Born October 21, 1941 to the late Bruce and Stella (Czebatoroski) Perrine, Gail grew up on Ballston Lake and graduated from Linton High School. She received her education in accounting from SCCC, and was employed by the NYS Department of Taxation and Finance until her retirement in 2001.
Gail was a caring, supportive and selfless mother and grandmother who cherished her family and always put their needs before her own. She treasured the time spent with her grandchildren and loved attending their school functions and sporting events. She loved the power and the peace of the ocean, and had a particular fondness for Cape Cod, especially in the fall. She enjoyed golfing, baking and traveling with friends and family.
