Georgetown — Elizabeth A. (Hayes) Tetrault, 59 of Georgetown, “sailed past the sunset” on Monday, April 1, 2013, at home after a lengthy illness. She was the wife of Tom Tetrault and daughter of Anne (Burke) Hayes and the late Henry ‘Bud’ Hayes.
After graduation from Danvers High School and Regis College, she pursued her career as a foreign language and social studies teacher at the middle school level, retiring from Lynnfield in 2010.
