Obituary for Theresa B. Finnell

Billerica—Theresa B. Finnell—Age 85, wife of the late Joseph T. Finnell, died Wednesday at Palm Manor Nursing Home in Chelmsford.

She was born in Westfield, November 25, 1932, was a daughter of the late Anthony and Theresa (Zibutis) Kopczynski, and lived in Westfield until her marriage in 1955 when her husband’s work took them to Louisiana and Kansas before ultimately making their home in Billerica in 1962.

Theresa was a communicant of St. Theresa’s Church and in years past had enjoyed singing in the choir. Theresa’s love for singing brought her some wonderful lifelong friendships and was very much a part of her life.

She was known for being appreciative of good food and sweets of any kind, especially Russell Stover jelly beans. Above all else though, Theresa loved her family. She enjoyed being involved in her two daughters’ lives and she adored her grandchildren. Theresa’s brother and his family were especially important to her.

She is survived by her two daughters, Jean Clements and her husband Stephen of Chelmsford and Sandi Finnell of Billerica; one brother, David Kopczynski of Cheshire, and two beloved grandchildren, Carter Joseph Clements and Sarah Miklinevich, as well as many loving nieces and nephews.
