Obituary of Mary Theresa Daigle
Mary Theresa “Terry” Daigle, 89, beloved wife of the late Franklin A. Daigle passed away peacefully January 14, 2023, in Bangor surrounded by her loving family. She was born May 21, 1933, in North Troy, Vermont, the daughter of Maitland G. and Aimee R. (Grenier) Mason. Terry was employed as a secretary for St. Joseph Hospital and the University of Maine of Augusta in Bangor for many years when she wasn’t at home raising her children.
Terry grew up in northern Vermont and after high school graduation, she moved to Nashua, NH for employment. Terry was introduced to Frank on a blind date set up through a mutual friend and in less than 6 months they were married on July 11, 1953. While the courtship was short, their love was forever. After moving to several homes throughout New England, Frank and Terry spent most of their lives raising their four children in Brewer. For the past few years they lived at Dirigo Pines Retirement Community in Orono and recently Terry had moved to the Maine Veterans Home. She was a longtime communicant of St. Paul the Apostle Parish, St. Teresa’s Catholic Church in Brewer. Terry was a loving wife and mother, devote Catholic and fastidious housekeeper. She enjoyed helping at church with the Ladies of St. Anne Sodality, playing cards with her friends and spending time with her family. Terry relished the company of her many pets, both cats and dogs and never hesitated to stop to pat any dog that she encountered.
She was predeceased by her husband of 67 years. She is survived by her four children, Gary Daigle and his significant other Carol Inman of Monroe, ME; Daniel Daigle and his wife Michelle of Rutland, VT; Catherine Beahm and her husband Richard of Weare, NH; Robert Daigle and his wife Kerry of Hampden, ME; five grand-children Michael Daigle and his wife Elizabeth of Pittsford, VT; Shelbie Daigle of Meriden, CT; Zach Field of Rutland, VT; and Lindsey and Spencer Beahm of Weare, NH; as well as several nieces and nephews.
