Judith Ann (Alberghene) Feltus, age 77, of Harvard, died Sunday, July 1, 2018, at St. Vincent Hospital in Worcester. She was the beloved wife of the late Allen R. Feltus, a devoted mother and homemaker, and an avid gardener.
Born August 8, 1940, in Lowell, she was the daughter of the late William G. and Eleanor A. (King) Alberghene. Raised and educated in Billerica, Judith graduated from Billerica High School.
Judy and Allen married and settled in Harvard. Judy worked for many years assisting with the clerical and bookkeeping functions at her husband’s business, Allen’s Garage in Ayer. She was also a tireless gardener, spending endless hours with Allen tending to the vegetable and flower gardens in their yard. She canned jars and jars of tomatoes, beans, and pickles, and served fresh vegetables with dinner all summer long. She also enjoyed many vacations to Canada and was the treasurer and longtime member of the Harvard Snowmobile Club. She worked for Cains in Ayer for some time and for several years at Bob’s Turkey Farm in Lancaster, where she was an important part of many Thanksgiving celebrations. Judy had other lines of work, too, including banking, bookkeeping at Hillside Garage, seasonally picking strawberries at the Evans Farm in Still River, and as a longtime caregiver at St. Benedicts and for family members. She was a busy, productive lady.
She is survived by her son, Peter A. Feltus, and his wife Colleen of Littleton, and Theresa M. May of California, and her grandchildren Jacqueline Feltus, Julia Feltus, Caitlin Feltus, John Feltus, and Charles Foster. She is also survived by her brother, Ernie Alberghene, and his wife Mary of New Hampshire.
