Theresa Jeanne Stoddard


1931 - 2010 Obituary Condolences
January 29, 1931 - August 23, 2010
Terry Stoddard received her angel wings from God when she passed away in her home on Monday. She was surrounded by her family and blessed with frequent visits from many, many friends in her final days with us. Born in Madawaska, Maine to Eric and Evelyn St. Amant, Terry was the oldest of six children. She moved to Redondo Beach, California in 1953 with her husband, Earlen "Chuck" Stoddard and raised six children. Searching for just the right Catholic church, she was rewarded to find St. Catherine Laboure in Torrance where she made hundreds of lifelong friends and touched the lives of many more. In addition to being a grammar school teacher at St. Catherine and a frequent lector during Mass, Terry taught Bible study, led the divorced/separated/widowed support group, was a Stephen minister, a Eucharistic minister for the sick, and helped coordinate the senior citizen's social group. She also volunteered for Readings for the Blind for many years. With such a life rich with activity, she was never without time for her children, Chuck, Dana (wife, Adrienne), Eric (wife, Kathy), Jon, Paula and David; as well as her grandchildren, Erica and Brianna. Services will be held at St. Catherine Laboure, 3846 Redondo Beach Boulevard on Friday, August 27 at 10:00 a.m. with a reception to follow in the church hall.
