Gloria Faye Gagne

Gloria Faye Gagne, age 87 of Cheshire, joined her family and friends in Heaven on Sunday, October 9, 2022.  She was the devoted wife of the late Achille “Pete” Gagne Jr. for 40 years until his passing in 1992.  Gloria was born on December 22, 1934 at home in Somerville, MA, daughter of the late Harold “Shorty” and Dorothy “Dolly” (Richardson) Rivers.

She and Pete met while he was still serving in the US Navy in Boston and were married in 1952.  Soon after, they moved to Meriden, eventually settling in Cheshire and began their life and family together, raising three children.  Gloria loved her family and friends dearly, and was happiest when hosting may holiday dinners and celebrations.  She was a sun loving beachgoer and spent almost 50 years at her summer home on Onset Beach in Cape Cod. 

Gloria is the beloved mother of Craig Gagne Sr. and his partner, Eileen Costello of Cheshire; and Mark Gagne and his wife, Colleen of Buzzards Bay, MA.  She was predeceased by her beautiful daughter, Michelle Faye Gagne in 1985.  Gloria had many cherished grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and will be missed by all.

Gloria’s family would like to extend their sincerest gratitude to the staff of Abbott Terrace in Waterbury, as well as Vitas Healthcare for their kind and compassionate care.
