unknown - November 28, 2011
Marjorie J. (Bero) Gaza, 85, of Syracuse, passed away Monday, Nov. 28, 2011, at her home. Born on the St. Regis (Akwesasne) Reserve on Monday, Dec. 7, 1925, she was the daughter of Loran Bero and Josephine Sawatis. Following her graduation from Bombay High School, Marge moved to Syracuse to work at the General Electric plant during WWII. While in Syracuse, she met and married John Gaza. They made their home in Camillus and were married for 54 years.
Marge was mother to four daughters, Kathy, Lisa (Bill), Emily, and Meg (Eric); and grandmother to Devin, Rhea, Talon, Tyler, Nicole, Willa and John. In addition to her children and grandchildren, Marge is survived by her best friend of over 70 years, Harriett Ellis; brother-in-law, Joseph Gaza; and many nieces and nephews.
When her children were young, her house was full of their friends and laughter. She opened her doors to everyone and made sure no one left hungry. She enjoyed her part-time jobs, the garden club and a good game of Bingo. Most of all, she enjoyed the people she met along the way.
Marge was predeceased by her husband, John Gaza on September 15, 2009.
