Theresa M. Cullen, 97, of Manchester, NH passed away peacefully Sunday, March 15, 2020 at St. Teresa's Nursing Home. Theresa was born August 16th, 1922 to Willard and Julia (Landry) Bartlett of Elliot, ME, one of seven children. She spent her early years on the farm. During WWII she worked at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, ME where she met her husband Jack. After the war ended, they were married and eventually settled in Manchester, NH. Together, they loved to travel in the US and abroad. Her favorite hobby was needlework, which was always displayed with pride on the walls of her home. She also made Christmas stockings for everyone in her family, which are treasured keepsakes displayed with pride each Christmas. Later in life Theresa worked locally in Manchester, both in retail and as a family child care provider. Theresa is predeceased by her parents, her beloved husband John P. Cullen, their son Leo Cullen, and their daughter Julie Cullen. She is survived by her children; Michael and his wife Debra Cullen of Southport NC, Brian and his wife Donna Cullen of Litchfield NH, and Kathleen and her husband Rick Neveu of Manchester NH. She also leaves nine grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren to cherish her memory. Services will be held for the family by McHugh Funeral Home on Friday, March 20 at 10am at Our Lady of the Cedars Melkite Church, 140 Mitchell St, Manchester, NH 03103. Following the service, Theresa will be laid to rest in St. Joseph's Cemetery, 276 Donald St, Manchester NH 03102. A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

I am so sorry to hear of this great loss. As many of you may know she and Jack were great and close friends of my parents, Ted and Doris Belcher. We were neighbors all while growing up! I remember Terry and Jack's kindness when my own Dad died. I saw her again at the Church's annual celebration which I never get the name of exactly right. Maranatha? a few years ago, with a few of youI I know that's not the correct spelling, but am sure u know what I mean!
I am not sure that I can get to the funeral home on Friday. Because of all the panic and frenzy going on, I have to work at that time when typically I would not. Can someone PLEASE let me know when the memorial Mass is scheduled? I will most likely be able to go. I REALLY want to see and hug all of you and enjoy reminiscing. My phone number is 603 714-8247
Thank you, may God bless Theresa and Jack and all of you!
Eternal life grant unto them oh Lord and let perpetual light shine upon them.
I love you!! Susan
