Theresa's Story

EAST SANGERVILLE - Theresa Daughton, 74, died September 18, 2015 at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor. She was born in Waterville, September 23, 1940, daughter of Ephrem and Lottie (Roy) Cloutier. She was predeceased by her parents, and her first husband, Doran LaBree.

She is survived by her husband, Charles Daughton; her five children and their spouses, Angela and James Gordon of Randolph, Michael and Lisa LaBree of Corinna, Michelle LaBree, David LaBree and Tricia LaBree, all of Sangerville; eight grandchildren, Jennifer, Jessica, Kayla, Travis, Doran, Logan, Jessie May, and Haylee; two great-grandchildren, Hannah and Tanner; three brothers and sisters and their spouses, Rose and Ron Perreault, Jean Foster, and John and Jean Cloutier; and several nieces and nephews.

Theresa was married to her first husband, Doran, for 17 years before he passed away and for 23 years to Charles. She worked for many years at Pride Manufacturing in Guilford and received her Associates Degree in Substance Abuse Counseling in 1989.

Theresa was a strong and resourceful woman and it showed as she raised five school age children after her first husband passed away. Regardless of how busy she was, she always made time to attend her children's activities, whether it was a sporting event, band concert, or any other activity. She continued this even after her children had grown up and had children of their own, by attending various activities of her grandchildren and great grandchildren. Though she was very busy with her family, she still found time to volunteer at numerous facilities, including Mountain View Youth Center, St. Michael's in Bangor, and the churches that she attended.

Theresa enjoyed playing cards, knitting, crocheting, playing the slots, reading but mostly enjoyed spending time with her family. She never missed a wedding, birthday party or funeral of any relative and was always there to comfort someone.
