Gail Louise Willis

  • BORN: June 20, 1939
  • DIED: August 30, 2017
  • LOCATION: Deep River, Connecticut

On August 30, 2017 our beloved wife and mother, Gail Louise Willis, after a lengthy illness stepped from her home in Deep River, CT into the presence of her Lord whom she had come to know and love. We are certain that though she and her beloved husband, George, missed celebrating their 60th anniversary by three days, she is now whole and celebrating her life in Heaven, eagerly looking forward to her family's future arrival. Born on June 20, 1939 in Worcester, MA, to Sidney E. and Evelyn S. Horton (Sunne), she spent her growing up years in Shrewsbury, MA and on Webster Lake, where she met the love of her life, mischievously removing the gas line from her boat so that he would come to her rescue. They raised four children in whom they delighted: Arlene (Ted) Tencza; Diane (Mike) Eggert; Deborah (Rick) Nelson; and Susan (Michael) Tate. Thirteen grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren also mourn her passing. Gail will always be remembered for her tender heart towards all living things. She delighted in her family, horses, and the many rescue dogs and cats she adopted over the years. She was never happier than when she was in their presence, or caring for the gardens and home she loved. She was rich in friendships, born out of her years in the CT Morgan Horse Association, volunteering at both Glenwood and Deep River Elementary schools, 25 years as a dispatcher at the Madison Police Department, and attending Valley Bible Evangelical Free Church in Haddam, CT. Even towards the end of her life, she made instant friends wherever she went. A Memorial Service in her honor will be held on Saturday, October 7th at 2:00 in the afternoon at Valley Bible Evangelical Free Church, 220 Turkey Hill Road, Haddam, CT. All are welcome to celebrate a life well lived. Donations may be made in her honor to Branford Compassion Club, 2037 Foxon Road, North Branford, CT 06471. To share a memory of Gail or send a condolence to her family please visit Arrangements by the Robinson, Wright & Weymer Funeral Home in Centerbrook.
