Danvers - Jeremiah Twomey, 93, of Lynn, passed away Monday afternoon, June 10, 2019, at the Kaplan Hospice House, Danvers, surrounded by his loving family. He was the loving husband of 48 years to the late Laurette M. (Roberge) Twomey. They shared most of their lives together in Salem before moving to Lynn in 1990.
Born in Youghal, Co. Cork, Ireland, Jeremiah was the son of the late Jeremiah and Margaret (Glavin) Twomey. Jeremiah lived a remarkable life. He enlisted in the Irish Army at 17. Upon being honorably discharged, he lived and worked in England, Scotland, Wales, Kuwait, and Canada, before immigrating to the United States in 1953. He worked for many years in construction, most recently with Redmond Concrete. He was a voracious reader and loved discussing politics and current events. He loved dancing, especially to the music of the Big Bands. An avid golfer and pool player, Jeremiah was a longtime member of the "Tenth Hole Club" at the Salem Municipal Golf Course and was a lifetime member of the Lafayette Associates in Salem. He was a devoted father and grandfather, never missing a sporting event, dance recital, drama presentation, or Grandparents' Day ceremony.
Surviving him are his two daughters; Lisa Gauthier and her husband Kevin of Lynn, and Eileen Twomey of Lynn; his son, Sean Patrick Twomey and his wife LeeAnn (Beverly) of Hampton, N.H.; two granddaughters, Alison Gauthier and Angelina Gauthier of Lynn; his sister-in-law, Eileen Twomey of Youghal; and several nieces and nephews.

(Roberge) Twomey, Jeremiah is predeceased by his siblings, Catherine O'Donoghue, Mary Ellen Halton, Nora Buttimer, Hannah Twomey, Elizabeth Twomey, John Twomey, William Twomey, and Michael Twomey. Jeremiah was also predeceased by his brothers-in-law; Roger Roberge, Lucien Roberge, and Robert Roberge.

s a young girl growing up in Youghal and living next door to the Twomey family I knew your Father as a glamorous person who visited every so often. He had an aura about him which to me, as a young girl, was both mysterious and fascinating!
He reminded me of Perry Como and in my adolescent mind I had a big crush on this man in the pale blue sweater which was so Comoish!
I was very close to Lizzie, who was my Godmother and adored Nannie Twomey. The family always made me feel loved and welcome in their home and as a lonely teenager, I spent quite a lot of time with them, eventually moving in for a couple of years before I left Ireland.
I offer my most sincere sympathy on your loss and wish yo
...u all the comfort of remembering happy times spent with Miah!Read more
