Noella Faraday Obituary

Dudley - Noella G. (McDonald) Faraday, 83, died Thursday, March 14, 2024, at her home due to declining health.

Noella was born on Christmas Day 1940 in Dudley, MA.  She was the daughter of the late Wilfrid and Annette (Bousquet) McDonald. She leaves behind her longtime caretaker and best friend, Dave Akeley.  She also leaves three brothers: George McDonald of Sturbridge, Richard McDonald and his wife, Sandra, of Charlton, and Roger McDonald and his wife, Linda, of Sturbridge; one sister, Constance Wagner and her husband, Herb, of Webster; two grandsons Michael and David, both of Ohio; a granddaughter, Melony McNeaney, of California; her daughter-in-law, Judy (Petro) Sobieski, of Southbridge; her sister-in-law Rosemary McDonald of Marlborough; and several nieces and nephews.  She is predeceased by her children, Michael Sobieski and Donna Sobieski; her brothers Norman, Lucien, Robert, Raymond, and Roland McDonald; and her sisters, Jeannette Gelineau and Lucille Dronzek.

Noella had a personality that always made people around her laugh, and this was especially true at family reunions held at her home. Noella was very fond of animals, especially her dogs.  She also liked gardening, and playing cards for fun with her family.   Noella also enjoyed gold-mining and prospecting at Herkimer Diamond Mines in Herkimer, New York, traveling, Niagra Falls, horses, ducks, and chickens.  She will surely be missed by all.

There are no calling hours.  Burial in New Notre Dame Cemetery will be private and at the convenience of the family.  Sansoucy Funeral Home, 40 Marcy Street, Southbridge, MA has been entrusted with Noella's private funeral arrangements.
