Gail Sewall1

F, #21863, b. 23 July 1943, d. 25 August 2014
     Gail Sewall was born on 23 July 1943 in Biddeford, Maine.2 She was the daughter of Samuel David Sewall and Audrey Ruby Ostrander.1 Gail Sewall died on 25 August 2014 in Bangor, Maine, at the age of 71.3

SCARBOROUGH - Gail S. Kennett, 71, of Scarborough, passed away in her sleep on August 25, 2014, at a Bangor hospital, after a long illness. She was diagnosed with ALS in 2009 and put up a valiant fight against a truly devastating disease. Despite her declining health, Gail's spirits remained positive and she cherished every moment spent with family and close friends.

Gail was born in Biddeford, Maine on July 23, 1943, the daughter of Samuel and Audrey (Ostrander) Sewall. She grew up in Island Falls, Maine, a town founded by her great-great grandfather, Levi Sewall. Gail graduated from Island Falls High School in 1961 and Farmington State Teachers College in 1965. She taught science at Madison High School in Madison, Maine for two years where she met her husband, John F. Kennett, who taught history. A favorite family story is about Gail refusing John's first date proposal, as she mistook him for a student.

Gail and John were married on April 16, 1967 and lived for a short time in Saco before settling and raising their family in Scarborough. Gail was deeply committed to the community of Scarborough, volunteering in the local schools and as an active member of the First Congregational Church, where she served not only as a Sunday School teacher, but also for a time as Sunday School Superintendent. She became involved in Scarborough's annual Habitat for Humanity Walk, acting as Chairperson for a number of years. Gail also spent many years volunteering for the local chapter of the Alzheimer's Association and founded the first Memory Walk in Maine. She continued to serve as Chairperson of the Scarborough Memory Walk for several years and also helped to start Memory Walks in other areas of the state.

Gail enjoyed spending her summers at the family camp on Mattawamkeag Lake in Island Falls and with friends and family on the beach in Ocean Park. She was known for her exceptional cooking which many people enjoyed at community and church events throughout the years. Gail was especially devoted to her family and friends and will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing her.

Survivors, all of whom loved her dearly include her husband of 47 years, John, son John (Jay) Kennett and his wife Mairi, daughter Allison Conti and her husband Adam, and grandsons Nicholas and Patrick Kennett, all of Scarborough; sister Cheryl Connelly and her husband Peter, of Vero Beach, FL; and nephews James and Peter Connelly. Gail was predeceased by her parents, Samuel and Audrey Sewall, and beloved son Timothy in 1995.3

A Community Leader.
Mr. Sewall was 67 years old. He was born In Virden, Ill., on November 8, 1860, and grew to manhood there. He was graduated from Blackburn university, Carlinville, Ill., with the degree of A.B. in 1883, and three years later was given the degree of A.M. by the same university. Following his graduation, he filled the position of assistant professor of botany in Blackburn university, having specialized in that study. In 1885 he purchased the Virden Reporter, of which he was editor and publisher about fifteen years. He also served a term as postmaster at Virden.
He came to Carthage twenty-seven years ago and became connected with the Carthage Evening Press, of which his brother, W.J. Sewall, is editor and publisher.
He was interested in agricultural and horticultural development in this district, giving much of his time and efforts to both. He founded the Jasper County Boys' Corn Show more than fifteen years ago, conducting it almost single handed until this year. He was president of the Ozark-District Fair Association, relinquishing that position last year because of failing health. He was in charge of the horticulture department last year and was vice president of the fair association at the time of his death. He also was a member of the board of managers of the state fruit experiment station at Mountain Grove, having been appointed to that post by Governor Hyde.
He was active in all civic affairs of the community, often dropping his personal affairs to devote his entire attention to some civic project. He assumed the leading role in the movement for the Memorial Hall here six years ago, working unceasingly under adverse conditions to raise the necessary funds for its construction. He was secretary of the Memorial Hall Association at the lime of his death and was personally in charge of all its affairs, devoting a major portion of his time to the work. He was a Mason, a member of the Lions Club and an active member of the Carthage Chamber of Commerce.
Mr. Sewall was never married. In addition to the brother residing here, he is survived by two sisters, Mrs. H.M. Dubois of Wichita, Kansas, and Mrs. E.E. Dodd of Springfield. Mrs. Dubois is now in a hospital in Wichita with a broken hip and will be unable to attend the funeral. Joplin Globe, 16 November 1926.2
