Gail Phyllis Amerine Obituary
Gail Phyllis Amerine

AGE: 78 •

Gail Phyllis (Smith) Amerine peacefully passed on Easter, April 16th.

Gail was born in Perth Amboy, New Jersey on June 22nd, 1938. She attended St. Mary High School in Perth Amboy where she met her dear best friends who would be her family for the rest of her life.

Gail attended University of Miami, before beginning her career with the New Jersey Jaycees. She then moved across the country to California to work for the Chamber of Commerce. It was here that Gail married and had a daughter.

Gail eventually left the West Coast, driving her MG cross country back to New Jersey where she held executive titles at Kramer Guitar's in Neptune, NJ and Seashore Fruit and Produce in Atlantic City, NJ.

Gail loved to travel the world, especially her yearly excursion to Bermuda with her daughter. She also loved solving the NY Times crossword and was a fine jazz vocalist earlier in life. But the greatest loves of her life were Jennifer and Jack, her high-spirited nine-year-old grandson.

It is impossible to sum up a life like Gail's in a few paragraphs. The things she loved, how much she cared about people, her strength and determination in raising her daughter, her wit, the many friends she collected along the way. Those who knew her understand what an amazing and unique person she was. She certainly will be missed by all.

Gail is survived by her half-sister Terry, Daughter, Jennifer, her son-in-law Jeff, Grandson Jack, nieces Veronica and Paula and many close friends.
