Gamache (21 Nov 1928 – 24 Feb 2017) was born in Hudson Falls, NY and grew up in Bald Mountain section of Greenwich, NY. She married Joseph Gamache on 7 July 1946 and moved to Schuylerville, where she lived for 60 years. She was active in many church and community activities.

Her family was very important to her and she loved large family gatherings and took numerous pictures of every occasion.
