Lucille M. Ausiello

February 15th, 2019

Lucille M. Ausiello (Sabella), age 76, of Tewksbury, formerly a long-time resident of Wilmington, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her loving family on February 14, 2019.

Lucille was the beloved wife of 55 years to Alfred A. “Al” Ausiello, devoted mother of Laura Piscatelli & her husband John of Billerica, Andrea Manning & her husband Stephen of Reading, Al Ausiello & his wife Maria of Tyngsborough and Jennifer Ausiello-Rosenthal & her husband Joshua of Rockville, MD. Loving “Grammy” of Jaclyn Ventura & her husband Michael, Jessica Piscatelli, Brian and Sean Manning, Christopher and Nicholas Ausiello and Gabriella Rosenthal. Cherished daughter of the late Anthony and C. Lillian (Catanzaro) Sabella, dear sister of the late Stephen Sabella. Lucille was the beloved sister-in-law of James and Eleanor Buckley of Wilmington, the late John Ausiello of Malden, MA and the late William Ausiello of Malden, MA. Lucille was also the special aunt of several nieces and nephews.

Lucille was born on October 10, 1942, in Boston, MA. She grew up in the North End of Boston and attended the Julie Billiart High School. She got married to her beloved husband, Al, in 1963. They lived in Chelsea until 1972, at which time they moved to Wilmington, MA, where they lived until 2008. In 2008, they relocated to Tewksbury, MA.

Family came first to Lucille and she loved spending time with her four children and seven grandchildren, who brought her much joy. During their early years, she and “Grandpa” were always there to care for them. She loved watching them grow and attending all of their activities and special events, never missing a milestone. She spent as much time as she could with her youngest granddaughter, Gabriella, who was born last year. She loved cooking Sunday dinners for her family. Lucy’s gravy and meatballs were to die for and famous among her children’s friends. She took great pride in her Italian ancestry and recently took a trip to Italy to explore her heritage with the Madonna del Soccorso Italian social club, of which she was a member. She enjoyed the annual tradition of the Fisherman’s Feast in Boston every August, where she celebrated her father’s life as a fisherman. Since moving to Tewksbury, she loved living next to her cousin, Elena Mahoney, who she grew up with in the North End and was more like a sister to her than a cousin. She made many new friends and loved going “out with the girls” every Thursday, going shopping, out to lunch, to the movies and other adventures. She also enjoyed monthly couples’ dinners with her neighbors, dining at a different restaurant each month and sharing in dessert at each other’s houses afterwards.

Family and friends will gather at the Nichols Funeral Home, 187 Middlesex Ave. (Rte. 62), Wilmington, on Tuesday, February 19th at 9:00 a.m. followed by a Mass of Christian Burial in St. Thomas of Villanova Church, 126 Middlesex Ave., Wilmington at 10:00 a.m. Interment Wildwood Cemetery, Wilmington. Visiting Hours will be held at the Funeral Home on Monday, February 18th from 3:00-7:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Lucille’s memory may be made to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, 262 Danny Thomas Place, Memphis, TN 38105.
