of Natick, passed peacefully on May 10th 2021. Surrounded by family at her bedside including her caregiver Mary Obiero, an angel and blessing to our family. We cannot thank her enough for her unconditional care and spiritual guidance during our mother’s illness. Beloved mother of Renee Murphy and her husband Adam of Hopkinton and Jennifer Hartley and her husband Jeffrey of Framingham. Devoted daughter of the late Dr. Edward Zullo and Michaeline (DiGregorio). Dear sister of Loretta Presutti and her husband David of Natick, Edward Zullo and his wife Carol of Falmouth, and Celeste Palaza and her late husband Paul of FL. Loving grandmother of Madison, Avery, and Seamus Murphy, and Bryson Sanchez. Aunt of Edward “Eddie” Zullo, Marco and Danielle Palaza. Also survived by her beloved grand-dog Bambi and many loving friends in her living community. Additional gratitude goes out to Ellie Ferreira, faithful care giver to Christine for her energetic and determined spirit.
She attended Academy of the Assumption (Elizabeth Seton Regional High School) Wellesley, MA and St. Elizabeth’s School of Nursing in Brighton, MA. Christine was devoted. She cared deeply for her family and friends. She was an amazing sounding board allowing all to share their joys, sorrows, heartaches and confessions. She did this not out of obligation, but because of who she was. Those who knew her were truly blessed to have her in their lives. She had a passion for animals, beginning at Winona Farm where she was an equestrian and continuing on to her father’s veterinary clinic in Natick where she worked for 15 years as an office manager. She made a house a home to many stray animals in her lifetime. Later in life she took much pride in donating monthly to a local Animal medical fund. Christine also had a passion for fitness. In her younger years she was a faithful member of the Long Fellow Sports Club where she was continuously “member of the month.”
A Graveside Service will be held on Saturday, May 29th in the Saint Tarcisius Cemetery, Winthrop St, Framingham at 11:30am. Relatives and friends are kindly invited to attend. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Christine may be made to: The Town of Milford: AMAF (Animal Medical Assistance Fund) 52 Main Street Milford, MA 01757.
