The death has occurred of Teresa Donnellan

The death has occurred of Teresa Donnellan, 14.10.1960 – 18.11.2021 (Melbourne, Australia and formerly Feakle, Co. Clare & Ordnance Survey Ireland, Phoenix Park Dublin where she worked for 10 years from 1978 to 1988 when she then emigrated to Australia). Teresa died peacefully in her sleep, on Thursday, 18th November 2021, aged 61 years.

She was not in any pain, and passed away peacefully, at home with Marshall Lanyon, her partner of 35 years. You had a caring personality, sparkling eyes, and a beautiful smile. Everyone took an instant liking to you. You welcomed me into your family in Ireland. You ensured our overseas holidays together always had visits to family and friends in Ireland. Your passing leaves an empty space in our lives but is also a celebration of a life well-lived. We did so much together over 35 years. We have so many happy memories created together. You were taken too soon, and I will continue to love you.

Rest in Peace

I am very lucky to have been your partner – Marshall Lanyon. Scott, John and Geraldine, Jack, Eliza and Shaun and Marshall’s other relatives and friends are also greatly saddened by Teresa’s passing. Beloved sister of Mary Power (Kilmallock, Co. Limerick), Jim (Luska Puckane, Co. Tipperary), Tina Garry (Ballynacally, Co. Clare), Padraig (Ballybrit, Co. Galway), Phil (Citywest, Dublin), Martin (Ballynacally, Co. Clare), Val (Feakle, Co. Clare), and Tony (Gothenburg , Sweden) who together with their partners, wives and husbands are all devastated by the loss of Teresa. Much loved Aunt of John & Caoimhe; Patrick, Philip, Julie & Rosie; David & Mark; Mathew; Eoghan, Eanna, Máire & Sorcha; Aishling, Aoibhinn, Muirne, Oisín & Fiachra; Nathan, Samuel, Áine, Elinor & Síle (11 nieces & 12 nephews). Great aunt of: Clodagh & Eoghan; Aoife, Cillian & Feidhlim; Roisin; Eabha; Isabel & Alex; Laoise & Tadhg; Thea (12 great nieces & great nephews). Widely loved friend of many both in Australia and in Ireland.

Our thanks to the Cabrini Malvern and Prahran Hospitals for the care they gave her. The Malvern Oncology Department including Dr Ben Brady and Dr Victoria Rayson and Dr Karen Taylor – for the Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy treatments they provided. This enabled us to have an extra year of a good life together. Also the Prahran Palliative care unit – for setting up her pain relief program, which enabled Teresa to spend her final two weeks at home, pain-free.

A Funeral Service for Teresa will be held at Le Pine Chapel, 339 Warrigal Rd., Burwood, Melbourne, Australia on Tuesday, the 30th of November, at 10 am Australian time (Monday, the 29th of November, 11 pm Irish time).
