 THERIAULT, Auréa Rhéa
THERIAULT, Auréa Rhéa - 67, passed away in the VG Site, QEII, April 29, 2004, following a two year battle with cancer. Rhéa was born in Caraquet, N.B., the daughter of the late Louise and Henri Lanteigne. Loved and revered by her many students during her 18 years teaching in Costume Studies at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Rhéa was considered by them to be "every woman". There was nothing she could not do, and nothing she would not do for them. She was an accomplished seamstress, tailor and cutter who had skills possessed by few others. At Dalhousie, Rhéa taught textile history, costume construction, draping, dancewear and pattern drafting until her retirement in 2001. She was always there for her students and colleagues, providing unending encouragement and caring support whenever they needed it at all times of the day and night. Rhéa also worked on countless Hollywood films during the summer months throughout Nova Scotia, and had the uncanny ability to simply look at a design and put scissors to fabric, foregoing the pattern-making stage completely. Prior to her work at Dalhousie University, she had begun her teaching career at Isle Madame District High school in Arichat, Cape Breton, where she taught home economics for 17 years. Rhéa's personal life was no less interesting, and everyone who met her found her quick sense of humour and musical laugh to be infectious. She was a person of strong character and disarming charm, she possessed incredible wisdom and always had the courage of her convictions. In addition to her love of sewing, Rhéa had a passion for the outdoors, including gardening, hunting and fishing. Rhéa and her late husband "Terry" and her beloved dog Tasha were always traveling, exploring and enjoying life to its fullest. She is survived by her sons, Joel Bowen, Arichat, Cape Breton; Donald Bowen (Audrey), Eastern Passage; her aunt, Christine Blanchard, Caraquet, N.B.; goddaughter, Linda Cameron, Halifax; stepchildren, Stephen (Joanne) and Allen (Paula) Theriault, Halifax; Joanne (Dorion) MacMillan, Kentville; 10 grandchildren. She was predeceased by husband, Lubin "Terry" Theriault; brother, Abdon Lanteigne; stepfather, Leo Gallien. Cremation has taken place in Halifax Regional Crematorium. The funeral mass will be held in St. Agnes Catholic Church, 6903 Mumford Rd., Thursday, May 6, at 10 a.m., to be followed by a reception in the church hall, and burial in Gate of Heaven Cemetery, Lower Sackville. Donations may be made to Canadian Cancer Society.
