unknown - January 8, 2014
Theresa Delaney Khammar, 80, of Fairmount, passed away Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2014, at home. A lifetime resident of the Syracuse area, she was a 1951 graduate of Baldwinsville High School.
Theresa was a home day care provider for over 20 years and an Avon representative, which earned her the president's award. She most importantly loved being with her family and would never miss any event. She was a member of St. Elias Orthodox Church, rarely missing a Sunday service, the VFW Ladies' Auxiliary in Mattydale and American Legion in East Syracuse. She cherished dancing with her husband every Saturday night.
Theresa was predeceased by her husband of 57 years, Gabriel, in 2010; great-granddaughter, Sabrina Roze; and brothers, Harold, Richard, and Francis Delaney.
Surviving are her children, Rozanne (Craig) Garcia, Nick (Chris), Neil, John, and Thomas (Julia); sister, Betty (Steven) Braundel; brothers, Charles (Rose) Delaney and John (Margaret) Delaney; daughter-in-law, Patsi Moseley-Khammar; grandchildren, Shawn, Nick, Danielle, Robert, Ashley, Rachel, Amber, Connor and Collin; great-grandchildren, Dylan, Lillith, Alexandria, Austin, Jackson, Alina and Sophia; and all her nieces and nephews who had a special place in her heart.
A special thank you to niece, Cynthia Sheckler for always sharing a place in her heart.
Relatives and friends called from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 12 at the Buranich Funeral Home, 5431 W. Genesee St., Camillus.
Services were at 10 a.m. Monday, Jan. 13 in St. Elias Orthodox Church with The Very Rev. Elias Nasr and Deacon Nicholas Mahshie officiating. Theresa was laid to rest in Woodlawn Cemetery.
