Gabby M. Lincoln, 19, of Jay, passed away Thursday, Oct. 13, 2016 with her loving parents and family by her side.

Gabby was born in Plattsburgh on May 5, 1997. She graduated from Ausable Valley High School in 2015.

Everyone who knew Gabby, and even some who never met her in person, knew that she fought hard through many illnesses in her life, but faced each day with a courage and fearlessness that inspired all those around her.

In the words of a cherished teacher and friend, "Gabby was sassy, sarcastic, brave, stubborn, a fighter, courageous, loved, honest, tough, fabulous and determined."

Gabby's sarcasm helped her to show up and not complain. She met each day with a tenacity that helped her finish high school and get a job all while waiting for a new set of lungs. While the new lungs did not last, they gave her a chance to experience life without an oxygen tank for the first time in years. She was able to venture out on a trip to the South with a close friend and this experience helped carry her through the last months of her life.

Gabby lived her life without complaint and to the fullest. She never wasted time wishing she were given a different circumstance. She lived. Her motto was "Suck it up" or get over it. She would want us to live, to follow our dreams and to accomplish all of the things that she wanted to do.

Gabby is survived by her parents William II and Anna Lincoln; paternal grandparents William Sr. and Carolyn Lincoln; maternal grandparents Harry and Patricia McCray; and Eugene Novajosky. Gabby was the youngest child of a joined family and leaves behind the following devastated siblings: Elizabeth McCray (Silas), Karyn Anderson (Steve), Leigh Ann Spooner (Chad), William III (Tabatha), Gregory McCray (Kayleigh), Joseph Lincoln (Mckenzie), Emylee Lincoln, and Sarah Lincoln. She was the favorite aunt Gabby to Jillian, Alyssa, Damian, Brooklyn, Leila, Kendra, William IV, Gavin, Kallie-Ann and Scarlett. She is also survived by many close aunts, uncles and cousins.

She was predeceased by a nephew, Charlie, and her paternal great-grandma Dubay.

Calling hours were held at the Thwaits-Zaumetzer Funeral Home on Sunday, Oct. 16, with a funeral/memorial service directly following. Burial will be private and at the convenience of the family.

Donations in her name can be made to either the Jay or Upper Jay fire departments.
