Christine O’Horo

Christine “Chrissy” O’Horo passed away peacefully on Nov. 10 at the age of 59 after an extended illness.

Chrissy was born on Oct. 11, 1964, to Stephen Joseph O’Horo Jr. and Jeanne (McGowan) O’Horo in Fitchburg. She graduated from the Boston School for the Deaf in 1981 and the Model Secondary School for the Deaf in Washington, D.C., in 1985. She spent many rewarding years working as a teacher’s aide at the Learning Center for the Deaf in Framingham, and she lived many years in Hopkinton. She cherished her time with students and the opportunity to positively impact their lives.

She was known for her kindness, devout faith and keen sense of humor. She was dedicated to her students, friends and family. She formed many lasting memories on the shores of Cape Cod. She often traveled throughout the country to visit her many close friends and family members. She loved and supported those around her. She was a passionate and talented family historian who carefully preserved the memories of her predecessors. Her faith was of paramount importance. She sought and followed the word of the Lord throughout her life. She treasured her faith and the companionship of those who shared it.

As her health declined, she faced each challenge with bravery and grace. She prayed for her family and those close to her right through her final days. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her, including Debbie Law, Marie Morris, Donna Easton, Joyce Doblmeier and Debbie Roth. Chrissy’s family wish to extend their thanks to all of Chrissy’s many friends, near and far.

She was predeceased by her father, Stephen O’Horo Jr., mother, Jeanne O’Horo, brother, Stephen O’Horo III, and dear friend Charles Humphrey. She is survived by her loving siblings, John O’Horo (wife Kristine) and Kathleen (O’Horo) Bannigan, her sister-in-law, Linda O’Horo, her niece, Dr. Colleen Bannigan; her nephews, Dr. Jack O’Horo (wife Alex), David O’Horo, Mark O’Horo (wife Alden), Michael O’Horo (wife Lindsay) and Conor Bannigan (wife Meghan), her grandnephew, Charlie O’Horo, and her grandniece, Claire O’Horo.
