Gail S. Eaton

AUBURN – Gail S. Eaton, 64, passed away on May 29, 2023, in one of her favorite places, New Hampshire, with her loving husband of 45 years and her children by her side. Her battle with cancer showed her strength and courage as she fought through her sickness. She will always be remembered for being positive and happy with a smile for everyone. She lived her life with a close spiritual relationship with God and devoted her life to her husband, children and grandchildren.

She was born to Abram Barr “Cub” Snively III and Joan White Snively on July 12, 1958, in Carmel, Calif., and currently resided in Auburn, with her husband. Gail developed her strong sense of family at a young age as a result of her father’s Navy career. Being a “Navy brat” as she called herself and her five siblings, their family moved many times during his career which created a strong family bond that she carried forward as she started her own family. There was nothing more important to Gail than being with family and spending time outdoors. She will forever be in our memories as the most active and fun grandmother (Gaga) and for always willing to be the first to jump in the lake and live life to the fullest.

She will be sincerely missed by her husband, Scott Eaton; her children: Arron Eaton and his wife Jaime of New Durham, N.H., and Tonya Looney and her husband Jay of Billerica, Mass.; her grandchildren: Dayton, Sierra, Brayden, Isaac, Dominick, Walker and Jacob; her siblings: Scott (and Vickie) Snively, Todd Snively, John Snively and Dianne (and George) Lynch; as well as her brothers and sisters-in-law, nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, Cub and Joan, and her brother, Robert “Bob” Snively.

A private celebration of Gail’s life will be held at a later date with family.
