Terese A. “Terry” Wouters
Terry Wouters passed away on May 29, 2020 surrounded by her loving and devoted family. She was 92 and passed from natural causes.
Terry was born in a house on Main Street in East Quogue on January 4, 1928 to Elizabeth and Austin Carter. She married Arthur Langsdorf, Jr. and had three daughters, Linda Hatcher (Robert-deceased), Terri Klager (Frank Mineo) and Peggi Booth (Kenneth). She later married George Wouters and had two more daughters, Georgi DePasquale (Louis) and Elizabeth Wouters (deceased).
Before Terry was able to graduate from high school, she had to work at Republic Aviation during World War II to help support her family. Terry was a founding member of Christ Our Saviour Lutheran Church where she taught nursery school for many years and continued to be an active member for the remainder of her life. In the 1970’s she was a co-owner of the “The Coach” in Hampton Bays and served many friends and community members with not only a drink but with a joke or two. After they sold the business, Terry started her own cleaning company which she enjoyed. She finally settled into retirement when the last of her grandchildren were born.
Terry’s interests included camping with her family, bowling, watching NASCAR racing and the Yankees as well as singing her favorite bible songs. She was quick witted and made everyone laugh and smile wherever she went.
In addition to her daughters, she is survived by her sister Audrey Hogge, of East Quogue. She was pre-deceased by her brothers and sister, Vernon Carter, Rodney Carter and Marie McNulty.
She leaves behind the following grandchildren: Ramona Kuroski (Robert), Robin Hatcher, Kenneth Booth, Jr. (Susan), Kevin Booth, Rene Klager, Kaylee Wouters-Hatcher, Nicole and Lauren DePasquale. She is also survived by her great-grandchildren: Kathryn, Thomas and Megan Kuroski, Austin Shimer and Allison Booth, and Ethan Booth.
