LORETTO BYRNE

Beloved wife of 57 years and cherished mom of ten children, Loretto Byrne (nee Keenan) entered eternal rest on Sunday, April 2, 2017.
Loretto is survived by her husband, Manus, and her adoring children: Thomas (Patricia), Michael (Susan), Helen, Mary Wilkinson, Gabriel (Christina), Gregory (Tara), Matthew (Liz), David (Darrah), Ann (Wesley) Gaus, Elizabeth (John) Feeney. She also leaves behind 24 cherished grandchildren, and her sisters: Ettamoya (Owenie) Doonan of Co. Cavan, Kathleen Dwyer of Middletown, NY, and Philomena (Jim) Brennan of Wantagh, NY.

Born in Bawnboy, County Cavan, Ireland, Loretto immigrated to New York in the 1950s.

In 2005, Loretto and Manus moved back to New York City, where they joined Holy Cross Church on 42nd Street.

She was a devoted Catholic, and a long-time member of the Bronx Pioneer Total Abstinence Association of the Sacred Heart.
