Therese Plante Lemieux Hood

Therese Plante Lemieux Hood February 23, 1926 - April 6, 2013 Prescott, AZ - Therese Plante Lemieux Hood 87, born February 23, 1926, found eternal peace Saturday April 6, 2013, after a long and fruitful life. She passed peacefully at home in Prescott, Arizona with her husband, Paul, by her side. Teri raised nine children with her first husband, Francis J. Lemieux, Sr. (departed October 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, and niece Collette Martino. Teri is survived by many beloved relatives: her husband Paul Hood, sisters Helen Courtemanche, Estelle and Dolores Plante, and brother Robert Plante. In addition, she leaves her loving children: sons Francis, Michael, David, Joseph, Stephen and Kenneth Lemieux, and daughters Carole Hyde and Patricia Lewis. Teri is also survived by 13 grandchildren, 14 great-grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren, numerous cousins, nieces and nephews, and many good friends. A ‘Celebration of Life' memorial service for Teri will be held on May 19, 2013 from 1:00 to 4:00 P.M. at the William L. Mercier VFW Post, 5446 in Plainfield, CT 06374. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Teri's name to Hospice of Prescott, AZ.
