THERESE MARIE (HACHEY) MOONEY
April 27, 1927 ~ July 15, 2022
Winchendon, MA – Therese Marie (Hachey) Mooney, 95 years of age, previously of Fitchburg, MA, passed away peacefully on July 15, 2022 with her family by her side.
She was born April 27, 1927 in Fitchburg, MA to Emmanuel and Euphemie (LeBlanc) Hachey. She attended both St. Joseph Elementary and St. Bernard Catholic High schools. She married her sweetheart, Joseph Daniel (Danny) Mooney, in 1949, and lovingly raised their family on Westminster Hill Road in Fitchburg. She cherished the years that she and Danny lived in Florida, returning to Fitchburg after his death in 1993. She loved music, reading, her Catholic faith and spending time with her siblings and children. Her loving gentle personality melted into the hearts of so many people who spent time with her. She freely shared her hugs and love with those around her.
Therese is survived by her children, Patricia and Gary Girouard of Fitzwilliam, NH, Michael Mooney of Port St. Lucie, FL, and Daniel Mooney of Gardner, MA. Her cherished grandchildren, Allison Priore and husband, Tom, of Jim Thorpe, PA; Clayton Girouard and wife, Erin, of Royalston, MA; and Kahlie Belanger, and husband, Michael, of Leominster, MA; and two step granddaughters, Colleen Jolley and husband Brandon, of Maine, and Jennifer Weier and husband, Mitch, of Minnesota. She has been blessed with 5 great grandchildren and 4 great step-grandchildren.
She also leaves her brothers, Roger Hachey and Joseph (Larry) Hachey and his wife, Irene, of Fitchburg. Nothing gave her more pleasure than their frequent visits, sharing stories of childhood adventures.
She is predeceased by her son, James Mooney, her sister, Irene Judge, and brothers, Leo Hachey and Raymond Hachey, and also her precious daughter in law, Andrea Mooney. And her lifelong friend, dear Helen Hachey, with whom they shared life and lots of laughter.
Nothing can compare to the wonderful home and family she had in her last 5 + years at Broadview Assisted Living. “It’s my Home” she always said with love. Staff members became her blessed family bringing her joy each and every day. She shared her love of music, singing along and tapping her feet, gently dancing while walking and bringing joy to those around her. She especially loved listening to Gary play his acoustic guitar for those special musical visits. She always had that beautiful smile, loved life, and lived it well.
She is greatly missed.
