Gail S. (McCann) Radville, 67, of Nashua, NH passed away peacefully on Tuesday, August 24, 2022 surrounded by her devoted daughters. Born on November 30, 1954 in Lowell, MA, she was the daughter of the late Ralph and M. Pearl (Drainville) McCann.

From the beginning, Gail was a hard worker, always helping out at her parent’s many owned businesses where she instilled a work ethic that would remain with her throughout her life. Gail proudly co-owned and operated New England Grand Prix and Arcade in Tewksbury, MA with her late husband, Rad, with whom she was married to for 34 years. Together they worked relentlessly to provide for their children and were able to achieve nothing short of the American dream so many strive for.

She additionally worked as an executive assistant at Covenant Health Systems in Lexington, MA and later went on to obtain her real estate license – one of Gail’s accomplishments she and her family was most proud of. She was known for her fierce negotiating skills and ability to befriend anyone who met her.

Gail lived a vivacious life and enjoyed spending her days floating on the lake at Little Island pond surrounded by friends and family and weekly get-togethers with a group of her closest girlfriends where she was always the life of the party. Nothing brought a bigger smile to her face than relaxing by her pool with music playing, sipping on a cold southern comfort madras in the company of her canine companion, Aspen.

Gail is survived by her three loving daughters; Jenna, Mackenzie, and Abigail Radville, her three siblings, Michael McCann and his wife Judy, William McCann and his wife Paula, and Linda Donahue along with many nieces and nephews and a list of friends too long for publication.

Gail’s family has sincere gratitude for the sympathy, prayers and love offered by so many who have known and loved Gail throughout her life.

Gail’s visiting hours will be Tues., Aug. 30, 2022, from 4 to 7PM.  Funeral will be Wed., Aug. 31, 2022 at 8AM from the DOLAN FUNERAL HOME, 106 MIDDLESEX ST., CHELMSFORD, MA. at 8:00AM followed by a Funeral Mass at 9am at St. John The Evangelist Church in N. Chelmsford, MA. Burial in St. Mary Cemetery Tewksbury and a Celebration of Life at Four Oaks Country Club in Dracut. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in her name to Community Hospice House, 210 Naticook Rd, Merrimack, NH 03054. ARRANGEMENTS BY DOLAN FUNERAL HOME 978-251-4041.

    I’m so sad to hear about the passing of Gail! We always enjoyed getting together for lunch (the girls from AHS). She always had a bright smile! Heaven gained another angel?

    So sorry for your loss. Gail was a wonderful and kind woman.
    I first met her at the fun park in Tewksbury when we were kids she was always a delight and Rad and Gail were always meant for each other.
