Theresa “Terry” Garbich, 77, of Marlborough, CT passed away on April 18, 2022. She was born in Hartford, CT, the daughter of the late Henry and Anastasia (Raulukaitis) Jarvis.
Terry was a very generous person and was always willing to help out. The most important thing to her was her family. As a single mother of three, she devoted all of her free time to raising her children, going on adventures and playing board games with them. She spent countless hours at the hockey rink, softball sidelines and school functions proudly watching her grandchildren. Just mention any one of them to her and her eyes would light up. She was selfless and was always available for them. Terry enjoyed working on her family genealogy and most enjoyed her outings with her siblings to the casino. Terry’s love of animals began at young age growing up on a farm with bunnies, pigs and chickens. Her most beloved pet was her pet skunk, Speedy. Yes - a skunk!
She is survived by her daughter Roseann Pelletier and her husband, Bailey; daughter Victoria Flynn and her husband, Kevin; and son Max Garbich and his wife Judy; Grandson and U.S. Marine, Spencer, and Granddaughters Caitlyn and Anastacia; and her Sister Elaine Martocchio. She was predeceased by her Brothers, Raymond and Henry Jarvis and Sister Bertha Sanzaro.
Her graveside service will be Thursday, April 28, 2022 at 2:00pm at St. Catherine’s Cemetery, 64 Rye St. Broad Brook, CT 06016. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the American Diabetes Association or to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).
