PAWTUCKET - Fontaine, Theresa M. (Jubinville) 90, of Pawtucket RI passed away on January 26, 2017 after a 3 month illness. She was the beloved wife of Roland A. Fontaine for 67 years. Theresa was the daughter of the late Raoul and Leonie (Laroche) Jubinville. She was born on May 31, 1926 in the home that her grandfather built in the early 1900's and lived there for over 90 years until her illness. She was a devout Catholic and a life-long parishioner of St. Cecilia Church. She was an inspiration to all. Theresa met her husband at St. Cecilia School and was later married in 1949. After graduating from St. Jean High School she worked in an office before she had her 5 children. After her children were raised she worked as a sales clerk at CWT for many years before retiring. She became a volunteer at Pawtucket Memorial Hospital and knitted newborn hats and crocheted baby blankets for patients. Theresa was devoted to her children and her greatest love and joy was spending time with her family. She loved to cook, bake, sew, knit, crochet, and was excellent at all her hobbies. Her love of reading began her interest in traveling all over the country. She loved visiting her dear friends in Port Orange FL. Her favorite expression was "Gee willikers." She leaves 3 sons: Dennis, Paul, Marc, all of Pawtucket, 2 daughters: Michele Kuffrey of FL, Monique DeRaimo of Foster, 4 grandchildren, several great grandchildren, 1 great-great grandchild, and several nieces and nephews. She is survived by her older sister Sr. Cecile Jubinville of Wrentham, MA, and was predeceased by her late brother Maurice Jubinville. Theresa was privately buried on January 30, 2017 at Notre Dame Cemetery in Pawtucket. A Catholic Celebration of Life Mass will be held at a later date.
