Theresa and Charlie fell in love and were married on October 4, 1947. During their marriage, they would travel around the country and as far away as Germany to visit family. Any family gathering was an opportunity to cook her popular dynamite sauce or apple, lemon meringue and tourtière pies. And who can forget the homemade donuts! Meals were often followed by card games, which she really enjoyed. When her children had families of their own, she would travel any distance to participate in their many birthdays, graduations and weddings. She was affectionately known to her grandchildren as Mémé, Nana and Grammy. Theresa’s faith was an important part of her life. She was a member of the Saint Francis, Sacred Heart and Corpus Christi (Notre Dame) parishes while living in Waterville and attended services regularly. There will be a Mass of Christian Burial celebrated at Notre Dame Catholic Church, 112 Silver Street, Waterville on March 22, 2019 at 11:00AM.
