Terese J. Femrite, age 78, passed away on Thursday, Feb. 22, 2007, at St. Mary's Hospital in Madison after a lengthy illness. She was born on June 25, 1928, in Westport, the daughter of the late Joseph and Genevieve Mooney.

Terese graduated from Oregon High School in 1946. Terese worked in California before returning to Wisconsin. She then trained as a physical therapist and worked at the Jackson Clinic in Madison. Terese was married to Nels T. Femrite on Aug. 21, 1951, in Oregon, and together raised a loving family. Terese worked for the state of Wisconsin for many years and retired in January 1991. Terese suffered a massive and devastating stroke in July 1991.

Prior to her stroke, Terese found her greatest joy in traveling with Nels all over the country, especially Hawaii, where they had been nine times. She enjoyed gardening, dining out, and spending time with her eight grandchildren.

Terese is survived by her loving husband of 55 years, Nels; her son, Gregory (Gretchen) Femrite of Spring Green; her daughter, Mary (Shane) Pueschner of Fitchburg; seven grandchildren, Lindsay Femrite of Deforest, Leslie Femrite Wandler of San Diego, Jacqueline Davenport of McFarland, Christian and Johanna Femrite of Spring Green, and Erin and Caitlin Pueschner of Fitchburg; two great-grandchildren; two sisters, Kathleen Kohlman and Genevieve McGaw; many nieces and nephews; and many, many friends.

In addition to her parents, Terese was preceded in death by her daughter, Joan Femrite Davenport in 2004; her granddaughter, Kristine Davenport in 2000; two brothers, Joseph Mooney and Robert Mooney; three sisters, Mary Klubertanz, Loretta Caruso, and Rita Nevel; and 15 aunts and uncles.

Van Buren St., Stoughton, with Monsignor Gerard Healy celebrating the Mass. Entombment will be in Roselawn Memorial Park following the reception at the church.
