Biographical information / Informations biographiques

Gerard and Gabrielle have passed on together after 60 happy years of marriage. In those 60 years they experienced many good times highlighted by the births of each of their 11 children. Both were lifelong communicants of St. Ignatius parish. Gerard served his country in the US Army during WWII and fought in the Battle of the Bulge. He retired from the Portsmouth Naval Ship Yard after many years of service. He played semi pro baseball for the Gendron Lumber Team of the Twilight League. He was well known as one of the top candlepin bowlers in the state. He loved all sports but was above all a Red Sox fan. He would follow them from the first pitch of spring training to the finals of the season.

Gabrielle also attended Sanford schools during her youth. She worked full time in addition to raising her 11 children. Her family was in awe of her many talents. She perfected her seamstress skills through many years of making everything from her children’s clothes to prom dresses and wedding gowns for her daughters and other family members. She made lifelong friends during her tenure as owner and operator of Gabe’s Place Ceramics in Sanford where she taught classes for 27 years. Gabrielle leaves behind an entire family who learned from her over many years that nothing else matters much if you don’t have the love and support from those around you.

Anybody who knew Gerard and Gabrielle would attest, their children and grandchildren were always their #1 priority. One word was always used by the two of them to describe their feelings toward having such a large family to enjoy life with—‘fortunate’. After 60 years of marriage, where Gerard and Gabrielle did almost everything together, it is appropriate that they passed just days apart, so that neither of them will have to spend an extended period of time without each other.1
