Theresa (Terry) Claire was born to Canadian immigrants Daniel and Marie (Jutrus) Martel in Waterbury, Vermont, Feb. 17, 1930.
Early in life, she lived with her beloved grandparents on their farm in Waterbury. At age 11, she moved with her mother to Burlington, Vermont, where she spent her teen and early adult years. She recounted stories of World War II blackouts, meat rations, ice skating and barn dances. After high school, she went to work at the GE Plant in Burlington.
At 23, she met a young airman from the Ethan Allen Air Force Base named Carl D. Bundy. They were married six months later, and life as an Air Force wife began.
She loved the military life. Being in the military meant they moved frequently but saw much of the United States, and met many people who became lifelong friends.
When they weren't traveling to move to another station, they were traveling for vacations. Camping with their five children was often the vacation of choice.
In 1973, Carl retired from the then-Lowry Air Force Base, and they settled in Brighton and finished raising their children. Theresa spent most of her life caring for her family. She loved to have everyone over for all the holidays, birthdays or any time. Having her kids and grandkids at her house meant a perfect day.
Although she loved to dance, she also enjoyed hockey, reading, needlepoint and baking. Homemade dessert was always found at her home.
Survivors include Carl J. (Debbie) Bundy, of Littleton; Laurie Bundy, of Newbury, New Hampshire; Dawn Hessheimer (Bobby Nobles), Teal A. (Grant) Bundy-Rodriguez and Taye L. (Pete) Hernandez of Brighton; 10 grandchildren; amd seven great-grandchildren. Her husband; and a son, Dale, preceded her in death.
Private family services precede a 1 p.m. lunch for friends at the family home. Those events are Friday, Feb. 16.
