Theresa D.'s Story
Theresa D. (Jean) “Terry” Pellerin, 91, of Methuen, formerly of Pelham, died Wednesday, May 3 at Cedar View Rehabilitation and Health Care Center with her loving family by her side. She was the beloved wife of 52 years of the late Paul H. Pellerin, who died September 12, 2000. Born in Lawrence, Mass., 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, N.H.; 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.
