Teresa Rose Nunes Pawelczyk Dall, of Mattapoisett, passed away on September 4, 2023, at age 77. She is survived by her husband Mark; her children Andrew, Amy, and Peter; her step-children Christine and Kennet; her brother Charles; and her grandchild, step-grandchildren, and great-grandchild. As a teacher at Old Rochester Regional High School for over 25 years, Teresa fostered creativity, a love of literature, and a love of learning that many of her students continue to share with others in their adult lives. Families and children walking by Teresa’s house on North Street would delight each spring to discover what was new in the Barbie Garden. Teresa experienced many special moments in her life, traveling, enjoying the arts, spending time with her beloved dog Leroy, and sharing the joy of family and friends. A gathering will be held in the near future, within likely a month or so, to remember and celebrate Teresa’s life.
