Obituary For Judith Ann Spinale
Judi quietly passed away surrounded by love at her sister Karen's home in Salem, MA on Monday, November 15, 2021 after a courageous battle with cancer.
Judi was the daughter of Adam and Helen Pavenski. She grew up in the Gardner Park section of Peabody, MA and attended Peabody schools. She moved to NH over 20 years ago where she helped build her beautiful home on "Judi's Acres". Her beautiful and bountiful flower and vegetable gardens were a testimony to her loving and nurturing ways. Judi was an incredibly talented artist who designed and created primitive dolls and beautiful dried floral arrangements. Her attention to detail and quality was second to none. Judi was a very giving person who always put herself last. Those she loved were showered with the most thoughtful and useful gifts ever, which will forever serve as reminders of her thoughtfulness and generosity. She was the best.
Judi is survived by her son, Guy J. Spinale, Jr., granddaughters, Natalie and Ava Spinale, sisters, Karen Butler and Carole Anderson, brothers Danny (Carol) and Dennis Walsh, sister-in-law, Jeannita Walsh, companion, Chuck Dingle, her dog, Dusty Rose, and many cousins, nieces, nephews and grand nieces and nephews, including her nephew and Godson, Robert (Jen) Pavenski and her grandnephews, (Judi's "calendar boys") Aiden and Austin Pavenski.
She was predeceased by her parents, Adam and Helen Pavenski, sister, Helen Withrow, brother, Ed Walsh, grandparents, Anastacia and Stanley Pavenski, and Taimi and Matti Toivari, and brothers-in-law, Jim Butler and Chuck Anderson.
A special thank you to Judi's lifelong friend, Trish Cameron, and Middlesex East Visiting Nurse Hospice staff Ann Marie DiPaolo and Chevon Dorce for their much appreciated and loving care during Judi's illness.
Arrangements: A private graveside service will be held at Harmony Grove Cemetery, Salem. A celebration of life gathering for family and friends will be held at a later date. Assisting the family with the arrangements is the Conway Cahill- Brodeur Funeral Home, Peabody. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Judi's name to the Middlesex East Visiting Nurse Hospice/BI Lahey Health at Home.

I will always cherish the time we had together and will love you forever, Geeka! You were the best sister anyone could ever hope for. Thank you for always having my back.
Karen, I am sorry. My condolences to you, Guy and the girls, Chuck and your family. You are a wonderful sister. What you did for Judi at the end was true love. She always wanted to come home. and she got to. When I come to the end of the road, and the sun has set for me, I want no rites in a gloom filled room, why cry for a soul set free? Miss me a little, but not for long, and not with your head bowed low. Remember everything that we once shared, miss me but let me go. And when you are lonely and sick at heart, go to the friends we know. Laugh at all the things we used to do. Miss me but let me go. I love you Jude....Pooh Bear....friends 'til eternity.
Dear Karen,, My Sincere Condolences to you and yours and Judi's family. I saw Judi up in North Country, NH many years ago. She loved the mountains and lakes region. I have fond memories of her from our hometown of Peabody, wearing her hip hugger jeans and moccasins. Judi was such a free spirit ❤ God Bless ❤ Becky Mavroules-Jones
