Obituary for Therese C Vezina (Guilmette)

Therese C (Guilmette) Vezina, 82, passed away on Tuesday, July 9, 2019, at home surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Berlin, New Hampshire on Oct. 4, 1936, the daughter of the late Elzear and Marie Anna (Tousignant) Guilmette. Therese grew up in a large family of twelve children, six boys and six girls.

Therese found her calling as a nurse and enjoyed her eighteen years as a school nurse in the Enfield School System. She retired in 1995 and had many hobbies including baking, gardening and spending time with her grandchildren. However, her true vocation and joy in life was to help others in need of comfort and care. Therese will be deeply missed by her family and friends, and all who knew her.

She is survived by her high school sweetheart and loving husband of 61 years, Leo Vezina, whom she married on Sept. 1, 1958; three loving daughters, Susan Drinkwater and her husband Bob of Columbia, S.C., Helen Fogarty and her husband Tim of Andover, Conn., and Michele Stephenson and her husband Chris of Boston, Mass.; seven grandchildren, Paige and her husband Chris, Kate and her husband Graham, John, Tim, Madeline, Thomas and Daniel; one great grandchild, Noah; one brother, Lucien Guilmette and his wife Louise of Concord, N.H.; two sisters, Florence Jutras of Enfield, Conn. and Jacqueline Morin of Berlin, N.H.; a sister-in-law, Jeanette Vezina of Berlin, N.H.; and many nieces, nephews and friends.

Her family will receive relatives and friends on Friday, July 12, 2019, from 4 to 7 p.m. at Somers Funeral Home, 354 Main St (route 190), Somers.
