Gael A. Shaughnessy, 63, of Medway, MA passed away unexpectedly on May 5th 2020 in the presence of her 2 sons. Gael was born in Boston, MA on October 13, 1956 and was raised in West Roxbury, MA. She was predeceased by her husband, Paul W Shaughnessy.
Gael is survived by her two loving sons, Paul Shaughnessy and his wife Samantha of Wrentham, MA and Darren Shaughnessy of Medway, MA. She also leaves behind her grandchildren, Aiden and Sofia Shaughnessy of Wrentham, MA. As well as her extended family and many friends.
Gael was a devoted mother, grandmother, nurse, and friend. She was a nurse at the Hebrew Rehab Center for 30 plus years and most recently at Medway Country Manor. She devoted her life to caring for others.
She spent her free time with her family, loving the sun and outdoors, helping to raise her grandchildren and caring for her dogs and cat. She was our hero, the strongest person we have even known, and could never be replaced. She will be greatly missed by all. A memorial gathering will be held at a later date.

Dear PJ and Darren,

We are so very sorry to hear about your Mom. She was much too young to leave this way.

Gael was lovely and had an admirable gentle toughness. We have great memories of her at your baseball games, especially summer travel (with Peter Shea). No doubt she was your biggest fan. She set the bar for single Moms raising boys, doing a great job with you.

Again, we would like to offer our deepest sympathies during this heartbreaking time. Please reach out if you need anything.

Mr. and Mrs. Mike O’Reilly

Dear PJ, Darren, Samantha, Aiden & Sofia
My heart aches for each of you.
I write this with great sadness over the loss of my dear friend Gael. As the years have gone by Gael had become an amazing part of my family and a close friend. Gael was a loving and devoted Mother to PJ and Darren, putting them first always. Her love for family was a priority-PJ, Darren, Samantha and grandchildren Aiden & Sofia were at the top of her list. Gael was always so proud of each of them and loved sharing stories.
I have so many wonderful and fond memories of the vacations, holidays, shopping trips and long talks we shared. Gael will be greatly missed.
When we love, it’s so comforting to know Gael will always be with us in our hearts. Rest In Peace my friend. Love Lynda

Thoughts, hugs and prayers from my family to yours.
I've learned so much from your mom. Her smile too, though... much love.

Sending my sincere condolences to Gael's family and friends. We worked together in Newton. I will always remember her for her nursing skills, but mostly for her fierce pride and love for her family. May she rest in peace.

Gigi. Ever since May 5th, 2020, things will never be the same. You were always there for me and always have shown kindness, compassion, love, and nothing but the best for me during the past twelve amazing years. You always have put others wellbeings before your own. You were an amazing grandmother and best friend to me. You were the toughest person I have ever known and you have gone through so much during your life and everyone including myself will always be proud. I will always remember all the summers together, all the sleepovers together, all the years together, and all the wonderful memories together. Out of all the Gigi’s in the world, I am sure I had the best one. Rest in peace Gigi. Love, Aiden.
