Michelle Marie (Gagnon) Costello

Devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and sister;

Michelle Marie (Gagnon) Costello, 73, of Quechee, Vermont, but formerly of Lowell and Andover, Massachusetts, passed away on April 2, 2024, at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center surrounded by her adoring family.

She was the beloved wife for over 44 years of Andrew G. Costello of Quechee, Vermont (and formerly Lowell and Andover, MA), who survives her.

Born in Lowell, MA, June 14, 1950, the daughter of the late Antonio and the late Loretta (Gagnon) Gagnon, she attended the Academy of Notre Dame in Tyngsboro, MA, and later received her Bachelors Degree in Education from Rivier College in Nashua, New Hampshire.

Michelle was an Elementary School teacher at the Franco-American School in Lowell, MA, and later a full-time loving mother of her 6 children.

Amongst her many interests, Michelle enjoyed tennis, skiing, hiking, cooking, gardening, and traveling. She loved dogs and above all else, she enjoyed making countless memories with her husband, children, and grandchildren. She was known by friends and family to be kind, selfless, charming, and beautiful inside and out.

Besides her husband, she is survived by a daughter: Victoria Cooper and her husband Dan of Wakefield, MA; four sons Anthony Costello and his wife Ashley of Byfield, MA, Joseph Costello of Bolton, VT, William Costello of Nashua, NH, and Stephen Costello of Essex Junction, VT; five grandchildren Tommy, Charlie, Rose, Emilia, and Madelyn; two sisters Olivia Breton and her husband Richard of Dover, NH, Denise Jusczak and her husband Jimmy of Pelham, NH; she is also survived by a brother Dennis Gagnon and his wife Theresa of Barnstead, NH and a sister-in-law Danielle Gagnon of Lowell, MA.; many nieces and nephews

She was the mother of the late Andrew G. Costello, Jr. and the sister of the late Tony Gagnon and Richard Gagnon.

The family would like to recognize the extraordinary care and selflessness of her son,  Stephen Costello, during her most trying of times. Putting his family before himself is something he learned from his mother.

Friends may call at the O’DONNELL FUNERAL HOME 276 PAWTUCKET ST. in Lowell on Thursday, April 11, 2024, from 4:00 to 8:00 P.M. Private Funeral Services will be held for the family. E-condolences/directions at http://www.odonnellfuneralhome.com.
