Our beloved sister Gail F. Gombatz, 70, was called safely home, after a short illness on Sunday (June 12, 2022). Born and raised in New Britain, the daughter of the late William F. and Katherine (Siry) Gombatz, she lived for many years in Berlin. She was a graduate of St. Thomas Aquinas High School and Morse School of Business and worked as an office manager at Northeast Riggers for many years. She was an active parishioner of St. Paul’s Church, volunteering at St. Clare’s Food Pantry. Gail loved to travel and the beach was her “ happy place”. She loved spending her summer days at Lake Moodus.
She always enjoyed completing puzzles, playing cards and board games with her family and friends. Gail was well known for her amazing party appetizers and all the fun she brought with her. She was also known as a perfectionist in her appearance and in her home. Gail was an avid sports fan and loved her New England sports teams.
Gail was a thoughtful listener and built many lifelong friendships. She was a kind, caring and generous woman. She was a very special Auntie to so many that she loved very much. Gail was always an important part of the lives of all her family and friends. She had a contagious laugh and smile that brought so much joy to those around her. She will be missed dearly, forever and always.
Gail is survived by her sister Linda and her husband Gregory Komer, her brother William and his wife, Leanne Gombatz; her nieces and nephews, Matthew Komer, Alyssa Murphy, Andrew Gombatz, Rachel Gombatz, and Megan Gombatz; her grandnieces and nephews Kayla Murphy, Aliyah Murphy, Alex Komer, Landon Gombatz and Cooper Gombatz.
