Emily (Russo) Gichel, 96, a resident of Buzzards Bay, died peacefully at Royal Cape Cod Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Buzzards Bay on Saturday, November 30, 2019 surrounded by her loving family. She was the wife of the late Chester Gichel for 67 years. Daughter of the late Emilio and Antoinetta (Todesco) Russo, she was born in Hingham and raised in Stoughton.
