Obituary

Theresa A. O'Toole, 68, of Northeast Philadelphia, passed away on Sunday, November 28th, 2021. She passed while holding the
hand of her beloved husband of 51 years. She was preceded in death by her mother Eleanor Hoy (Dowling) and Father William Hoy,
her brother William Hoy, her sister Marie Hoy, and her beloved dog, Toby.
In addition to her loving husband, Theresa is survived by her children, Michael O'Toole, Theresa Teti, Thomas O'Toole, Christopher
O'Toole, Daniel O'Toole, her grandchildren Nicholas and Alison, Sean and Ryan, TJ and Riley, and Conner and Topher, as well as
her great granddaughter Paisley, and another grandson on the way.
A transplant from California and the youngest of three, Theresa crossed the country at an early age to land in Philadelphia. A
fearless tomboy, her favorite pastime was playing stickball in the alleyways of Mayfair. She also helped her basketball team win the
city championship for St. Matt's and never let her children forget it. She went on to graduate from St. Hubert's High School after
meeting the love of her life. Then the journey to build a wonderful family began.
Family meant everything to Theresa as she was truly meant to be a mother. Her love and dedication to her family gave Theresa the
strength to raise four boys and one girl, which included two sets of twins. Her legacy will forever include the children and
grandchildren she raised, and the priority she gave to a loving, nurturing family life, above all else.
Relatives and friends are invited to Theresa's Life Celebration on Saturday, December 4th, 2021, from 10:00am to 12:00pm at John F. Givnish Funeral Home; 10975 Academy Rd. Philadelphia, PA 19154. A memorial will be celebrated at 12 Noon. Interment is private.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions be made to Shriners Hospital.
