Gail was born in Northampton, MA on July 10, 1947 the daughter of Walter J. Sr, and Anna W. Sierminski Zawacki. Gail graduated from Easthampton High School in 1965 and attended Quinnipiac and Miami Dade Colleges. She made her home in Westfield in 1978 and was employed with Mestek Inc. as Sr. Accounts Payable Clerk for 22 years.

Throughout the years Gail always kept in touch with her ex-husband and in-laws. The kindness and thoughtfulness shared between family were truly special.


Gail enjoyed living in Westfield and the surrounding community. She was a very strong, healthy and spiritual woman. Gail was passionate about reading, gardening and adored her grandchildren tremendously. She loved being outside on warm summer days and collecting shells at the beach.


Gail’s strong spirit, wisdom and giving nature will be missed by all of those who knew her.  She could always be depended on for advice and guidance during good times and bad. She had the most beautiful smile and genuine laugh that will always be remembered.
