Heather Lynn Theberge
Heather Lynn Theberge, 42, of Somerville, MA passed away peacefully on
January 3, 2021, at Massachusetts General Hospital after a courageous six-
month battle with an aggressive endometrial cancer.
Born on November 27, 1978 to the late Barbara (Rozett) Theberge and the late
Paul Theberge she was raised in southern New Hampshire and graduated from
Nashua High School South in 1997. Following high school, she moved to
Massachusetts to pursue her love for art, earning her bachelor’s degree from the
Massachusetts College of Art.
Heather began working at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in
2012 and greatly enjoyed her role as an Undergraduate Office Assistant.
Survived by her long-time boyfriend Daniel Casey, of Somerville, MA and by her
sisters, Marianne (Theberge) Jones and husband, Michael Jones of Milford, NH
and Michele Del Monaco of Roswell, GA as well as a niece, Lauren Nay of
Milford, NH and a nephew Dominic Claar of Roswell, GA.
Heather was a gentle and caring soul whose smile would light up a room. Adored
by all who knew her, she had even developed quite a fan club amongst the
doctors and nurses at Massachusetts General Hospital. We will forever be
grateful for their expertise and amazing care during this most difficult journey.
Prior to her illness, Heather enjoyed French culture, 80’s music, flowers,
spending time with family and friends and doting on her beloved cat Hazel.
In lieu of flowers, and to honor Heather’s love of animals, donations can be made
to the Animal Rescue League of NH, 545 Route 101, Bedford, NH 03110 in her
name or at https://www.rescueleague.org/.
A private celebration of life will take place at a future time. We would love
to hear your memories of our sweet Heather and always welcome talking about
her and keeping her memory alive, as she will always be at the forefront of our
minds and hearts.
Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
