Obituary for Gail F. Grimes

Gail F. (Larrivee) Grimes, 74, of Warwick died Friday at Kent Hospital. She was the wife of John J. Grimes to whom she was married for 53 years.
A daughter of the late Oliver and Catherine (Fay) Larrivee, she had been a Warwick resident for 50 years. A graduate of the RI Nursing School, Gail was employed at St. Joseph’s Hospital as a Licensed practical Nurse for 20 years. She was an avid competitive bowler for many years and was unbeatable at card games. Her creativity was displayed din her beautiful and unique Easter baskets and Christmas Stockings that she made for family and close friends. Her other creative endeavors were displayed at many fairs and events throughout the years. Gail and Joh loved to travel and did so extensively throughout the United States. They went camping and fishing every year. Gail was a passionate lover of wildlife. In addition, to her household pets (dogs, cats and a trio of African Grey parrots) she fed, housed and nurtured birds in homemade bird houses in which many wild birds made their home. She fed squirrels and other wild creatures needing nourishment and protection.
Gail leaves a sister Linda Rogers of Florida and the late Jane Spinoza and Maryann; a niece, Jill Ianone and a nephew, David Rogers. Gail was loved by all who knew her especially her four sister-in laws and brother-in-law. She always seemed to know intuitively when someone was in need of support and encouragement. Gail’s courage during the last years of her life was exemplary as she struggled through several difficult medical issues. Gail’s strongest trait was her unswerving faith. She was a weekly communicant of Saint Clement Church.
Her funeral services will be private. Donations in her memory may be made to the charity of your choice. Her family sincerely requests that you remember her in your prayers. Condolences please visit
