Obituary of Therese D. Laflamme
Therese (Dallaire) Laflamme, 95, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her loving family. With her passing the world lost a strong woman, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Family was her everything and she was cherished by them, affectionately calling her “Gamma” (Ga-Ma).
She was always quick to smile, say “I love you,” play piano, sing a song, make a surprising joke, and sip a
martini. She was a loyal friend, with many lifelong friends that became family. She was one-of-a-kind. You Are My Sunshine was her favorite song, but she was our sunshine.
Therese is survived by her loving children Andre (Anna) Laflamme of Hadley, Denis (Evelyn) Laflamme of Granby, MA, and Diane Laflamme of Los Altos, CA; her grandchildren, Evan & David, Brigette & Kristie, and Alexander; her great-grandchildren, Colin, Cameron, Andrew, Phoebe, and Paige; her brother Yvon Dallaire of Quebec; as well as many extended family members and friends. In addition to her parents,
Therese was predeceased by her husband, Vincent Laflamme, in 1994.
