Agnes "Betsy" (Killeen) Punch

January 11, 1938 ~ July 4, 2020 (age 82)


PUNCH, Agnes “Betsy” (Killeen). Age 82, of Milton formerly of Somerville. Beloved wife of the late Francis “Frank” Punch Jr. Devoted mother of Christopher & Dennis, both of Milton, John & his wife Michelle of Stoneham and Michael & his wife Kristen of Marshfield. Cherished grandmother of Andrew, Jared, Julia & Colin Punch. Loving daughter of the late John J. & Julia (O’Neil) Killeen. Devoted sister of Mary McDonald of Franklin, Joan DiNapoli of Dunwoody, Georgia and Thomas Killeen of Somerville. Betsy was predeceased by her beloved sisters, Margaret Killeen, Claire Hardy, Patricia Moynihan, Edna McDonnell, & Barbara Killeen as well as her dear brothers Richard and John “Jackie” Killeen.  Precious aunt to her many nieces and nephews. 

Betsy worked as a librarian in Somerville before being introduced to Frank at the insistence of her sister Edna. Betsy and Frank lived in the Wollaston section of Quincy before they outgrew the house and moved to Milton. She focused on bringing up her four sons and all the work that goes into being a homemaker. Betsy later worked for Milton Public Schools in the lunch program at Collicott Elementary School and volunteered at Milton Hospital. 

Betsy loved the family annual vacations to York Beach, Maine and visiting with her relatives over the years. She loved watching Turner classic movies and watching Tom Brady and her beloved Patriots. Most of all, she loved spending time with her children and grandchildren.

Betsy’s faith in God was unwavering. Her biggest passion was helping others through her faith. She was a generous benefactor to numerous Catholic charities. She also devoted much of her time helping despondent people at the Prayer Line at St Patrick’s Church in Cambridge. She also continuously prayed for family, friends and anyone in need throughout her life. She will be remembered as a beacon of hope and love by all that knew her.
