ALLENSTOWN- Mrs. Theresa (Bergevin) Letourneau, 87, of Allenstown, passed away on June 7, 2019 at the Concord Hospital after a period of declining health.
Born in Pembroke, Theresa was the daughter of the late Walter and RoseAlma (Dupont) Bergevin. She was raised and educated in Pembroke, was a graduate of Pembroke Academy Class of 1951 and organized many a class reunion. She remained an active community member for her entire life.
Prior to her retirement, she was employed by the State of New Hampshire Bureau of Public Health Nursing and then the Department of Vital Records for more than 35 years.
Theresa was a lifelong communicant of St. John the Baptist Church and helped to prepare the church bulletin for several years. Not many knew that she loved to play the piano as she was too modest to play for anyone. She was a member of the Ladies of Sainte Anne and the St. Therese Rosebush Society. In years past, she was always found by her husband’s side assisting with his many volunteer organizations.
A lot can be said about a person's interests and hobbies, but most importantly, she was the kindest, most honest, thoughtful and genuine person one could ever have had the privilege to know.
Theresa was predeceased by her beloved husband of 38 years, State Representative George E. Letourneau, her son, Paul E. Letourneau and siblings, Lionel, Gerald, Roland, Gaston, Robert, Paul, Roger and Yvette.
She is survived by her devoted daughter: Karen O'Connor and her husband Michael of Allenstown. She was the grandmother to Kaitlin, Shannon, Kathleen and Molly and the great grandmother to Ayden, Jayce and Colin. She is also survived by her siblings: Marie Ayles and her husband Butch of Pembroke, Victor Bergevin and his wife Anita Louise of Napa, CA and Jean Bergevin of Thomaston, GA. She is also survived by her sister-in-law, Pearl Bergevin of Huntington Beach, CA as well as many nieces and nephews.
A Calling Hour will be held on Friday, June 14th from 10 to 11 A.M. in St. John the Baptist Church in Allenstown followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 11 A.M. Burial will be in St. John the Baptist Cemetery in Allenstown. In lieu of flowers, donations in Theresa's memory may be sent to the charity of one's choice.
