Terry L. Touchette, 49, of Stevens Brook Road, Duxbury, passed away in the comfort of her home and family on Sunday morning, January 27, 2013. Born in Morrisville on July 17, 1963, she was the daughter of the late Richard D. and Shirley (Colby) Touchette. On January 24, 2013, Terry married her partner of 13 years, Douglas A. Edwards, at their home in Duxbury.
Terry was a 1981 graduate of Harwood Union High School in Duxbury. While attending Harwood, Terry worked at the former Grand Union (now Shaw’s Supermarket) in Waitsfield and continued there following her graduation, becoming deli manager. For the past two years Terry has worked in food service at Harwood Union.
Terry’s family lovingly remembers her for her compassion and caring for animals, the importance of family, particularly her husband Doug, and the joy she felt spending time camping, being by the water and enjoying all of the outdoors.
Terry is loved and missed by her husband, Douglas Edwards of Duxbury; her siblings, Gloria Lowell of Berlin, Julie Warfel and her companion, William Gainey, of Barre, Kathy Touchette and her companion, Andy Baker, of Northfield, Chris Touchette of Waterbury and James Touchette and his wife, Sarah, of Waterbury Center; as well as nieces, nephews and extended family. Her favorite canine companion, “Stashia,” predeceased her.
A time of celebration and remembrance for Terry’s life will be held from the Waterbury American Legion, 16 Stowe Street, on February 6, 2013, at 11 a.m. with a reception to follow.
