Theresa Madeline Subity

SUBITY, Theresa

October 5 1927 to August 20, 2020
Theresa was married to Nick Subity (1998) for 53 years. Dearest Mom to Diane Illingworth, Wendy Subity,  Paula Subity,  John Subity and wife Pauline, and James Subity.  Grandma to Sarah Subity and Samantha Subity.   
She was the eldest and last surviving child of Arzene Laporte and Zella Laporte Rivard. Stepdaughter to the late George Rivard.  Dearest sister to late Irene (the late Jack Jenner), late Ulysse Laporte, late Doreen  (the late Al) Ewert, late Gary Laporte (Nancy),  the late Robert Rivard, the late Rene Rivard  (Lynda), the late Jeanette (the late Dominique) Guilbeault,  the late Helen (the late Alphonse) Labonte, Raymond and Doris Rivard, Roger and Pauline Rivard, Linda and John Upcott,  Pat and Dick Blain.  Aunt Terry to many nieces and nephews.  
Mom was the best example of what a good, caring person was.  Family, whether immediate or extended, was always important to her.  To her kids’ friends, she was always Ma Subity.   She was a fantastic cook, and all of us will remember holiday and birthday feasts. A past member and past president of Erie Shores Quilters Guild, we all admired her award winning quilts and wall hangings.   Many cherish those she made especially for us. We celebrate the amazing burst of artistic energy she enjoyed.  She will be remembered as an avid reader, and always enjoyed a good mystery.  Many librarians will recall the bag full of books she took from the library each week, and the long request lists.
