In the early days of work she met another new hire, Jim Weigel, and the two subsequently joined in a marriage that saw the 57th anniversary celebrated last year. Gail enthusiastically embraced each new location the family saw with changing work assignments, living in New York, West Virginia and Geneva, Switzerland before settling for 20 year in Darien, CT. In 1996 they moved permanently to their beloved spot on the Lake in Tuftonboro where the family had summered since the ‘60s.

Gail had a love of music and nurtured it in her children and grandchildren. During their time in Connecticut, she served on the board of the Young Artists Philharmonic of Stamford, CT.   Gail is survived by her husband James Edward Weigel, 4 children: Jennifer Lee Weigel (Gene Chin) of Lakeville, CT, Kimberly Weigel Coburn (Tad) of Lexington, MA, Mark Charles Weigel (Dyllan McGee) of Waccabuc, NY and Sarah Weigel Farwell (Tobin) of Lee, NH; 2 sisters and their families Patricia and Dave Lee of Mirror Lake, Jacqueline and Tom Rost of Jefferson, MO; 11 grandchildren and a close extended family including many nieces and nephews.   A Memorial Mass will be at 11:00 AM Saturday May 4, at St. Katharine Drexel Church, 40 Hidden Springs Rd., Alton, NH.
