The Life of Gail Ann-Marie Reyes
Gail Ann-Marie Reyes was born in Trinidad on November 22, 1955 to Theresa Antoine and Kenneth Antoine. She was the first of three children. As a young girl, Gail attended Holy Name Convent Secondary School in Port of Spain, Trinidad. She was active in school events such as tennis and singing on the school chorus. She was even part of the choir, Goretti Group & Dixieland, that successfully recorded an album entitled "Sing Out My Soul".
In 1976, she met Ray Reyes of Santa Cruz. They were blessed with three children - Vanessa, Andre and Randy. She always strived to teach them to be strong, independent and hard working. Something they carry on to their children today. Apart from her children, she gave advice to other young people she met, giving them sound advice on life, saving for the future and the importance of family.
After migrating to the United States in 1993, she worked at Independence/Santander Bank for 24 years as a Personal Banker. She was known by all for her straight forward, no nonsense approach, and very private.
Her family meant everything to her. Affectionatley called "Gramma" by her grand children, she spent most of her free time enjoying her grand children. They enjoyed eating all the dishes from Trinidad, and their music.
Gail leaves behind her loving husband, Ray, her daughter, Vanessa and two sons, Andre and Randy, and 7 grand children - Jaden, Christian, Isabella, Nyiah, Hailey, Joshua and Riley.
She will be dearly missed.
