After graduating from Hawley High School, she attended East Stroudsburg Teachers College to study education, eventually accepting a teaching position at Deerfield School District on Long Island.

Other interests included basketball, gardening, card games, travel, and family. She was a generous and loving mother. Gail will be remembered for her engaging personality and spirited conversation and storytelling abilities. A friend to all. Gail and David were faithful attendees of the annual Hawley High School multi-class reunions. She continued making the yearly trip to join her High School friend even after David's loss. She will be missed by her many Hawley friends. She is predeceased by her parents Charles and Lilian (O'Hara), brothers Walter, Douglas, Richard, and Edward, foster sister Mae (Lory), and loving husband David.
