Two sisters killed on the Victoria Day weekend near Charing Cross perished while trying to save another life; the life of a turtle, according to previously published reports.

Teresa Suliga and her sister Elizabeth Seremak were struck by a northbound vehicle on Charing Cross Road near Horton Line shortly after 7 p.m. on May 19.

The lives of the women, aged 66 and 68, could not be saved, despite the efforts of local emergency services personnel.

The two, according to their obituaries, were not just sisters but best friends.

They shared a common love of animals.

“Teresa was ‘enamoured with the world.’ She loved to experience new things, to travel and garden. Teresa’s greatest love was her family and taking care of animals,” Suliga’s obituary reads.

Elizabeth was known for her generous heart and helping spirit. She loved to spend time with her family and especially her treasured grandchildren. Elizabeth’s extended family and friends will miss her sense of humour and love of animals and nature,” Seremak’s obituary reads.

Suliga’s funeral took place on the weekend at Blessed Sacrament Church in Chatham. Seremak’s family will hold a private celebration at a later date.
