Judith Frasinetti, known to most as Judy, was born May 19, 1944, in Sacramento, California to June De Paepe, deceased, and Vincent Frasinetti, deceased. Judy had three siblings: Sandy Boyer, deceased, Pamela Stoddard (Bruce) and Jeff De Paepe (Kathy) as well as many nieces, nephews, and relatives. Patricia Dussell (Richard) was a very close longtime family friend.,
As a young person, Judy had keen interest and enjoyed outdoor sports, especially skiing. She loved the mountains, nature, and animals. It was evident to all who knew her, that all her life she retained a deep love for her Italian and California roots. It was in Italy that in the 1960s she met the Sisters of Mary Reparatrix, an international community of religious women.
After careful discernment, Judy decided to join the Sisters of Mary Reparatrix on December 24, 1970 in Italy, where she remained until the early 1990s. It was then that she moved to Yonkers, New York and lived and ministered there until her death.
Judy was a gifted woman and was enthusiastic in sharing her faith with persons of all ages and backgrounds. She was particularly interested in technology and was a forerunner in urging religious congregations to learn and integrate technological skills as part of their communication and operating functions. Sister Judy and Sister Gerry McCullagh appreciated and devoted years of collaboration in this ministry with the Sisters of the Devine Compassion in New York.
Judy’s life gave witness to the spirituality of Emile d’Oultremont, d’Hooghvorst, foundress of the Sisters of Mary Reparatrix who said “May the love of Jesus be the soul of your life, the courage of your heart, and the heart of your courage.”
Judy’s funeral liturgy will be celebrated at the Chapel of the Sisters of the Divine Compassion on Saturday, October 8 at 11 am, with a visitation at the chapel at 10:00 am.
Funeral services are under the direction of Ballard-Durand Funeral & Cremation Services , 2 Maple Ave, White Plains, NY 10601.
