Gail Frances Duggan passed after a short illness in Cedar Grove where she resided recently.
Gail was born in Teaneck, NJ and was raised in Bogata until she moved to Lake Hopatcong as a teenager. She lived at the lake most of her life thereafter.
Gail is survived by her son Michael D. Seymour, Sr., grandson Michael D. Seymour, Jr., and great-grandson Brendon Carroll.
Gail was a devoted mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She worked hard and sacrificed for us. Whether it was working a 3-11 factory job or cleaning houses to provide.
Earlier in life she was an avid bowler and bowled on many teams. One I recall being The Mixed Nuts. :)
