Theresa Louise (Gauthier) Raymond of Sandwich, MA passed peacefully February 10, 2021. She was born on November 29, 1927, in Worcester, MA. She was an only child, to the late Walter and Alice (Martineau) Gauthier. They moved to New Bedford, MA in 1933. Terry graduated with a BSN in 1950 and worked in New Bedford at St. Luke’s Hospital. With love, compassion and empathy she cared for premature babies in the Nursery Ward until she began her own family. Terry married the love of her life, Lloyd William Raymond on September 13, 1952.

The family moved to Sagamore Beach in Bourne, MA, where Terry lovingly raised her five ‘perfect’ boys. Terry had a profound faith in God and was an active member of Corpus Christi Parish. Her weekly Mass attendance was of the utmost importance to her. After Lloyd’s retirement in 1984 they enjoyed ‘game nights’ with their many friends, traveling, baking and cooking, and spending relaxing moments between chores with ‘her Lloyd’ in the yard on their wooden swing. She and Lloyd were involved with the Bourne Senior Center, where they volunteered their time and her wonderful baked goods. Terry along with her husband happily returned to Sandwich in 2000.

Terry’s whole heart was her family, selflessly putting them first always. Growing up as an only child, she longed for a large family, which she was pleasantly blessed with. She loved being surrounded by her family and leaves behind wonderful memories of family gatherings filled with love, amazing food and an abundance of laughter. She was known as Mrs. Raymond, Theresa, Terry, Mom, Grandma, Grammy, and Mimi. She had a love of cooking, which was enjoyed and will be remembered by all who experienced it. Her baking skills were top notch, her apple pie and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies were family/friend favorites, which no one has ever been able to replicate. She was, in her children’s eyes, the longest dedicated fan of Days of Our Lives, which she enjoyed over lunch at 1 pm each weekday without fail. Terry had patience and kindness for all; she would pause any ‘chore’ when family or friend popped in, to have a cup of tea, great conversation and of course enjoy a fresh baked good.

Terry was the adored wife of Lloyd W. Raymond, who preceded her death in 2012. She was a devoted mother to Kenneth S. Raymond, who preceded her in death in 2015, Keith W. Raymond and wife Karen of Acushnet, MA, Karl D. Raymond, who preceded her in death in 2016 and widow Michelle of Bourne, MA, Kim Matthew Raymond of Sandwich, MA and Kevin L. Raymond and wife Natasha of Marlborough, CT. She was a loving grandmother to 12 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren. She will be deeply missed by all.

One memory I have of Mrs.Raymond is when I was in grammar school and thought to be playing in the yard with Kevin and we went in the house to showoff the muscle shells we had collected.Mrs.Raymond realized we had been at the canal her eyes got huge and she looked shocked.I still laugh to myself when I think about it.....Another memory is still in grammer school but a couple years older my busdriver ,Mrs.Raymond and my mum were all chatting in my mums kitchen and my busdriver said I was a brat...Mrs.Raymond snapped at her and stuck up for me like I was her own child😘...Another memory is of my old dog Roscoe ..he was crazy about Mrs.Raymond and he would lean on her and lay right on her feet when she came to visit Mum.I thought he was being a bother but she kept telling me to leave him alone she was so nice to him and he weighed over one hundred pounds....I know more memories will pop into my head but for now I will remember your teal eyes gorgeous smile and I will never eat a homemade cookie without thinking of you with love.
