Gail R. (Brooks) Johnson, 72, of Sturbridge, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, October 7, 2020 with her loving family by her side.

She leaves her devoted husband of 52 years, Bruce D. Johnson, of Sturbridge; her beloved children, Amy-Margaret Castellano and her husband, Brian, of Auburn, and Adam Johnson and his wife, Kelly, also of Auburn; her precious grandchildren, Brooke and Nathan Castellano, Emma and Ryan Johnson; her sisters, Elizabeth Sullivan, of Fitzwilliam, NH, and Laurie Mullett, of North Swanzey, NH; as well as many nieces and great-nieces, nephews and great-nephews, cousins and close friends.

In her free time, she enjoyed antiquing, knitting, playing cards, and watching her grandchildren participate in their many sporting events, but most of all, Gail cherished her time relaxing at her cottage on Laurel Lake in Fitzwilliam, NH.

I had the pleasure of knowing Gail from time at Laurel Lake. For many years she would happily sit out on the lake in their boat while Bruce fished for hours. As Adam and Amy had their children, more time was spent on the beach, enjoying watching the grandchildren playing & swimming. I'm so happy they got to know their grandmother & enjoy time with her, at least for a while. Her sense of humor and joyous laughter will be missed. Bruce, Adam & Amy: I hope your many happy memories of Gail will ease some of the pain you are feeling right now.

Gail was a great friend and mentor to me when I started at women’s health back in 2007
I was raising 2 small children at that time, alone. I attribute how well both of them turned out partly to the great advice Gail gave me for many years we worked side by side. she was a intelligent and compassionate woman whom will always have a special place in my heart

I met & continued to work with Gail at Women's Health of Central MA for many years. We shared lunch time and walks to enjoy fresh air and each others company. Gail's positive attitude and sense of humor were always welcome. After we moved to UT, Gail & I kept up our connection via marathon phone calls and enjoyed visits with Gail & Bruce whenever we returned to MA. I will miss Gail forever. Our heartfelt sympathy goes to Bruce and the whole family.
