Obituary of Gail Fabian
Gail (Clark) Fabian, 81, of Wethersfield, beloved wife for 58 years of Roger Fabian, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 11, 2022 after a brief battle with leukemia. Born in White Plains, NY on October 5, 1940, she was the daughter of the late Major Taylor Clark and Marion Josephine (Keating) Clark. After marrying her kindergarten sweetheart, Gail and Roger moved to Wethersfield in the 1960s, where she worked for many years as a paraprofessional in the Wethersfield School District. She often could be found walking Old Wethersfield with her faithful companion Jack, ensuring she stayed current with all neighborhood happenings. Gail enjoyed spending her summers with family and friends in Indian Cove, Guilford, walking the Cove chatting with neighbors and planting vibrant flowers. She enjoyed painted and traveling and will be missed by her friends in Aruba, where Roger and she visited every year for over 25 years. Traveling with members of Metal Treating Institute, who became their lifelong friends, Gail and Roger saw all corners of the country, leaving them with great stories and fond memories. Gail was a classic social butterfly, either hosting or attending parties, well dressed and in her favorite shade of lipstick. She was an active member of the Wethersfield Garden Club and the Wethersfield Historical Society, as well as a generous supporter of many other philanthropic groups. A loving wife, mother and grandmother, Gigi will be forever missed by her devoted husband Roger; two daughters, Jill Fabian of Wethersfield and Beth Nesteriak and husband Bryan of Seymour and their two adored daughters Emma and Sara, who brought her so much joy. She is also survived by her brother, Donn Clark and wife Christine of Brookfield, as well as many extended family members and friends. Special thanks to the staff at Hughes Health & Rehabilitation of West Hartford for their loving care during her short stay. The family will receive friends and relatives on Friday, May 20 from 4-6 p.m. at the D’Esopo Funeral Chapel, 277 Folly Brook Boulevard, Wethersfield. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, May 21 at 10:30 a.m. at First Church of Christ, 250 Main Street, Wethersfield. Everyone is asked to meet directly at the church. Burial will follow in Village Cemetery, Wethersfield. Donations in Gail’s memory may be made to the Guilford Land Conservation Trust (GLCT), P.O.
