Therese M. Wentworth

WORCESTER - Therese M. (Hocker) Wentworth, 60, of Worcester, was stricken ill at home and died Friday, July 13, 2018.

Therese leaves her husband of 36 years, Mark R. Wentworth; her daughter Sarah O'Connell and her husband Kevin, two grandchildren, Kellan James and Everly Grace O'Connell, all of Worcester; two sisters, Kathleen Wyant and her husband Kevin of Lovingston, Va., and Rita Ann Hocker of Amesbury; and a nephew Cole Wyant. Therese also leaves behind her close relatives, Don, Lori and Michelle Wentworth, and Cheryl McGinty; close friends Peter and Margie Vasquez and their children Jared and Celena; as well as many nephews, nieces, and cousins.

Therese was born in Worcester, daughter of the late Rita (Hakenson) Hocker and James Hocker.

Therese was a graduate of South High School in Worcester. Later in life, Therese went back to college and earned an associate degree in Early Childhood Education from Becker College.

For the past 20 years, Therese had been a teacher and director in several Worcester area pre-school programs. She loved all her students and their families.

Therese enjoyed reading and loved hosting her family for the Holidays and other special occasions. But her greatest joy was her role as "Gaga" to her precious grandchildren.
