Alison Gail Storm passed away peacefully on February 17th, 2020.  Gail grew up in Hanover, MA, and attended Mary Washington College and Boston University’s School of Communications.  Her interests and abilities focused around family, friends and art. These interests led her to many different organizations over the years, the League of Women Voters, theatre troops, Norwell’s Conservation Commission and Historical Society, NEHGS/Mayflower Descendants, and HSEAD painting guild, to name a few.  She wrote beautiful Calligraphy, and painted skillfully in several specialized mediums.  She had an artful hand that learned how to weave, spin and dye wool.  She was an amazing seamstress, great with Halloween costumes, a quick alteration, ballgowns and even a wedding dress.

A seasoned traveler, she and Dad had countless adventures with friends all over the globe. She enjoyed cooking and entertaining for friends and family; especially afternoon coffee with Lynn, Pat and Sarah.   She found pleasure in watching the birds in the yard, gardening, and reading the latest mystery novel with the companionship of one of many dogs or cats in her lap.

Her mind was well exercised with all kinds of information.  She was our Google and could either answer outright or point us in the direction to find the answer to what we were looking for.  Champion at Scrabble or Trivial Pursuit, no one won much of anything betting against her. 

Alzheimer’s disease may have kept her from the vast repository of information of a life well lived, but she never lost her sense of humor or the ability to find joy in her family and friends. She will be dearly missed.

Gail is survived by her husband of 58 years John Storm, daughters Heather Storm and Holly Little, son Stephen Dolan, sisters Jo-Ellen Wood and Susan Duran, and four grandchildren. 

A private memorial service will be announced for this summer.
