Gloria A. (Caramello) DeAngelis, 88, longtime Shrewsbury resident, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, January 6, 2021 at UMASS Memorial Hospital. She was the daughter of the late Anthony and Laura (Campanelli) Caramello and the beloved wife of the late Salvatore J. “Sal” DeAngelis, who passed in 2005 after 47 wonderful years of marriage.

Gloria leaves her loving daughters, Donna M. DeAngelis and Lori A. Rupolo, and her husband, Michael J. Rupolo, Sr., all of Shrewsbury; her grandson, Michael J. Rupolo, Jr. and his wife Kristen, of Shrewsbury; her brother, Anthony Caramello, Jr. and his wife Patty Ann of Worcester, and her sister, Barbara Husson, of Westborough; as well as many cherished nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by sisters, Maria “Jo” Dagostino and Beatrice Strozina.

Born and raised in Worcester, Gloria was educated in the Worcester Public Schools, and attended secretarial school. She met her beloved Sal while he was buying a vehicle at Gallo Oldsmobile, they dated, fell in love and married. They eventually made their home in Shrewsbury where they raised their family. Gloria enjoyed being a stay-at-home Mom when her daughters were small, but later went back to work; first at Hahnemann Hospital and then onto Memorial Hospital, from which she retired.

In her free time Gloria enjoyed gardening. The neighbors enjoyed the spring when her beautifully crafted planters started to appear in her yard. She loved ceramics and arts & crafts. Her taste in music was diverse - from the Italian classics to the crooners to Il Divo. She was even influenced by her daughters’ playlists but the minute Il Divo came to town, she dropped everything for a seat close to the stage! Known for her cooking, especially “gravy” and meatballs, family and friends planned their visits around mealtime. Gloria was a faithful communicant of St. Mary’s Church in Shrewsbury for many years.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, P.O. Box 5014, Hagerstown, MD 21741-5014 (www.michaeljfox.org/donate).

Gloria’s funeral Mass and burial will be held privately, due to current COVID-19 restrictions. The Britton-Shrewsbury Funeral Home is honored to be assisting with arrangements.

I have a hole in my heart today, for the loss of my dear friend, Gloria. You endured so much, for so long, but you never lost your smile, your love, your joy, your faith. God gave us a special gift in the way we experienced the world through your eyes. I will miss you until that day we are reunited in the Kingdom of our good and gracious God, once again with our devoted husbands and so many happy friends. My love remains with Donna & Lori, who are like my own children. Thank you, Gloria, for loving my children like they were yours. I'll be thinking of you, every day, my friend. Until we meet again...
