Obituary

Theresa S. Riel peacefully passed away at Concord Regional VNA Hospice House on Monday April 30th, 2018 after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer's. Theresa was born in Pittsfield, NH and was a life-long resident until 2012 when she and her husband Paul moved to reside with their daughter Debi and her husband Mick for several years in Loudon.

She graduated from Pittsfield High School and took great pride in never missing a day of school in those 12 years. Throughout her working career, Theresa was employed at Blue Cross-Blue Shield and the NH Board of Underwriters in Concord NH. She also worked for Pittsfield Medical Center for 19 years. Her devotion to her co-workers and patients was immeasurable. She once skated two miles to work during an ice storm to make sure someone greeted those coming to work or keeping their appointment.

Theresa was a member of the Pittsfield Fireman's Auxiliary for 27 years and enjoyed being on the Pittsfield Beautification and Historical society. She was always willing to step in as a care-giver to relatives and friends whenever the need.

She is survived by her husband of 68 years Paul Riel, their daughter Debi Mulkhey and her husband Mick of Loudon; their son David Riel and his wife Jenette of Piedmont NH. She leaves 7 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren, all of whom loved her as much as she loved them.

Graveside services will be held Friday May 11th at 10am at the Flora Park Cemetery, 30 Barnstead Road in Pittsfield NH. A reception will be held immediately following the service at the Snow Shakers Club House on Clough Pond Road in Loudon NH.
