Albertina 'Tena' AuCoin

April 7, 1925 — July 4, 2017

Albertina ‘Tena’ AuCoin, 92, of Jaffrey, N.H. died peacefully at the Good Shepherd Healthcare Center on Tuesday, July 4, 2017, after a period of declining health.

Tena was born on April 7, 1925 in East Millinocket, Maine, daughter of the late Arthur and Rosanna (Corbin) Albert. Tena was educated in Millinocket and had moved to Jaffrey in 1952.

Tena had worked as an Inspector at W.W. Cross in Jaffrey. She had also worked at Winchendon Furniture, and at Hampshire Country School before retiring in 1990.

Family always came first for Tena. She would drop everything whenever her children and grandchildren called, and was always there as only a loving and doting grandmother (Meme) could be. After her family, Bingo, flea markets and yard sales were a source of joy, as well as gardening and refinishing antique clocks.

Tena is survived by her daughter, Patricia Dysart, and her son, Brent AuCoin and his wife Paula AuCoin, all of Jaffrey, as well as her 6 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren, all whom adored her.

A Catholic Graveside Committal Rite will be celebrated on Saturday, July 8, 2017 at 1:00pm in Saint Patrick Cemetery on Hillcrest Road in Jaffrey, N.H.

The family of Tena AuCoin are very thankful for all the gentle and loving care provided by the entire staff of Good Shepherd, from the Director to the LNA’s and the kitchen staff. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Good Shepherd Healthcare Center Activities Fund, 20 Plantation Drive, Jaffrey, NH 03452.
