Gayle Elizabeth Keene, 76, of Chelmsford, MA passed away unexpectedly Sunday, July 9, 2023 at Tufts Medical Center, Boston, MA.

Some things that she loved most were the color purple, visiting the beaches in Maine, and above all else spending time with her family.

    May the next part of your journey be swift, smooth, and serene. I’m sure the Pearly Gates are already open, awaiting your arrival! I treasure our times together and the stories we shared. Hopefully, someone will find and finish your current crocheting projects and publish the book of poems you wrote. Until we meet again . . .
