Theresa (Loughlin) Mertens, 73, of Bristol, passed away peacefully on November 22, 2020. Born on September 23, 1947 in Bristol, CT, she was a daughter of the late Frank and Eleanor (Coffey) Loughlin. Theresa is survived by her best friend and husband of 49 years, Raymond “Randy”, her daughter Maureen Mertens Hattersley of Stow, MA; son and daughter-in-law Jared and Robyn Mertens of Wells, ME; three grandchildren Megyn, Lauren, and Graeme; nine nieces and nephews and 13 great nieces and nephews all of whom she loved dearly. She leaves behind her beloved sister Julia Dauphinais of Bristol, CT and was predeceased by her sister Maureen Valentine. She also leaves behind two brothers-in-law Winfred Valentine of East Lyme, CT and Andrew Dauphinais of Burlington, CT; her sister-in-law and brother-in-law Lynn and Michael Bibbo of West Chester, PA; special cousins Anne Ancher, Ada Rossi and John Duquette of Bristol, CT and countless good friends whose lives she touched over many years. Theresa was an incredible wife, mom, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend to so many. Whether she was called Tessie, Grandma, Auntie Pretty or just Theresa, she was the glue that connected people and brought smiles to those in her circle. Theresa was the life of the party, always, and her sarcasm was second to none. She put others first, touched many people with her kindness, words of wisdom and always remembered the little things. She loved reading, craft projects, baking, decorating for all the holidays, going to Hawks Nest Beach every fall and spending time with family and friends. Theresa will be missed dearly but will be held in the hearts of many in Bristol and far beyond. The funeral for Theresa will be private and the burial and celebration of life will be held at the convenience of the family next year. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Bristol Hospital Foundation, P.O. Box 977, Bristol, CT 06011. In the memo field of your check, please designate the Beekley Center as the recipient of the donation.

I am a very old friend of Theresa I lived on Goodwin street growing up. We went to Patterson grammar school together, played together and she came on vacation with my family. But we got split up when I had to go to Eastern High School and she went to Central High School. I have always thought about her and am so sorry I waited so longer to try and contact her. Everyday life just got in the way. The last time I saw Theresa was at a reunion for our grammar school class. It was like old home week. I am so very sorry for your loss. She was the best always.

Mary Boyle Fortier - I am another member of the club who Theresa babysat for (probably every family on Federal Hill). We served on the St Joseph School Board together a number of years ago, when her children were finishing up there and mine were getting started there. Such a sincerely pleasant person. She will be missed.

We have so many fond memories of Tessie driving us to school, having shopping sprees for our birthdays, and lots of hugs! We love you!

Theresa was an integral part of the High Street neighborhood along with her sisters Julia and Maureen. The last time I visited, she greeted me with a smile, warmth and good cheer—so many years had gone by—yet she made me feel as though I had never left the neighborhood. While her sister Julia was my good friend during those teenage years, Theresa was always nearby. I can only imagine how much she will be missed by family. And yes, I too (like the Monahan girls) remember those games of Jacks and Parcheesi on the Loughlin front porch.
