WILMINGTON, MA — Carla Giangregorio, of Wilmington, passed away peacefully at her home, surrounded by those she loved, on March 21, 2018. She was 58 years of age. She was the beloved wife of Kathleen E. Delaney. Born in Worcester, she was the cherished daughter of the late Carlo and Josephine (Bonanno) Giangregorio.
Carla was raised and educated in Wilmington and was a 1977 graduate of Wilmington High School. Carla dedicated herself to the care of animals with a career that lasted more than 40 years. She most recently worked as the Grooming Manager at the DogSpa in Beverly, MA. Her knowledge of and expertise in pet nutrition, grooming and products provided a vast education to colleagues, clients and friends. Whether she was handling a show dog, grooming a family cat, managing a kennel, educating someone about an appropriate diet of product for their pet, or taking care of her own four-legged children, Carla’s focus was on treating all animals with respect. Her enthusiasm was contagious. She would get excited over a new treat or toy and before long, anyone within earshot would feel the same.
Carla also loved gardening, spending time by the water, whether the lake or the ocean. She was extremely devoted to her family and friends and always looked forward to the next Sunday brunch or the next trip where she could enjoy a good tour. She will fondly be remembered for laugh that filled the room, her warm heart that was and still is a source of great comfort for those close to her.
In addition to her beloved wife Kathleen, Carla is lovingly survived by her brother, Joseph Giangregorio and his wife Pamela of Wilmington. She was the Godmother of Maya Giangregorio of Fairfax, VA and is also survived by many loving brother and sisters’ in-law, nieces and nephews.
Family and friends are respectfully invited to attend visiting hours at the Dello Russo Family Funeral Home, 374 Main St., WILMINGTON, Sunday, March 25th, from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. with a prayer service starting at 5:30 p.m.
