Teresa Holloran Ashe, 84, of Haverhill, the youngest child of Thomas and Mary Holloran, died peacefully on June 28 in North Andover, Mass. She was preceded in death by her husband, Everett Ashe.
Teresa is survived by her daughters and sons-in-law, Katherine and Jim Crouch of Santa Rosa, Calif. and Marie and Bill O’Mara of North Andover, and her grandson, Ross Barman, a graduate of Tufts University who is currently enrolled in medical school and was the “apple of Teresa’s eye”.
Teresa is an alumna of Saint James High School in Haverhill and Chandler Women’s Secretarial School, in Boston. Teresa and her husband, Everett raised their two daughters in Chelmsford. Teresa enjoyed her husband’s early retirement from Lockheed Martin by eating lobster rolls in Kennebunkport and wintering in Boca Raton, Fla. She was active in the “Catholic Daughters Society” and the Westford Tennis Club. She was an avid traveler and visited countries such as Germany, Turkey, Austria, Australia, Egypt, and of course, Ireland. Teresa was an accomplished runner who completed two and a half marathons with her husband Everett, and would regularly finish first in her age group in the annual Feaster Five Road Race.
Teresa’s daughters, their husbands, her grandson, Ross, and several nieces and nephews as well as her community of good friends and caring staff will sadly miss Teresa’s fun loving personality, her delicious apple pie, her zest for life and the dignity with which she handled her recent diagnosis.
