Funeral Home until 12 Noon Tuesday. Theresa was born on August 30, 1946 in St.
John`s, Newfoundland, Canada to John and Anne Feehan. Theresa has lived in the
United States since her marriage many years ago to her husband, LaVern. She
became a naturalized citizen of the United States in May 1982. The heartbeat
of Theresa was the house that was ultimately called the Theresa`s House, not
a house where Theresa was to live, but a home which would shelter countless
young women who needed someone desperately to care. Theresa was a woman who
was known by the good that she did for others. She was benevolent and kind.
She was loved and cherished by those that knew her, so much so, that they wanted
to name this lasting mission after her. The caring spirit that Theresa exhibits
will hopefully linger in Theresa`s House, and will inspire those that work with
the women who live in it. Theresa has been a member of the Yale Church of Christ
for the past 20 years. Theresa was strong and faithful to her family, her friends
and the Lord. Theresa had been struggling with cancer ten years before her home
going. Her attitude, in the face of adversity, was positive and upbeat. Truly
these are the words echoed by those that labored with her, she was special and
rare... knowing her was a gift to be treasured. So, Theresa`s House will be
opened, and like the woman whose name it bears, it will serve and stand strong.
It will minister to the needy, withstand the adversity of the world, and bring
glory to our God who blesses it. Theresa was preceded in death by her parents,
John and Anne Feehan, one brother, Edmond Feehan. She is survived by her husband,
Loyal LaVern Boyd of the home; sons: Michael Boyd of Yale, Jody Boyd and wife,
Ginger of Yale, Ok.; brothers: Patrick Feehan and wife Maureen, Gerard Feehan,
John Feehan, all of St. John`s, Newfoundland, Canada; sisters: Bernice Sullivan
and husband John, Mary Decker and husband Harry, all of Mt. Pearl, Newfoundland,
Canada, Pauline Loftis and husband, John of Yale, Ok.; two special aunts and
an uncle: Alice Decker, husband Cecil and Theresa Paquette, all of St. John`s,
Newfoundland, Canada; 5 nieces, 8 nephews, 5 grandnieces, 3 grandnephews; other
relatives and friends. The family asks that those wishing to make donations
may do so to the Theresa House in Care of The Church of Christ, 822 East Detroit,
Yale, Oklahoma 74085.
