Teresa Dolan obituary

Teresa Dolan (1949 - 2014)

  • "My condolences to the family and Teresa will be missed by..."

Teresa Dolan passed away peacefully September 26th surrounded by her daughters and close friends. She demonstrated amazing courage, strength, and positivity throughout her illness. She was born in Navan, Ireland July 8, 1949. Her & her husband, Raymond Dolan, came to Houston in 1977. They were quickly embraced by the Houston Irish community and soon called Texas home. 

They had two loving daughters, Jessica and Caitriona (with later "adoptions" of Sarah, Lindsay, & many more). Teresa was a caring and vibrant woman who dedicated her life to helping others. A RN for over 40 years, she spent most of her career at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. She will be remembered always for her unwavering strength, kind heart, amazing smile, and infectious laugh. No one was a stranger to Teresa. She is survived by her two daughters, Jessica & Caitriona, siblings: Jim, Paddy, Ailish, Tom, Mary, Josephine, Donal, Bernadette, Peter, Martha, Louise, Michael, & Sean, and extended adopted family. Teresa is predeceased by her parents, James & Katherine McKeever, sister Kitty Mongey, and brother Joseph McKeever. A celebration of Teresa Dolan's life will be held at St. Thomas More Catholic Church. The family asks that you honor Teresa by wearing her favorite color, purple. Full service details soon available through Miller Funeral Services. 
The Dolan family would like to say thank you to the amazing staff at St. Luke's Hospital. We would also like to thank our adopted Houston family. Ma would be so happy to know that her daughters are being so well cared for. 
In lieu of flowers, we ask that those who can donate blood please do so. Also consider organ donation, so that we can keep giving the gift of life.
