Obituary for Nancy T. Byrne

DANVERS- Nancy T. (Truesdale) Byrne, 75, passed away on February 16, 2024. She was the wife of the late Edward T. Byrne with whom she shared 39 years of marriage.

Born in Manchester, NH on July 27, 1948, she was the daughter of the late Frederick and Joan (Verrette) Truesdale. She was raised and educated in Manchester, NH, then attended boarding school which allowed her to study abroad at Mount-Oliver for Girls in Lausanne, Switzerland. She then traveled to Italy and France with her twin sister, Susie, at the age of 15. Nancy graduated from Endicott College, where she met many lifelong friends, including the love of her life, Eddie. She had several careers, but her focus and passion was family and she was a homemaker in the true sense of the word.

A beautiful woman inside and out, Nancy was known to many as kind, gentle, thoughtful, and had a flair for design. Nancy loved traveling the world with her husband, family and friends. She also enjoyed sewing, painting, going to the beach, and spending time with her “precious grandchildren.”

She is survived by her three children, Michael Byrne of Marlborough, Jacqueline Cuccia and her husband, Michael of Beverly and Elise Jarvis and her husband, Gregory of Salem, her beloved grandchildren, Dylan, Olivia, Evelyn, Isabella, and Colette, her twin sister, Susan Popek and her husband Richard of NY, her in-laws, John and Denise Byrne of NH, Theresa and Robert Murphy of Peabody, Patricia and Leonard Haines of Peabody and Anne Marie and Timothy Murray of Norton, many nieces and nephews, and grand nieces and nephews.
