Clara Alice Terreault, age 77 of Ocala, Florida passed away peacefully on Monday April 13th, 2020. Clara was born and raised in Lawrence Massachusetts. She was born the daughter of the late Arthur Sr. and Rita (Caron) Brown on August 16, 1942. Clara attended and graduated from St. Patrick’s School in Lawrence.
She married the love of her life John L. Terreault Sr. on August 19, 1961 at St. Patrick’s Church in Lawrence. John was serving in the United states Navy and they remained happily married for 58 wonderful years. She worked for Wang Laboratories, Methuen, Ma as a Purchasing Administrator and for New England Neurological in North Andover, Ma as a Medical Records Administrator.
Together they raised three loving children who love her dearly Karen M. Ray of Ocala, FL with husband Calvin Ray, Donna J. Frazier of Windham, NH with husband Loyd Frazier, and John L Terreault Jr. of Salem NH with wife Patricia.
Clara loved, adored and cherished her eight beautiful grandchildren and two great grandchildren along with so many wonderful nieces, nephews and cousins.
She is also survived by her loving siblings, sister Rita Doyle, brother Arthur Brown Jr., brother Michael Brown and brother John Brown Sr.
She enjoyed and hosted countless family gatherings throughout the years. She enjoyed cooking, camping, traveling, playing bingo, cards with family and trips to the casinos. Her loving and giving heart was always a continued source of strength, guidance, kindness, courage, and compassion for all who knew and loved her. She remains an absolute blessing of love to her family, community and friends near and far. She will be remembered in love by her family and friends. She will remain forever in our hearts because her family meant everything to her. Proverbs 31:28-29: “Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: ‘Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.”
A private celebration of life gathering will be held later by her immediate family. There will be no calling hours.
Your Always Loving Husband.
I love you through Eternity.
Ken and Vikki Gatke
John Sr. , Karen, Donna, and families- our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Even though it has been a long time- great people are never forgotten or replaced.
Love Micki, Tony, and family.
Your sad but always loving husband!!!!
I’ve known you to be always kind, compassionate, loving, and giving.
It is with great sadness to me, and everyone who knew you that you had to pass on, but I and others are also grateful that you are now in a safe, loving place, without pain, and able to look to us with even greater knowledge and care.
I imagine you have been greeted by everyone you loved that have gone on before you.
Have great fun on your next adventure. ❤️
Our song plays in my head a lot lately and it will help get me through sad days without you. Calvin loves you and we send hugs to you in heaven.
"Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Cousin, and friend to everyone."
Thank you for loving me, caring for me, teaching me, talking with me, guiding me and always understanding everything.
I pray in Jesus name that God blesses you beyond words in His kingdom. ALIVE & WELL for all eternity...that's our hope and promise from God. Thank you Jesus! Eternity is for those who believe in and accept Jesus Christ as savior and I pray that those who do not know Him yet, take notice that this life that we know will end one day. There is a 'real life' after death in heaven if you believe and recieve Jesus as Lord. Mom believed... and knowing that she did makes my separation from her only temporary.
I love you Mom, always in my heart,
Karen Marie xo
Please watch over me and protect me. I love you beyond human comprehension.
