Our beloved Birdie passed away in the comforting care of the Abraham House with her loved ones by her side on February 26, 2018.

Alberta was born in Utica on August 30, 1942, one of three daughters born to the late Dewey and Helen (Sczesny) Casatelli. She was educated in Utica schools and a graduate of TR Proctor High School. On September 12, 1964, Birdie was joined in marriage to William J. Brittelli. Birdie and Bill shared thirty-eight loving years, living and raising their family here in Utica. Her beloved Bill passed away at an early age on March 29, 1998 and she remained devoted to his memory right to the end.

Alberta was a bookkeeper and office manager, who worked for many years with her dad and husband at Casatelli Electric, until it’s closing in 1993. She continued her career with family friend, Angelo Nole, running the office at George A. Nole and Son Inc., for many years.

Birdie was one of the sweetest people you could ever meet; she always handled herself with dignity and class, especially during her long struggle with Ovarian Cancer. She was a devoted and loving mother, grandmother, sister, and friend, who was always there when needed.

She will be sadly missed by her daughter and son-in-law, Michele and Larry Goldberg, of Longmeadow, MA; her son and daughter-in-law, William and Bridgette Brittelli, of Mt. Pleasant, SC; her adored grandchildren, Billy and Bianca Brittelli, and Brandon and Josh Goldberg; her two sisters and brothers-in-law, Angela and Anthony Andreone, of FL and Jane and Thomas Hagerty, of Whitesboro; a sister-in-law, Beverly Freshour; and also many nieces, nephews, and friends, including special nephews, Tom and Michelle Hagerty, Mark Hagerty, Adam and Abby Hagerty; close friends, David and Joanne Hathaway, Mary Ann and Carl Biancardi; a very special Goddaughter, who was always there for her, Luann Biancardi; and also special mention of her canine companion, “Muffin”. She was predeceased by her husband, parents, and her mother-in-law and father-in-law, Orlando and Santina Brittelli.

Relatives and friends are invited to attended her Mass of Christian Burial on Wednesday, February 28th at 10:30 a.m. at St. Anthony and St. Agnes Church. Private interment will be in Calvary Cemetery. There are no calling hours, but the family will receive visitors following mass.

The family cannot express in words their deepest gratitude to everyone involved at Hospice and Palliative Care, especially, Ann and the Abraham House. The comforting care and compassion shown to not only their mom, but also to them, will never be forgotten. She couldn’t have been in a better place. All the caregivers were an extension of the family and in recognition of this, please consider any memorial contribution in Alberta’s memory to the Abraham House, to help fund this wonderful organization.

I met Alberta through Angelo Nole and she was such a sweet person. I was in her company several times and always found her to be very pleasant and always courteous. Prayers to the family during this difficult time.
