Gail was predeceased by her husband, Donald Guy Cornish in 1993.

A graduate of Natick High School, Gail was trained as a bookkeeper and specialized in legal bookkeeping.  She supported  multiple firms and attorneys in the Metrowest and Greater Boston area, many whom she worked with for more than 20 years. She remained actively working until late 2017.
