together after school at her house and ours. We lived just a couple streets away from each other. I remember her smile and energy and I'm not surprised of the amazing life she made for herself! My sister died of cancer 17 yrs ago and I'm sure they are reconnecting in heaven! RIP my dear friend. Noreen and Jeannine( St. Pierre)
