Sending along deepest sympathy to the Lehman family on the death of Teresa. May your memories bring you healing and peace.— Leonard and Lois Schmidt, January 7, 2022
Our deepest sympathy to all of the Lehman clang. As all the previous condolences mention, she was a great lady and we have such fond memories of her, especially at Halloween time. Paul and I and Dan and Colleen spent many Halloween nights trick or treating with Fr Mike (before he was Fr) and Julie. I think we actually called it ‘trick or drinking’. And the many card games. So many memories! RIP Teresa.

Dear Mike and Family - Please accept my sincere condolence for the loss of your mother, Teresa. May God bless her and invite her to share in His promise of salvation and eternal life. Although I did not know her she has done great things, not the least of which is the gift of her children to a world in need of leadership and service. May she rest in peace.— Frank Piddisi, January 6, 2022

Dear Lehman Gang,
So many wonderful memories to share of times spent back at your home - the corn roasts were the best!! I remember baling round bales of hay - and your Dad and Glen made sure I was in the right field!! (I was driving Bob Logan's tractor). And when I was going to school in Ottawa your mom sent me the nicest letter - how did she know her letter was exactly what I needed. Sending lots of hugs to all of you - you are in my prayers.
Love - Betty, Mike and family.
Our sincere heartfelt sympathy on the passing of your loved one. I, Mary had the privledge of meeting her at Birmingham Lodge when several years ago, Mass was offered there and the Rosary. She had the most pleasant smile and enjoyed her cosy room with photos of family and religious saints and she would point out her son, the young Priest at that time. We extend our sympathy to Hope, who we had the pleasure of meeting when she was involved in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters of North Wellington. Just this past summer we met one of her sons at the Sacred Heart Cemetery when we were visiting the beautiful Groto. His name escapes my mind, however we will never forget how he toured us up to the big cross and told history of that Catholic Cemetery which was kept so well by many parishioners, especially Margaret Goetz. Treasure your happy memories and often talk of the life she and her husband led on the farm. Kenilworth Parish is special, in the non-Covid days, many a good time was had there and it was always so enlightening to attend Mass in that beautiful little Church. May her soul Rest in Peace, Sincerely, Bob and Mary McIntee, Mount Forest.— Bob and Mary McIntee, January 5, 2022

My sincere condolences to all of you in the Lehman family. I recall many stories shared of Teresa and Cyril as I was growing up and know that you all will share so many wonderful memories of your mom, grandmother, and great grandmother. I was glad that she shared her raisin pie recipe with me after I enjoyed eating a slice at one of the church Garden Parties! My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.

Rest Peacefully Teresa Bernice Lehman
Dear Lehman family . Our hearts and prayers go out to all of you at this sad time . Teresa was a great lady with a beautiful smile. Having grown up with all of you we feel like we knew her and Cyril well as we each spent a lot time at your house. It was always a fun place to visit! Then when we had our own family we moved across the road from them and spent many good years as neighbors. The Kenilworth community will miss one of our long standing members but am sure she is reunited and having a wonderful time with all the family and friends who have gone before her. Rest In Peace Teresa. Love Paul and Mary Lou— Paul & Mary Lou Bolen, January 5, 2022

Our sincere condolences in your loss of Teresa. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Teresa had a great sense of humour and did enjoy a good time. Wayne and I still remember the time she threw water on Mike Goetz at an event in the Damascus Hall. it was either Hope or Jerome’s birthday party and it was pretty funny.
She will be missed.
As you grieve, know we're remembering you and honouring the memory of Teresa. She was a wonderful woman. May your memories give you comfort, you and your families are now and will remain in our thoughts and prayers.
