It was an honour to have known Gabe and to have shared many laughs. Not only did she teach three of our children, who loved telling stories of what they had done that day, but I was lucky enough to work with her @ St Clare. It was hard not to call her Mrs. Bush because I heard it so much at home! Such a wonderful person. You will be missed.
My deepest, deepest condolences to the family. Gabriella was a very much loved cousin and I will miss her dearly. My love to the entire family and apologies for not being able to attend the funeral. You are all in my prayers!
I will always remember our days at St. Martin’s. We were a tight group of new teachers and newly weds. I was also adjusting to the move from Nova Scotia. Gabe was an immediate friend who made me feel so much better about EVERYTHING.
I am heartbroken!
I was very saddened to hear of Gabe's passing. She was an amazing person and outstanding teacher. As a student at St Martins (Grade7 and 8), GABE TAUGHT US French and established a wonderful rapport with many of my friends. I will always remember Gabe asking us to pray (in French of course) for Carmen when he wrote his law exams! When we went to Quebec City, Gabe supervised and we nicknamed her "Granny Bush" and gave her a wooden carving of a lady in a rocking chair! We loved her as our special teacher and actually attended her wedding in Toronto! It was with great pleasure that I began teaching with Dufferin Peel and reconnected with Gabe many years later. We would often cross paths at conferences or PA Days and most recently, she and I had a wonderful conversation at a Retired Teachers luncheon. She shared her pride in her family and was eager to hear about mine.We never forgot one another and I will never forget special memories of Gabe and feel blessed to have known her. I know she made an everlasting memory in the hearts of all who knew her and will forever be missed.
I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Gabriela. She was an awesome teacher. She always was encouraging and supportive to peers. I extend my prayers to her family. May our Risen Lord watch over you all and support you through this difficult time. She was a spark of light to all who knew her.
