Theresa Mary (nee Dodd) McLeod was born in Sinnett, Sask., on December 27, 1925, the fifth child of William and Maude (nee LaLonde) Dodd. She attended the Loyola Public and the Loyola Continuation Schools in Sinnett and later studied to be a certified teacher through Normal School in Saskatoon. Theresa first started teaching in a rural school in Attica and later came to Clearview to begin teaching there and at this time she met Bryce in 1948. The couple married on October 17, 1949, and settled in the Spalding area. Their life was blessed by the lives of their six children and they farmed together until Bryce’s passing in 1975. Theresa moved from the farm to Watson and worked for eight years with the dietary staff of the Watson Union Hospital until her retirement. She became very involved in the New Horizons Club in Watson and was a member of the Daphne Willing Workers. Music was a great passion for Theresa, she sang for many years in the local choir and played both the guitar and the piano. Along with creating beautiful paintings and cheering on her “Blue Jays”, Theresa was an avid and accomplished card player, and of all the card games she loved to play, her favorite was bridge. But far and above everything else, Theresa found her true joy in spending time with her family and everyone will remember stopping by to share a visit, complete with treats, like ice-cream and candy.
