Obituary of Judith E. Emmett

Judith E. (Grusheski) Emmett, 77, of Groveland, MA and formerly of Peabody, MA, died suddenly on Tuesday January 7, 2020 at her residence. She was the devoted wife of William D. Emmett with whom she shared 57 years of marriage. She was born in Salem, MA on April 25, 1942, the daughter of the late Walter H. and Michaelina (Lewandowski) Grusheski and was raised in Peabody before moving to Groveland 48 years ago. Judith was a graduate of St. Chritienne School in Salem MA and earned her bachelor’s degree at Merrimack College. She was gifted with her hands and poured her love into making quilts, crafts and clothes for her friends and family. She was a strong woman of faith growing up in St. Joseph’s Polish Church in Peabody and later a member of St. Patrick’s Church, Groveland and recently at St. Adelaide’s Church, Peabody. She was deeply involved with Prayer groups, bible studies and living out her Catholic faith. Her most joyful times were spent raising her children and then her precious eight grandchildren whom she adored watching them grow and mature. She was a second mom to many and she was the family connector who kept the large family reunions going strong. She is survived by her husband, William, her three children, Randall K, and his wife Linda Emmett of E. Kingston, NH and Steven W. Emmett of Groveland, and her daughter and son-in-law, Sharon Ann and James Teague of Peabody, a brother and sister-in-law, Robert G and Roberta Grusheski of Perkasie, PA, her eight grandchildren, Danielle and Jessica Emmett and Cana, Michaelina, James, Ambrose, Adelaide and Jean Frances Teague and many nieces and nephews.
