Wake for Dews will be Monday in Lyndhurst
Dews' body was found at the base of a gorge in Pennsylvania last week. Authorities have labeled her death as being 'suspicious.'
A visitation for relatives and friends of Gail Dews will be held from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. Monday at Nazare Memorial Home in Lyndhurst.
Dews body was found at the base of a 92-foot gorge off a Pennsylvania highway Monday, March 11.
Authorities have deemed Dews’ death “suspicious.” Pike County coroner Kevin Stroyan previously said Dews died from “multiple blunt force injuries” that appear to have been caused by Dews’ fall to the bottom of the gorge.
An obituary on Nazare Memorial Home’s website states that Dews was a clerk for a local dairy distributor. She was born in Passaic and was a Wayne resident for most of her life.
Dews (nee Vander Teems), 56, is survived by her husband Stephen; children Jaime, Christopher, and Timothy; grandson Leo; sisters Karen Giganti, and Robin Ziegler; and her brother Neil.
A private cremation is planned.
A Rutherford resident said that Dews was a “gentle soul and beautiful person” on a page created for Dews on legacy.com. Another note on the site stated Dews was a “lovely person.”
