Theresa A. Lamore, age 94, passed away on Monday, March 21, 2022 at The Manor Nursing Home in Morrisville. She was born on November 25, 1927 in Montgomery Center, the daughter of Austin and Alberta (Ploof) Lumbra.
Theresa graduated from Enosburg Falls High School in 1945 and married Romeo Lamore on April 24, 1947. They had two children: Gale St. Cyr and Jeffrey Lamore. They raised their family in Montgomery Center and remained there until the fall of 2016 when they moved to Hyde Park to be closer to their son and his family. In the fall of 2018, Theresa moved into assisted living at The Manor in Morrisville.
Theresa served as the Montgomery Town Clerk for 28 years, retiring in 1988. She belonged to the St. Anne Society of the St. Isidore Church in Montgomery Center and was active in the church and parish hall for many years. Theresa was a member of the Red Hat Society in Montgomery as well as a monthly "500" card club. She very much enjoyed eating out at different restaurants and socializing with the local ladies. She was also an avid Red Sox fan.
Theresa and her husband Romeo liked to travel in their younger/middle years. They made several trips to Hawaii and Aruba, participated in a family trip to Disney World, organized a family trip to New Orleans, and went gambling several times in Atlantic City.
Theresa enjoyed being active and loved spending time with her family, especially her granddaughters and great grandchildren. She provided many wonderful family gatherings that included great food, decorations, and fun. She especially loved playing card games with family members and bingo on Friday nights at the parish hall.
Theresa was predeceased by her husband Romeo on May 11, 2017 and her daughter Gale St. Cyr on August 4, 2018.
Theresa is survived by her son Jeffrey Lamore and wife Jo Ann (Kinney) of Hyde Park; granddaughter Chelsea Lamore of Johnson; granddaughter Brandi Dannat, husband Devin, son Liam and daughter Raegen, all of Eden; sister Connie (Lumbra) McFarland of Montgomery Center; brother Walter Lumbra of Morrisville; and many nieces and nephews.
