Nancy J. O’Brien, of the Town of Newburgh entered into rest on Monday, February 26, 2018. She was 80.
The daughter of the late Edward and Anne B. (Sickles) Cutone, Nancy was born October 27, 1937 in Boston, MA.
At age twelve, Nancy met the love of her life, Ken whom she married in October of 1958. Ken’s job took them away from Massachusetts to New Jersey and then their home at 4 Spur Terrace in Meadow Hill of Newburgh where they raised their sons. Although they had to relocate, they stayed close to their family members in Massachusetts often traveling “home” to visit or talk on the phone. A loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Nancy’s family was a constant source of joy to her. She would often tell friends of the parties and other events a growing family generates. She and Ken happily attended the many recitals, science fairs, concerts and graduations.
Nancy was a retired Transportation Coordinator for Sylcox and the Elant Nursing Home in Newburgh. She was also a member of the bible study at New Freedom Church.
