Emeline Gay

Dedicated her life to education

Emeline L (Green) Gay passed away on February 4 at the age of 87. 

Eme was raised in Winthrop and was a proud graduate of Brown University and George Washington University.  She dedicated her life to education and would often share her stories from Massasoit Community College and Old Rochester Regional High School, where she met her husband, the late Harold Gay. 

In her later years, she enjoyed playing golf with her good friend, Shelia Johnson, traveling the world with her college roommate, Brenda (Brown) Rew and going to the casino with her son, Jeff.  Above all, her pride and joy was her grandson Conor, and she affectionately became known as “Mamaw” to his group of friends, with whom she spent countless weekends playing poker. 

Eme is survived by her son, Jeff Gay and his wife, Ginny; her grandson, Conor Gay and his wife Rachael; her brother, Robert B. Green and his wife, Lisa, her sister in law, Jeannette Green, and many nieces and nephews.  Services will be private. 

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Brown University “Brown Fund” and buy yourself a lottery ticket, because that’s how Eme would like you to remember her. Online tribute at
