Gail Bigoness, age 70, passed away peacefully the morning of Sunday, January 16, 2022.
Gail was born February 19, 1951 in Hartford, CT, and graduated from Glastonbury High class of 1969. Later, she set up a life in Tolland, CT with her husband, Stephen Bigoness. Steve was her childhood sweetheart, soul mate, and husband of 50 years. After being residents of Tolland, CT for over 48 years, Gail & Steve recently moved to Burlington, CT to be close to their daughter & family.
Gail was employed by CL&P for 10 years and later worked at Rockville General Hospital as a volunteer & administrative professional for 13 years. Her favorite part about working at the hospital was being close to people, helping, and caring for them when they needed support. She felt delighted every time they walked away with a smile.
She was a wife, a mother, a Gigi, a sister, and loving & caring friend to so many.
She was an avid gardener for much of her adult life, loved music, tennis, decorating, and a good laugh.
She loved her friends in Niantic where her family had a boat for over 35 years.
The world did not make a better listener. She always wanted to get to know every person she met.
Gail is survived by her husband & best friend, Stephen Bigoness, daughter and son-in-law Sarah & Daniel Telgarsky, her grandsons Jack & Logan Telgarsky, and her brother Glen Threlfall. She was predeceased by her mother, Corrine Larsen. The Loper Family and The Fulton Family had a very special place in her heart. Each of them and their children were considered family to her, spending many vacations, holidays, and memories of a lifetime together.
Her wish was not to have services, rather to have each person in her life remember a moment of happiness they had together that was special and made them smile. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the American Cancer Society.
