She was born Feb. 23, 1926, Teri raised nine children with her first husband, Francis J. Lemieux Sr. (departed Oct. 3, 1997), and worked at United Nuclear Corporation in Montville. She spent her retirement years traveling the 49 continental United States, Canada, Europe, and South Africa (mostly on the back of second husband Paul's BMW motorcycle). Teri loved to crochet and blessed many of her loved ones with gorgeous blankets and cozy clothing. Teri's easy smile and optimistic outlook on each new day will be deeply missed. We feel comforted knowing that she lived, in her words, "a full and happy life."
Teri is predeceased by her parents, Albani and Fabiola Plante; brothers, Henry and Maurice Plante; sister, Jeanette Brunelle; daughter, Estelle "Myki" (Lemieux) Gundel; and niece, Collette Martino.
