Gisele Marie (LaCroix) Del Negro, 97 of North Adams, MA died Sunday May 10, 2020 at North Adams Commons.
She was born in St. Sebastian, Quebec, Canada on November 24, 1922, the daughter of Arthur and Corinne (Dumas) LaCroix. The family moved to Barre, VT and she was educated in Barre schools.
Gisele was a successful business woman who opened and operated the Mohawk Ski and Sports store in North Adams after the passing of her husband Nicholas in 1976. Prior to that she assisted her husband Nick in running both The Mohawk Ski Shop and The Mohawk Memorials, a retail gravestone business.
She was the widow of Nicholas J. Del Negro who died on November 22, 1976. They were married on June 10, 1950. Gisele was a communicant of St. Elizabeth of Hungary Church.
Gisele loved her family above everything else and was known as Memere to her grandchildren and great grandchildren who always looked forward to Sunday morning doughnuts with her. She always said donuts were the perfect food, as they could be eaten for breakfast, lunch, snack, dessert, and heck even supper. Her grandchildren loved her homemade chocolate chip and Italian cookies (especially when a baking lesson came with them as it often snuck in other valuable life advice and some good Italian vocabulary) and her handmade slippers! She taught her grandchildren to bake with her while measuring and counting out in French so they also got a French lesson. She loved falling asleep in her chair watching her favorite team, the Boston Bruins always hoping she would get to a chance to see her son come out on the ice.
Survivors include one daughter- Nicole M. Del Negro-Jozefiak (David) of Pownal, VT and three sons- Arthur N. (Laurie) Del Negro of San Antonio, TX; Steven J. (Lynn) Del Negro of Williamstown, MA; and Donald J. (Claire) Del Negro of Lynnfield, MA. She also leaves nine grandchildren including Katie Demers, Kara Marks, Jamie Jozefiak-Estey, Cory Jozefiak, Amanda Jozefiak, Nicholas Del Negro, Justin Haskard, Corinne Haskard and Renee Del Negro; seven great grandchildren including Gavin, Carson, Gia, Tyler, Jude, Addison and Riley; her sister in law, Elizabeth Prenguber and nieces and nephews. Her daughter Susan C. Del Negro died on October 9, 2019 and five brothers and one sister are deceased including Mariette Schmitz; and Louis, Gabriel, Donald, John and Jeannot LaCroix.
The family would like to express their deepest gratitude to the wonderful staff at North Adams Commons for their unwavering support and the amazing care that they gave to their Mother.

Dear Nicky and Family, I am so sorry about the loss of your dear mother. She certainly lived a long and well-lived life. She sure was an inspiration for so many years; doing the things she did well into her 90's. Our paths crossed several times caring for our parents, Nicky, and in the end, both my Dad and your Mom passed during this most difficult time. Please know that I have been thinking of you all and send my sincerest condolences. May Mrs DelNegro rest in peace now. Diane Mirante
