Gail Wilson Gibson
January 12, 1936 – March 26, 2020
Gail W. Gibson passed away peacefully on March 26, 2020, surrounded by her loving family. She was a resident of Brewster & Harwich for 52 years. She was born in Jamaica, New York in 1936 and spent her early life in St. Albans, New York; as a young woman she modeled for the DebuTogs clothing line. She later attended Long Beach City College in California, and then moved to Boston, marrying David A. Gibson in 1957. Gail and David raised three daughters, who provided them with 5 beautiful granddaughters, to their great delight.
Over her 84 years, Gail was an active member of many local organizations, including the Brewster Rescue Squad, Unity of Cape Cod, and the Nauset Regional School Committee. Christ Church Episcopal, Harwichport, played a central role in her life, and her devotion to her fellow parishioners was one of her great joys; one of the highlights of her life was a trip to the Dominican Republic to build houses with Habitat for Humanity. For many years, Gail was a successful small business owner, working as the principal interior designer of Interior Balance. Her siblings, her children and their partners, grandchildren, and grand pets helped make her life full and rewarding.
Gail was predeceased by her husband David in 2010, and is survived by her children and their husbands, Ellie and Mark Garvey of Concord, Chris and Charles Price of Concord, and Jenny and Ladd Kautz, of Antrim, N.H.; as well as her grandchildren, Katie Price of Concord,, Beckie Price of Chicago, Ill., Meghan Garvey of Boston; Emma Rioux of Plymouth and Julia Rioux of Harwich. Gail is also survived by her beloved sister and brother in law, Judy and Dick Galligan of Brewster, with whom she joyfully lived for the last three years of her life. She is survived by her brother Jack Wilson of Medfield,, her dear friend and sister-in-law Betty Damon of Acton and many, many loving nieces, nephews and cousins.
In lieu of flowers, the family welcomes memorial donations to Habitat for Humanity of Cape Cod, and Christ Church Episcopal in Harwichport. A celebration of Gail’s life will be held at a future date.
