WAKEFIELD — It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Theresa Diane McCauley, 47, who passed away on January 9, 2019. Theresa was a native of Wakefield, Massachusetts.

Theresa is survived by her fiancé Eric Valle, her mother Susan McCauley, her sons Ian and Nick, six aunts, five uncles and numerous cousins.

Theresa was an advocate for animals as well as for the homeless. She had a very humble lifestyle and made an impression on those who met her for her striking boldness and sweet, generous heart. She will be missed terribly by all who love her.

Memorial services will be private.
