HOPEWELL JUNCTION - Gina Marie Brien, 63, an area resident since 1982, died on May 31, 2019 at New York Presbyterian – Hudson Valley Hospital Center, following a courageous seven-year battle with Glioblastoma Multiforme.

Born on October 30, 1955 in the Bronx, Gina was the daughter of Dolores “Tiki” (Conforti) Masiello and the late Michael Masiello. Gina has been employed by Iron Mountain in Poughkeepsie, and she enjoyed kickboxing.

On August 2, 1997 at the Pirate Canoe Club, Gina married James Brien who survives at home. In addition to her husband and mother, Gina is survived by her children and their spouses, David King, Daniel and Megan King, Gabrielle and Tim O’Brien, and Raquel Brien; and her grandchildren, Dylan, Brendan, Ava and Nolan. She was predeceased by her brother, Michael Masiello.

From Gina’s close friend: “Yesterday the world lost one of the greatest women ever to live on this little green rock. My former co-worker, confidant, amazing friend, and all around one of the strongest and most amazing woman in the world, Gina Masiello Brien. I owe her more than these simple words can convey, and whether it be our looong talks about food, movies, me seeking parenting advice, or even just talking smack about our co-workers, I will miss her with every drop of my shriveled black heart. She was old school, in the BEST possible way. True to her word, loyal, no BS – Gina had no time for nonsense. But, at the same time, she was a big kid in a grownup body. She loved her family and I know for a fact that there was NOTHING she wouldn’t have done for them. She was a lioness to her core. Everything in my heart goes out to Jim and the kids…”

There will be a celebration of Gina’s life on Saturday, June 22, 2019 at their home from 11am until the cows come home. Arrangements are under the direction of the McHoul Funeral Home, Inc. Please visit Gina’s Book of Memories at

My dearest friend Gina was a joy. When she smiled, it lit up the world. No matter what she was dealing with, she always sounded joyful. Her biggest joy was her family; her husband, her children and her grandchildren. I will miss my friend very much, we raised our little ones together, they were a blessing to us both. Gina was a wonderful woman with a kind and caring heart.

We convey our condolences to her family, and send all our love at this difficult time.

From Ani Antreasyan and family.

Remembering all the good times we had. Mike and I, even before we played in bands together, were close growing up and we had lots of sleepovers at each other's houses. When I was at Mike's, he and I and Gina would be up half the night cracking jokes. And it was Gina who took Mike and me to see Led Zeppelin in 1973.

Gina had such a beautiful spirit. Her kindness and infectious laugh will never be forgotten. She leaves behind a legacy in her children and grandchildren that will keep her alive for generations to come.

I am incredibly saddened at the loss of my childhood friend and "cousin-in-law." But mostly for her husband, children, grandchildren and especially Tiki. I pray the Lord grant us all peace and comfort during this time of mourning.

And I take great solace in knowing, in the Lord's appointed time, we will all be reunited.

I am so sorry for your loss. Gina was a wonderful woman, with a heart of gold. Her laugh was infectious, and I’ll never forget our childhood memories. Though most of the time she was ditching us for the older kids. Lol Please know that you are in my thoughts at this difficult time. Sending you and your beautiful family all my love.

The loss of a loved one causes so much pain and grief. It is at a time like this we appreciate the love of family and friends to comfort us. May your family and friends be there for you in the days, weeks and months ahead of you. Find strength and hope also in the promises found at Daniel 12:2; Acts 9:36-41 and Revelation 21:3-5
