We'll always remember Gaby's zest for life and strong loyalty to family. Just last March, Donald and Thomas witnessed this first hand when visiting her in Wilmington and finding her spirit undimmed, and her continuing energy fuelled by a determination to live life to the full. We'll all miss her a lot.

I’ll very much miss my Aunt Gaby, she was someone could face adversity and look to the positive. She was a talented pattern maker, having worked in London fashion houses, from a designer's drawing, she would transfer the design to muslin into a dress pattern. She made a dress for Mrs. Dempsey for the govenor's iaugural ball. I was lucky enough to be taught by my aunt to sew on her old-fashioned electric sewing machine. On one of our many moves back and forth from Europe, we stayed with my aunt, uncle and cousins and in spite of a full household, she made us feel at home. She was truly one of a kind.

Her legacy is a testament to her perservence, sacrifice, dignity, and positive spirit after having endured so much in one of the most horrific times in our world's history! May the world never forget she and all of the others, who sacrificed, suffered, and lost thier loved ones, in very desperate and tumultuous times. Our deepest sympathy to the family.
