Hello! My Name is Annemarie Gagel-Weers. Katherine I. Gogarty married my (widowed) Grandfather James M. Gagel in 1922. My Grampa Gagel's first wife, and the biological mother to her and James Gagel only child (my dad, Robert J. Gagel), died in the Flu Epidemic in 1921. Her name was Jennie. My dad, only 18 Months old at the time Jennie died, was placed in a boy's boarding school, St. Agnes, by my Grampa Gagel and where Katherine Gogarty was a nurse. She immediately loved my dad as her own and her and my Grandfather fell in love and were married in 1922. They had children with each other. Katherine was a wonderful mom to my dad. He adored her so much that when he married my mother in 1946, on their Marriage Certificate, under "Mother's Name", my dad wrote Katherine Gogarty Gagel instead of the name of his biological mother. My Mom and Dad (who are still alive as I write this - October 5, 2007) are still alive and married (61 years) and living in Michigan. Mom is 91 and dad is 87. They had four children together. Dad still speaks lovingly of Katherine, his Mom.
