Obituary for Gail E. Mohsenian

June 9, 1943 - November 7, 2021
Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania | Age 78


Gail Elizabeth Mohsenian passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 7, surrounded by her family.
Gail will be lovingly remembered by Javad, her husband of 52 years, Roya, her daughter, Dara, her son, and by her beloved grandchildren William, Parker, Max, and Owen, to whom she was known as "Nan." Gail was born in 1943 in Orlando, Florida to Warren and Dolly Breinig. Her father was a United States Air Force Captain and fighter pilot, who died in a training accident when Gail was only a toddler. Dolly then married Newt Gish, who raised Gail in Newtown, Pennsylvania with her siblings Alex Gish (now deceased) and James (Jim), who was at Gail's side when she passed on Sunday. Gail met Dr. Javad Mohsenian at Eastern State School and Hospital while she worked as a special education teacher. After they were married, Gail and Javad bought their home in Montgomery country, where they raised their two children. The family spent summers at their home in Brigantine, where Gail loved spending time with her children on the beach, swimming, playing board games, eating Congo bars, and going to the Ocean City boardwalk. She eventually returned to work at a senior living community before she retired to spend time with her four grandsons, whom she adored and spoiled relentlessly. She will be remembered lovingly as "Nan" - the elegant matriarch of three generations who was perennially optimistic, kind-hearted and cheerful. She will be remembered for her generosity and devotion to her elderly family members to whom she was a constant source of comfort and support. Most importantly, she will be remembered by Dara and Roya and her four grandsons (as well as her nieces and nephews) for being their greatest and proudest champion and cheerleader. Gail was fiercely loyal, never refused a piece of chocolate, and was extremely protective of her family. She faced declining health in recent years with the same optimism, determination and ultimately grace. Her family is indebted to her physician, Dr. Melissa John, as well as her nurse Teresa Brzyski. She will be greatly missed.
Memorial services will be private. Contributions in her name may be made to the Sjogrens Syndrome Foundation, 10701 Parkridge Blvd, Suite 170, Reston, Virginia.
