Theresa P. Bennett, 66, of Plainville, passed away peacefully in the comfort of her home on Thursday, April 27, 2017. She is now reunited with her loving husband of 14 years, Ronald Bennett, who predeceased her in 2005, and her granddaughter, Isabella Teresa Vye.
Theresa was born on Sept. 20, 1950, in Lewiston, Maine, daughter to the late Robert and Aline (Dionne) Pinard. She was a longtime resident of Plainville who enjoyed nature, especially spending time in her garden and feeding the wildlife outside her home. She also enjoyed reading and cooking great meals for family and friends. Theresa had a realistic outlook on life and was one of the hardest working employees and person in general. Above all, as a woman who held family as the center of her world, Theresa loved spending quality time with them no matter the occasion, especially her grandchildren.
Theresa is survived by her son, Michael Vye and his wife, Dianne; her daughter, Jennifer Uliasz and her husband, David; her sister, Lorraine Mirrotto and her husband, Frank; her sister, Claudette Bernard; her brother, Jerry Pinard and his wife, Dawn; her grandchildren, Morgan Elliot, Natalia Vye, and Derek Vye; several nieces and nephews; her special friends, Aline Clouse, Arlene Anderson, and Rita Taylor; and her special church friend, Gisele. In addition, she leaves behind her furry pet grandchildren, JoJo, Pedro, and Gus.
