Obituary for Mrs. Theresa F. McCaffrey

October 27, 1927 - June 27, 2021
| Age 93


Theresa F. McCaffrey (nee Wunsch), of Philadelphia, passed away peacefully at home on June 27th 2021 at the age of 93. Theresa was the loving wife of the late Joseph T. McCaffrey for 43 years. She was the loving mother of Patricia "Patsy", Eileen Raytik (the late Nick), Kathy Barras (Ron), Mickey Mullin (Bill), and Tim McCaffrey. Theresa was the proud Nanny of 12 grandchildren; Carey Raytik (Paul), Kenny, Patrick Raytik, Amanda Raytik, Mary Kate Barras (Brian Berry), Matthew Mullin (Sydney Slater), Tori Mullin, Brighid Barras Jaskel (Jake), Claire Barras, Joseph McCaffrey, Colleen McCaffrey, and the late Amy Leigh Raytik. Theresa also leaves behind a loving legacy in her 6 great-grandchildren; Caragh Stock, Sylas Berry, Justus Berry, James, Henry, and Quinn Jaskel.

Nanny enjoyed a long, full, and joyous life, always "dressed to the nines." She loved socializing, a good party, shopping, QVC, "donating" to the casinos, dining out at every opportunity, grabbing a coffee anytime and anywhere, sweets of any kind, getting a nice tan at the beach, reading (hardcover books only), playing Pinochle and Poker (only if she won), and cheering on her favorite teams and players (none of whom are Philly based!) Most of all, Nanny loved her family, her friends, and her faith.
