Gail T. Derkach (Steffens) of Ogdensburg, NJ, 75 years old, passed away at Newton Memorial Hospital on December 23, 2020 after a short illness. Born to Doris and Joseph Steffens on July 25, 1945, in Jersey City, NJ, she resided in Ogdensburg for the past 47 years.

Foremost Gail was a dedicated homemaker. She was the rock and foundation her family was built upon. Her greatest joys were her marriage, raising her children and being a grandmother. Her family was precious to her. Gail was also a registered nurse, exempt member of the Ogdensburg First Aid Squad, and member of the Ogdensburg Historical Society. Gail led an active life, joining her husband Dion in so many memorable adventures. Hobbies they enjoyed together include travel, camping, kayaking, sailing and playing pickleball with friends at the YMCA. Always close to her was her pal Scooter, the family dog.

Gail was pre-deceased by her parents, her stepfather Harry Burns, and her daughter, Tammy Ciolfi. She is survived by her loving husband of 53 years, Dion; daughter Sue Ann of Freehold, NJ; son Scott of Virginia Beach, VA; grandson Davis Derkach of Chattanooga, TN; grandson Wyatt Derkach and his wife Trinity of Tryon, NC; grandson Jack Derkach of Tryon, NC; son-in-law Tony Ciolfi and grandson Ryan Ciolfi of Hampton, NH; sister Sandy Wormann and her husband Walter of Byram, NJ; sisters Caroline Shann and Kathleen Burns of Sebring, FL; and brother Harry Burns and his wife Fran of Ft Lauderdale, FL. She was also loved by many nephews, nieces, cousins and dear friends.

Funeral services are being provided by F. John Ramsey Funeral Home, One Main Street, Franklin, NJ 07416. Visitation will be held 2:00 – 4:00 PM and 7:00 – 9:00 PM on Monday, December 28.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the college savings fund of Gail’s grandson, Ryan.
