Gemma Sayree Bhisitkul, aged 12, died on July 1, 2023, at her home in Southborough, MA. Gemma was born to her parents Thomas and Jacqueline Bhisitkul on July 22, 2010. Gemma had very complicated medical conditions that limited her ability to move and live independently, but she made the most of her abilities during her life. She had a bright smile and charismatic personality, and was loved deeply by her family, friends and the many caregivers whose lives she touched.
Gemma loved Disney movies and her favorite movie and TV-show characters, and delighted in having books read to her. Her sweet personality made her popular among the teachers and therapists in her special education class at Assabet Valley Collaborative in Southborough. Though her life was cut short, her family cherishes her memory and the happy times they had with her. Gemma is survived by her parents, Thomas and Jacqueline, her sisters Amelia, Sonia and Alexa, her grandmother Catherine Bhisitkul, and a large and loving extended family of aunts, uncles, cousins, and family friends.
Visitation hours for Gemma will be held on Friday, July 7, 2023, from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., at the Morris-Johnston Funeral Home at 40 Main Street in Southborough, MA. A funeral Mass will be held on Saturday, July 8, 2023, at 11:00 a.m. at St. Anne Church, 20 Boston Road in Southborough, MA. Private family burial will follow at the Southborough Rural Cemetery, 11 Cordaville Road, Southborough, MA.
