Obituary for Theresa Casey "Terry" Flanagan

Theresa Casey Flanagan, age 88, of Newtown, Connecticut, formerly a long-time resident of Bellmore, New York passed away peacefully at her home on March 30, 2019 surrounded by her family after a courageous battle with cancer.

Theresa (Terry) was born on August 10, 1930 in Brooklyn, New York, a daughter of the late Patrick Casey and Mary Ann Bligh Casey. She graduated from St. John’s University.

In 1957 she married Thomas Flanagan, a lawyer, who later became the director of the New York City Police Department’s legal division. They settled on Long Island, where they raised their children. Terry taught reading in the Bellmore public schools and later became a substitute teacher so that she could devote more time to her family. Her passion for the arts led her to volunteer for over twenty years at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, where she had introduced her children and later her grandchildren to painting and sculpture. She was also an enthusiastic bridge player and gardener as well as a lifelong swimmer.

Terry is survived by her adoring husband, Tom, her beloved children, Nancy (Timothy), Tom (Marion), Susan, Anastasia, Moira (Greg) and John (Lily), as well as her cherished seven granddaughters, Caroline, Claire, Fiona, Lily, Madeleine, Annabelle, and Rebecca. She is also survived by her loving brother James Casey. Her brothers, Patrick and Lawrence Casey predeceased her.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on April 3, 2019 at 10:00am in St. Mary’s R.C. Church at 26 Dodgingtown Road, Bethel, Connecticut. Interment will be private. Arrangements in care of Honan Funeral Home, 58 Main Street, Newtown
