ST. ALBANS – Therese R. Bryer entered this world in Barre, Vt., the daughter of Alphonse and Merelda (Allaire) Gaboriault on Oct. 8, 1928. She was educated in Montpelier, where she met the love of her life Trueman Bryer. They would celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary this year.
Together, in St. Albans, they raised their four children, Charlotte (James) Arkinson, Catherine (David) Woelfel, Pamela (Peter) Cross and Steve Bryer. Terry dedicated her life to the love and care of her family, her home, and gardens. She was proud of her grandchildren, Heather Arkinson, Julia Malia, Andy Bishop-Woelfel, Patrick Cross and Cassidy Bryer. Joining the family over the past few years were seven great-grandchildren who loved their Memé.
Through hard work and love, Therese and Trueman built their on Lake Champlain’s Shantee Point in St. Albans Bay. It was a place where all were welcome, many gatherings and friends events happened here with friends and family. They were also proud winter residents of Redington Shores, Fla. Many hours were spent on their balcony overlooking the ocean.
