Abbie A.  Coady
Clinton-Abbie Ann Coady, 90, passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 30, 2021 at the Worcester Rehab & Health Care Center in Worcester following a period of declining health. She is reunited with her two sons, Gerald Cafarelli and Robert Cafarelli.

She was pre-deceased by siblings: Rita Chase, Mary Sarristo, Susan Fontaine, James Coady and Charles Coady.
Abbie was born in Maynard, one of eight children to the late James F. and Mary Ellen (O’Keefe) Coady. She was raised and educated in Hudson and graduated from Hudson High School, Class of 1950. In younger years, Abbie had a flare for fashion and jitterbug dancing. Among her many passions in life, she wrote poetry, was a talented cook and seamstress, played bingo and was an avid reader. She was a household arts girl who loved life, antiques, and flea markets. Alongside her mother, Abbie owned and operated the Treasure Shop in Berlin for many years, where she enjoyed the friendship of many. She was the proud recipient of several community service awards and was recognized for her contributions to numerous political campaigns, notably for Naughton, Volpe, Kerry, Kennedy, and McGovern. She was a parishioner of the former Our Lady of Jasna Gora Parish in Clinton, served as past President of the Fraternal Order of Eagles, and held membership with the Veterans of Foreign War Auxiliary. The family wish to thank the Clinton Police and Fire Departments for their care and service.
