Judy Gabriele

d. January 18, 2022


Judy Ann (Whiterell) Gabriele, 71, passed away on January 18, 2022 at Holden Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Center in Holden, Massachusetts where she resided for 2 years.  She passed peacefully after a long illness.  Following her instructions, there will be a graveside service at Central Cemetery in Millbury, Massachusetts in the spring with no other calling hours or funeral service.

Judy was born on December 11, 1950 in Worcester, Massachusetts to Charlotte (McDermott) and Irving Whiterell. She grew up in Millbury, Massachusetts then moved to Rhode Island following her marriage to Anthony Gabriele of Rhode Island.  She resided in Rhode Island until she moved to Brookdale Eddy Pond East in Auburn, Massachusetts in 2017.

Judy is survived by her son, Anthony (Tony) Gabriele, Jr of San Diego, CA; her brother, John Whiterell and his wife, Susan Ojerholm Whiterell of Millbury, MA; and her sister, Linda Whiterell Stevens of Millbury, MA.  In addition, she is survived by her special life-long friend, Christine Graber Robbins of Worcester, MA.

Her life was well lived and although she had many chronic illnesses throughout her life, she was one tough lady who fought through setbacks with a cheerful attitude. We will all remember her beautiful smile and twinkling eyes.

We would like to express our thanks for the wonderful help and care given by Holden Rehab and Skilled Nursing Center and also by Notre Dame Hospice of Worcester.

If desired, friends may make memorial contributions to the American Lung Association 55 W. Wacker Drive, Suite 1150, Chicago, IL 60601.

There Is No Night Without a Dawning by Helen Steiner Rice

There is no night without a dawning

No winter without a spring

And beyond the dark horizon

Our hearts will once more sing…

For those who leave us for a while

Have only gone away

Out of the restless, care worn world

Into a brighter day
