Theresa M. (Raymond) Kurasinski, 87, died peacefully on Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2018, after a long illness. Her family came first in her thoughts and prayers, and she was surrounded by their love. Born in Fort Kent, Maine, she was a longtime resident of Newington, Conn., where she faithfully attended daily mass at St. John the Evangelist Church until her health declined. Terry was proud of her work at New Britain General Hospital where she provided solace to many during her 23 years on the Hospice Unit.

One joy of Terry's life was her marriage of 62 years to her devoted husband, Stanley Kurasienski. Even in illness, she was always with a smile and responded to the question, "How are you today," with the answer, "I'm Good.”

Terry was predeceased by eight brothers and sisters. She leaves three sisters, Simone Angelo, Trudy Boissonault and Lucy Madore. Her beloved children are, Michael Kurasinski and his wife, Elaine of Monson, Mass., and Victoria Kurasinski.

She also leaves two grandchildren, Bethany Mann, and her husband, Dylanand Lori Monikowski and her, husband John. They loved her dearly. She also leaves many nieces and nephews; and her pets, as a close second to her family. Terry lavished time and attention on her many pets over the years who have been patiently waiting over the rainbow for a joyous reunion.
