Gail A. Alarie (Enos), 75, died peacefully on Thursday, January 13, 2022, at her home in La Plata, Maryland surrounded by her loving family.
Born in Providence, a daughter of the late Joseph and Christine B. (Pimental) Enos. She was raised in Smithfield, and became a longtime resident of North Providence before retiring and moving back to Smithfield.
She was a graduate of North Providence High School Class of 1964. Always devoted to lifelong learning, she attended business school in Providence RI in the 1970s and 1980s, CCRI in the 1990s, and continued ongoing training during her working years. Gail spent most of her years as a stay-at-home mom raising her two children until 1996 where she started working full time as a bus monitor for the Town of North Providence and transferred to the Town of Johnston in the same role. Subsequently, Gail worked for the Johnston School system as a Teachers Aide, doing what she loved, assisting in the learning of children. She retired in May 2018 after nearly two decades of service.
Gail found success through the lives of her children and wanted to be a part of every moment of their lives. She was devoted to her family and would drop everything to help them. In addition to spending time with her family, she enjoyed watching movies, reading books, crocheting, and doing crossword puzzles. She was an avid lover of bingo which would attend with her mother until her death in 2005. Gail was a devout Catholic and spent many years attending St. Lawrence Church in North Providence until the parish closed; she continued to attend mass at St. Michael’s Church in Smithfield. She loved to attend mass with her family and friends. In her later years, she would love to accompany her sisters Evelyn, Ann, and brother Donald to mass followed by breakfast.
Gail is survived by her daughter, Michele Rudolph (P.P.D.) and her husband Thomas of Coventry; her son Ryan Alarie and his wife Stefanie of La Plata, Maryland, and her grandchildren: Charles and Ryan of Coventry, and Lucas, Nathan, Theodore, and Henry of La Plata, MD.
