Louise Gabriel, my mom was an extraordinary woman who lived her life to the fullest with great passion, humor and love.
She loved the community she lived in and gave back in most generous ways.
She is an inspiration to so many and has left a tremendous legacy. The founding of the Santa Monica History Museum was to her one of her greatest accomplishments and what she was most proud of. The Santa Monica community having their own museum to preserve our own history for generations to come.
Grandchildren, Patrick Potter, Bryan Potter and Michael Szydlik
Two sisters , Josephine Van Buren
And Elaine Bruner and son in laws, Pat Potter and Joseph Szydlik
And many nieces and nephews.
Note…in lieu of flowers we would greatly appreciate your donation to the Santa Monica History Museum in honor of my beloved mother .
