Theresa D. “Terry” Pellerin

Loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and aunt

Theresa D. (Jean) “Terry” Pellerin, 91, of  Methuen, formerly of Pelham, died Wednesday, May 3rd at Cedar View Rehabilitation and Health Care Center with her loving family by her side. She was the beloved wife of 52 years to the late Paul H. Pellerin who died September 12, 2000.
Born in Lawrence, Massachusetts, June 26, 1925, a daughter of the late Jeannette and the late Archille (Theberge) Jean, she received her education at St. Anne’s Schools in Lawrence.
Among her many activities, Terry enjoyed country music, line dancing and watching television, especially Family Feud with Steve Harvey and Live with Kelly. Because she was known for her extremely proud French heritage, she had a vast collection of stuffed and ceramic frogs given to her over the years affectionately by her family and friends. She was also an active member of Crossroads Church in Pelham.
Terry is survived by a daughter Elaine J. Taylor of Pelham; a son Paul A. Pellerin of Pelham; a grandson Paul N. Pellerin and his wife Tricia of Pelham; a great-granddaughter Hannah Pellerin of Pelham; a sister Marcelle Lantagne and her husband Phil of Salem, NH; and several nieces and nephews who loved to visit the “Camp” every summer.
She was also sister of the late Loretta Beaudin, Eleanor Levesque, Russell Jean and Ronald Jean.

Our most sincere sympathies to your family. I could not have asked for a better 2nd Mom than Terry was to me all these years. He gentle smile, her warm welcoming ways are such a testimony to her generation a soft gentle way to love. Something we all could use more of in this life.
Elaine, Paul and family, our prayers are with you through this time.
She was a sweet lady.
Blessed my life many many times over.

I have so many fond memories of "Aunty" Terry. We used to have so much fun spending time with her and Paul at the camp. She was always there for my children's events and her loving caring ways with them will never be forgotten. I will miss her but when I think of her I will always smile.
God's blessings.
