Nancy (Brown) DeSimone of Derry, NH passed away peacefully in her home on May 15, 2020 at the age of 62. Born on July 26, 1957 to Robert Brown Sr. and Claire (Powers) Brown.  She graduated Melrose High School Class of 1975.

Devoted wife to the late Ronald DeSimone of Medford, MA with whom she enjoyed 13 years of marriage. Loving mother to Ernest Gylphe III of Derry, NH; Megan Regan and her husband Dan of Tewksbury, MA; and Colleen Gylphe and her partner Nick Black of Manchester, NH.  Nancy’s greatest joy in life was her three grandchildren, Kaela Gylphe, Alexander Black and Ryleigh Regan.

Nancy is survived by her three siblings, Janet Zagarella and her husband Robert of Revere, MA; Susan Brown of Tewksbury, MA; and Bob Brown of Merrimac, MA. She is also survived by many loving nieces and nephews as well as several great nieces and a great nephew.

Nancy loved any excuse for her family to be together. Especially on our many mini adventures, vacations, holidays and movie nights (at least when she could stay awake for the movie!). We will always remember her deep love of anything having to do with Ireland.

Services and burial will be private. The Twomey, LeBlanc, & Conte Funeral Home 193 High St. Newburyport, MA 01950 is assisting Mrs. DeSimone’s family with her funeral arrangements.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in Nancy’s name to the American Diabetes Association.
