Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

Estelle L. (Liberty) Gozgit, 85, of Chicopee, passed away peacefully on Monday, August 12, 2019 at home. She was born on February 12, 1934 in Chicopee and was the daughter of the late Joseph A. and Ada J. (Senecal) Liberty. Better known to her loved ones as “Tilly,” Estelle Lorraine Gozgit dedicated her life to her family. Guided wholly by her faith, her kids will remember her for her positive outlook on life, her devotion to the Catholic church, and most importantly, her love to laugh. Tilly was inherently funny, making most family get togethers start with, “Did you hear what Tilly just said?” or “Did you see what Tilly just did?” – Followed by an explosion of laughter and ear-to-ear smiles. She will be greatly missed by the family and friends she leaves behind, but her memory will live on through her matter-of-fact advice and timeless hijinks. Besides her parents, she is predeceased by her husband, Alexander J. Gozgit, her brother Fred and sister, Rita. Estelle is survived by three sons, Paul, James and Joseph; five daughters, Jane, Cheryl, Maryann, Carol and Karen and their respective spouses, three sisters, Elaine, Terry and Claire; thirteen grandchildren and seven great grandchildren. Family and friends may attend a Liturgy of Christian Burial on Friday, August 16, 2019 at 10 am at St. Rose de Lima Church, 600 Grattan St. Burial will be in St. Stanislaus Cemetery. There are no calling hours. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Hospice Life Care and VNA, 575 Beech St., Holyoke, MA 01040.
