    Gisele was predeceased by her husband, Lee, in 2003.

    The family would like to offer sincere thanks and appreciation to the staff at the Converse Home in Burlington for their outstanding care and loving support they gave to Gisele.

    A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated at St. Monica Church in Barre on Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013, at 11 a.m.
