Obituary for Therese (McCarthy) Massey

Therese Massey, age 98, of the Lordship community, Stratford, CT, peacefully passed away on Monday, May 20th, 2024. She was daughter of the late Thomas and Margaret McCarthy of Bridgeport, CT, sister the late Thomas McCarthy, and the beloved wife of the late Vincent Massey for 72 years.


Therese had been a Stratford resident for over 70 years. She was the heart and soul of her family, raising eight children, and supporting her husband in the family business, Massey Fuel, Inc. She was a devoted mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Therese found time to perfect her bowling game, as she was an avid member of a Stratford women’s league. Therese was a lifelong member of Our Lady of Peace Church and was an active member of the Rosary Society there. Therese enjoyed 50 plus years as a member of Milford Yacht Club, swimming, boating, and perfecting her sidestroke in the pool.

She remained active well into her senior years, attending the local fitness center, socializing with her friends of the Red Hat Society, and always making time for a dinner out with her husband. Therese took great enjoyment in fashion and was well known around town for her classic style and vibrant hats.


Therese is survived by her eight children, Margaret (Paul) Lasek, George (Kim) Massey, Vincent (Patricia) Massey, Kathy (Christopher) Thompson, Kevin (Jeanne) Massey, Eileen (Joseph) Homza, Robert (Beth) Massey, and Christopher (Stephanie) Massey, sister-in-law, Rita Good. Therese leaves behind an impressive legacy, including 21 grandchildren and 35 great grandchildren.


The family is most grateful to Accent Care and Mozaic Senior Living for their wonderful care and support over the last few months.


Family and friends are invited to attend a Funeral Mass of Christian Burial celebrated by Father Peter J. Towsley on Friday, May 24, 2024 at 10:00 a.m. at Our Lady of Peace Church, 651 Stratford Road, Stratford, CT 06615.
