Therese Margaret Treacy

December 5, 1937May 16, 2020

Therese Margaret Treacy (formerly Kinnaly), passed away peacefully on May 16th after a long battle with Alzheimer’s. This disease did not define her, it was a small part of the story of her life. She was an amazing woman who made everyone feel welcomed and loved. She made the world a brighter place.

Terri grew up in East Boston and was the daughter of George and Theresa (Miniscalco) Kinnaly. She had one brother, the late George Kinnaly of Saugus, MA, and is survived by her sister-in-law, Eleanor Kinnaly of Middleton, MA. Terri is also predeceased in passing by her loving husband, John Treacy.

Terri and John were married for 53 years and resided in Sudbury, MA. They lovingly raised their 3 children, Anne, Steve and Kevin. Terri worked for over 20 years at AT&T as both Customer Service Representative and Sales Representative. After raising her children, she then returned to work as a Group Leader at Sudbury Extended Day at the Josiah Haynes School for 20 years. In that role, Terri was a loving figure who used patience and kindness with all children in her care. She enjoyed doing arts and crafts projects with the children and she enhanced the lives of all in her care.

She is survived by her daughter Anne Lee and husband Patrick of Newton, MA formerly of Sudbury, MA and their children, Briana, Katie & Conor; her son Steven Treacy and wife Jennifer of Brookline, NH and their children, Caitlin, Branden & Devyn; and her son Kevin Treacy and wife Jen of Framingham, MA and their children, Brendan and Matthew.

Terri deeply loved all of her children and grandchildren. Her happiest moments were spent with family and friends going out to dinner, shopping or watching sporting events. She was loved by so many people of all ages and always found the good in everyone.

A private funeral will be held for immediate family and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

I have MANY happy memories of good times shared with Terry and John, first with children at get-togethers and then just as couples. Terry was very special, always asking about others and offering to help when needed and sharing her love for life with everyone she knew.Rest in Peace Terry... with John once more.

I was principal of the Haynes School, Sudbury for 30 years. I had the extreme pleasure of working with Terri. She was truly a joyful presence and as much a part of the Haynes staff as she was head of the after school program. She had a non-top smile and greeted the day with a positive energy and a contagious laugh. She never forgot to acknowledge her colleagues and always had a laugh and smile for me. I looked forward to her daily arrival at school and knew in my heart that the children were in good hands with her presence. My condolences to her family and former students of Haynes.

I just loved your mom! No matter what, she always laughed and wanted to hear how I was doing and if I'd found a boyfriend yet:)) She just added such a bright light to the room the minute she walked in. Many people loved her. Wishing you all peace.
