Dr. Therese Ouimet
16 July 1926 to 4 June 2021
Dr. Therese Irene Ouimet passed away in her sleep at Amethyst House on June 4, 2021. She was a Las Vegas resident for the past 25 years. She was born in Cohoes, NY on July 16, 1926. She was preceded in death by her parents, Daniel Ouimet and Rose Giroux Ouimet, her sister Frances Maher and her dear friend Pauline Pariseau.
Dr. Ouimet joined the Sisters of St. Anne in Marlboro, Mass. as a young woman and was a missionary and Mother Superior in Haiti for 17 years. She completed her master’s degree in Education at Magill University in Montreal, and her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Tulane University. She had a private clinical practice in Rhode Island for 20 years.
She spent her life caring for and inspiring others. She was a strong, compassionate, generous, opinionated, intelligent, and independent woman who did God’s work on earth. She is survived by her nieces, Suzanne Wagner, lynda halttunen, Olivia Story, Claire Page, and countless great nieces and nephews and their families; as well as dear friends, whom she met wherever she went. May she be at peace in Heaven with God and His Angels, where we know she will continue to send blessings and love to all of us. The family would like to acknowledge the help and care received from the staff at Amethyst House and Covenant Hospice Care.
