It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother and sister, Theresa Loretta 'Hubba' (Mills) Ryan, who passed peacefully while in care at the Victoria General Hospital.
Born and raised in Sydney Mines, she was the daughter of the late John and Maydell (Jessome) Mills.

She was a dedicated member of the St. Agnes Church Altar Society for 30 years, a Girl Guide leader, a Catholic Women’s League member at St. Thomas Aquinas Church, and a recreation volunteer at Melville Gardens. She enjoyed many trips around the world with Faye and Zondra.
