G RANVILLE – Theresa Pauquette passed away on Thursday, May 31, 2012, in Glens Falls Hospital.

Theresa was born on April 28, 1928, in Hampton, N.Y., the daughter of the late Ludrick and Florence (Romanofski) Zovistaski

Theresa was a loving wife and mother. Her family meant the world to her. She was very conscious about keeping in touch with the family. She made weekly calls checking up on them. Theresa and her late husband Leo’s home was often the center of family gatherings, for both sides of their families. In addition to her family gathering Theresa enjoyed “playing the ponies.” She loved horse racing, both flat and harness track. She would venture off to Saratoga for a fun-filled day with family and friends. Theresa was renowned for cooking for anyone in need of it, and sending Leo off to deliver the goods. She was a communicant of St. Mary’s Church in Granville. Theresa also spent many years counting the collection every Monday morning. Following this task she and her “Golden Girl” friends, who consisted of Betty Scarlotta, Bess Constantino, Kathy Tatko and Maize Morse, would head off for coffee at Scotties. Theresa had worked as a secretary for Paul McCormick, Esq.

Theresa was predeceased by her husband Leo on Dec. 23, 2011, and her son Daniel on Oct. 29, 2011.

Survivors are her son Raymond Pauquette and his wife Kim of Granville, her grandchildren, Jaime and Lou Pauquette, and her great-grandchildren, Kayla and Leah.
