Glen Mills -Terry Lagassé passed away peacefully at home on December 2nd, surrounded by family. Born in Haverhill, Mass., in 1930, she was the daughter of Arthur and Madeline Doucette Langevin, of French-Canadian and Acadian heritage.

She is survived by her husband of sixty-six years and their five children, Paul G. “Jerry” (Willa), Stephen (Karen), Michael (Judy), Kevin (Nancy), and Michele (Derek Lewis) as well as her grandchildren and step-grandchildren and their children, especially her great-grandchild Avery, a source of joy and delight.
