Frances Eva Therrien, 88

April 28, 2014

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Frances Eva Therrien, 88, of 85 Eagle St., St. Joseph's Court, died Monday, April 28, 2014, at Sweet Brook Care Centers in Williamstown, where she had resided since August 2012 because of failing health.

Born in North Adams on May 30, 1925, daughter of Ernest Barber and Eva Josephine Willette Wilcox, she spent her early years on the Wilcox family farm in North Pownal, Vt. She attended local schools and graduated from the former Hoosick Falls (N.Y.) High School.

Mrs. Therrien worked as secretary, first in Hoosick Falls and later for more than 25 years in the executive offices of the former Sprague Electric Co. on Marshall Street.

For most of her life, she was an avid reader with a wide-ranging interest in the news.

She and her husband, Louis Francis Therrien of North Adams, a Marine Corps veteran recently returned from service during World War II, were married on Sept. 13, 1947. Mr. Therrien died Oct. 28, 1989.

They lived for a time in Williamstown and Pownal before purchasing a home in Williamstown in the 1950s, where they lived for more than 20 years. The couple later moved to Florida for several years before returning to live in North Adams. Following her husband's death, Mrs. Therrien lived at Mohawk Forest Apartments and then St. Joseph's Court.

She leaves her son, James Therrien of Pownal, and her daughter, Jean Rowland of Boynton Beach, Fla.

FUNERAL NOTICE — Calling hours for Mrs. Therrien will be Wednesday April 30, from 4 to 7 at Flynn & Dagnoli-Montagna Home for Funerals, Central Chapels, 74 Marshall St., North Adams. Burial will be in Southview Cemetery at the convenience of the family.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Friendship Center Food Pantry in care of the funeral home.
