Gail Conneely

Gail Conneely (McRaven), age 54; beloved wife of Sean; loving mother of Amanda Blair, loving daughter of Carol and the late GB Watkins and Richard Butterworth; cherished Gaga of Gianna; dear sister to Dawn Wilson, Jason (Eunsung) McRaven, Eric (Lisette) Butterworth, Danny (Amanda) Butterworth, Tom (Melanie) Watkins, and George (Lisa) Watkins Jr.; amazing sister-in-law to Michael (Kristin) Conneely, Mary Margaret (Bill) MacFadyen, and Thomas (Shirley) Conneely; spectacular aunt to many including Christi, Paige, Colman, Morgan, Jillian, Liam, Fiona, Caidyn and Colm.

Lifelong friend and sister from another mister of the Bitch and Wine crew: Allyson, Jackie, Janet, Laila, Susan Traci, and Maria. She touched the lives of so many, it was truly an honor to know her and call her a friend. She loved life and her fur babies: Mikey, Chuck, Coby, Abby, Lucy, Gigi and Oki. She was passionate about music, gardening, animal organizations especially PAWS, but most importantly spending time with Gianna. Her loss will be felt immensely by many.
