Tribute & Message From The Family


Gabrielle Michaelis-Cifoni, 58, of Belleplain, NJ, formerly of Bradenton, FL, went home to be with the Lord on October 31st, 2018. Gabrielle was born on January 14th, 1960 in New York City to Lansing & Arlette (deMonceau) Michaelis (deceased). She was the sister of Jacqueline Soffe of Enterprise, Alabama & Lansing "Doc" Michaelis of New Orleans, Louisiana. Gabrielle was a devout Catholic and a member of St. Casimir's of Woodbine, NJ. Even as her health began to falter, her selfless nature and ability to put others before herself never wavered. Her sense of humor was second to none and she was always there with a funny story and a witty quip. She received her Masters in Mathematics from University of South Florida and was an admirable teacher for over 20 years. Later in her career, as a Professor of Mathematics, she had the distinguished honor of being named "Professor of the Year" multiple times. She enjoyed her title as Professional Shopper, Chef and Grandmother Extraordinaire; but her proudest and most noteworthy, personal accomplishment was having the title of "Mommie". Gabrielle is survived by her loving husband of 14 years, Daniel Cifoni and her two children, DJ (Jeni) Scheid of Palmetto, Florida; Josephine Scheid of Bradenton, Florida and her step daughters, who she so lovingly raised, Bobbie Scheid & Chantel Laud of Bradenton, Florida. She is also survived by her 7 grandchildren Chase, Madisyn, Cayla, Kinsley, Lily, Britney & Ciarra; and many adoring cousins, nieces and nephews, friends, colleagues, countless students and extended family members that she held close to her heart. Please join us at St. Casimir's Catholic Church, 304 Clay St., Woodbine, NJ 08270 for a celebratory Mass in honor of her life on Saturday, November 17th, 2018 at 11am with visitation beginning at 10am.
