Theresa (Ouellette) Gustus, (Terry), 56, of Lisbon, passed away peacefully at Androscoggin Home Care & Hospice in Auburn on February 23, 2022, with her husband and children by her side following a long battle with a rare lung disease.

She was born in Lewiston on January 19, 1966, daughter of the late Maurice & Noella (Pelletier) Ouellette. She graduated from Lewiston High School in 1984.

Terry married her soulmate, Rory Gustus on June 23, 1984. They raised their family in Sabattus.  She was well known in the community while working as office manager of NMC Home Care.

Her biggest joys in life were her family. Her granddaughters were her world, and she also had a special bond with her great niece Kinsley Gustus.  She loved all animals, especially her pets, Missy and Precious.  Terry personified love and always showed empathy towards anyone who crossed her path.  She loved to cook and was always the first to offer a meal to anyone in need.  She made sure that no one left her home hungry. Her legacy will be how she instilled in her children and grandchildren the gift of compassion for others.
