She was an accomplished artist and decorator, and a lover of music, animals and nature. All who knew her will miss her wry sense of humor, good nature, gentleness and wonderful smile.

Gabriel, Jr. (Lee) and Nicholas Gabriel (Jean), daughters Jane Schnier (Brian), Eleanor Kiunke (Ty), Marianne Conway (Tom) and Amie Gabriel, 10 grandchildren and 7 great-grand children, and her brother, Gerald Magee.
