Alice Margaret (Ward) Gagnier, 77 of Williamstown, MA died Tuesday, April 20, 2021 at home. She was born in Pittsfield, MA on November 10, 1943, a daughter of Frank and Alice Elizabeth (Brown) Ward. She attended Lanesboro schools and graduated from Pittsfield High School with the class of 1961, moving to Williamstown in 1965.
Alice was previously employed at Berkshire Mutual Insurance Company. She was employed in various roles for many years at Williams College most recently in Human Resources, retiring in 2006.
Survivors include two sons – Grant William Gagnier, Jr and his wife Kelley and their children Trent William Gagnier and Mason Grant Gagnier, all of Plymouth MA; Jamison Rutherford Gagnier and his wife Deborah, and their children Chloe Ward Gagnier and Emilie Urquhart Gagnier, all of Evergreen, CO; one sister, Marilynn Ward Atterbury and her husband Gerald of Plymouth, MA; and niece Morgan Wilcox Crosby and her husband Rick of Rockland, MA.
Ali cherished her time spent on the Outer Cape, especially North Truro and even more so, time with her grandchildren whom she loved dearly. She spent many hours creating and tending to her gardens and enjoyed the sense of accomplishment and feeling of connectedness to the earth that this labor of love provided.
Ali will be missed by her family and community of friends, including those with whom she volunteered her time at the Williamstown Council on Aging, The Harper Center, and Williamstown Public Library. At Ali’s request, services will be private.

We all miss Ali so much! What a wonderful and caring person, always sharing her open heart with friends and family. My family and I have decades of magical Cape Cod memories of Ali: adventures, walks on the beach, games, conversations, and laughter.
Ali was so proud of her wonderful sons, grandchildren, and niece. To all of Ali’s family, we send our sincere condolences.

Nancy (Coughlin) Weida and family

GW & Jamie,
I am so sorry to hear of your mom's Alice passing. She was a kind, loving, soft spoken lady, and oh how she loved kids.
As we grew up on Maple St together and neighbors for so many years. I have fond memories of the good times playing ball in the street or just hanging out together for hours.
May her unconditional love for all of you get you through this difficult time.

Diane Mullett Allard

I am so sad to hear of Alice's passing. I knew her through my current and previous job and absolutely loved talking to her when she came in. She loved her family and she always had some fun stories to share. I will miss our chats, her cheery personality and how she was always smiling no matter what. I am sorry for your loss.

Ali and I have been friends for 53 years. This friendship has lasted through my 5 moves, 3 away from Massachusetts. I last visited her in August , 2 + years ago. It was if we still were Williamstown neighbors. We had so much fun exploring festivals in Vermont and in the Provincetown, Ma. areas, especially savoring vintage shoppes. We would visit at either of our homes on Saturday afternoons sipping rum concoctions...just finding the right recipe for a refreshing lull in our busy lives. My most treasured memory is of Ali's magical family daycare home on Maple Street. Both of my sons, Philip and Stuart, were watched and supported by Ali's creativity, style and humor. My youngest son, Stuart, spent 8 years in her care. Her house was full of interesting play and relaxing places; her holiday decor and brunches were legend to her "charges" of all ages. Across the miles for the past seventeen years, Ali and I communicated by phone, notes, cards, and email. She will always be my dear friend, wise advisor, and silly buddy.
Rest in peace. I will keep an image of Ali in my memory of her wading in the Atlantic Ocean near her beloved Cape Cod cabin,
and jumping the waves, arms outstretched.
