Obituary of Theresa Koblinski

Theresa M. (Gerbes) Koblinski, 81, of Marlborough, CT and Marco Island, FL, wife of the late Charles J. Koblinski, died Saturday December 28, 2013 at Hartford Hospital. Born February 29, 1932 in Paterson, NJ, daughter of the late Frederick and Helen (Fisher) Gerbes, she had lived in Glastonbury for many years before moving to Marlborough in 1999. She was a graduate St. John's High School in Paterson, NJ, as well as the Sherwood School of Secretarial Training in New York City. She worked for many years at Gideon Welles School in Glastonbury before moving into a position at Aetna as a portfolio manager until her retirement in 1993. Terry was a member of the First Church of Christ, Congregational in Glastonbury where she enjoyed participating in the prayer shawl ministry and weekly prayer group. She was a former member of Woodledge Club and Glastonbury Hills Country Club, where she played golf and tennis and enjoyed many happy summers with family and friends. An avid Scrabble player, she recently added Words with Friends to her game playing repertoire. A Sunday didn't go by without completion of the New York Times Crossword puzzle and she was always up for a competitive game of Bridge or Mah Jongg. Calls home were not welcome between the hours of 7 and 8 pm as her viewing of Jeopardy and Wheel of Fortune would not be interrupted. Terry is survived by her three children, their spouses, and grandchildren: Kathleen and Charles Lawes and their children Sam, Emma and Abby of Glastonbury; Thomas Docherty of Friendswood, TX; William Andrew and Donna Docherty and their children Connor, London and Brooke of Fairfax Station, VA; and her stepson and his family Charles J., Jr. and Carolina Koblinski and their children Kyle and Alex of Pickerington, OH. All will miss her dearly. A memorial service will be celebrated on Thursday January 2 at 11 am at the First Church of Christ, Congregational, 2183 Main St., Glastonbury. There are no calling hours. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the American Cancer Society, 825 Brook St., Rocky Hill, CT 06067. For online condolences please visit
