Gail A. Pfeiffer
August 10, 1960 - February 25, 2022
Gail A. Pfeiffer (née Hossler), 61, of Apalachin, NY, passed away peacefully in her home on February 25, 2022, following a hard-fought battle with cancer.
Born on August 10, 1960, in Kingston, PA, she was the daughter of the late Robert M. Hossler and Dorothy (née Koscielski) Hossler. She graduated from Wyoming Valley West High School in 1978 and King’s College in 1983, with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business. Gail has resided in Apalachin since 2006 and previously in Forty Fort and Kingston, PA. She was employed as a property manager for Feinberg-Smith in Vestal, NY.
She was a loving wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, and friend. Gail took pride in being an avid dog lover and most importantly, a hockey mom and super mom to her two boys. She was the best mother, and father, as she raised her sons from a very young age, on her own. They were her pride and joy and she saw her sons as her greatest accomplishment, and rightly so. She also enjoyed traveling with her family and was adamant about making the vacation dinner reservation at 6 A.M., before she even had breakfast. She made the most perfect pancakes and brownies in the world and her guilty pleasures were late-night shopping on QVC and soap opera reruns.
In 1991 she married the love of her life William T. Pfeiffer, who predeceased her in 2007. Gail is survived by her sons, John (29) of Philadelphia, PA, Brian (25) of Grand Rapids, MI, step-sons, Matthew and Liam, brother, Robert Hossler, sister, Carol Lojewski, two grandchildren, Riley and Declan, her father and mother-in-law, William and Barbara Pfeiffer, many nieces and nephews, and her dog Bailey.

An Irish Blessing
"May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand."
