Christine I. “Chris” (Traynor) DiReeno, 73, of Harvard, MA, passed away January 19, 2023, after a long battle with breast cancer.  She was born in Cambridge, MA, one of seven children of the late Joseph and Helen (Doherty) Traynor.

Raised in Arlington, MA, Chris was a graduate of Arlington High School. She retired from the MBTA, where she worked as a bus driver operating out of the Salem Street and Charlestown garages.  She was an avid reader, loved going to the beach, and watching football, but mostly her favorite team the Patriots.  In her spare time, Chris enjoyed gardening and baking especially making zucchini bread from her garden.  She also cherished spending time with her grandchildren.  

Chris was the devoted mother of Michael DiReeno of Worcester, MA, Sherri Cleary and her husband Jay of Salem, NH, and Danielle DiRusso of Lowell, MA; and was the beloved grandmother of Alex Bellan-DiReeno and Calvin Cleary.
