Gisela was born in Neumarkt, Austria, on March 24, 1923, where she lived on a farm with her family, survived the war and finally sailed to New York City in 1952. She settled in New Britain and lived with her brother, Louis and his family until she met and married her husband, John Toth. Gisela and John built their home in Plainville, where she continued to reside until moving to Bel-Air Manor in Newington, last October. She was employed at Stanley Works until she retired after many years of service. Gisela loved working in her yard and garden. She took a great deal of pride in keeping a well-manicured lawn.

Gisela was predeceased by her husband, John, in 2002, as well as, her brothers, Louis, Albert, and Michael. Gisela will be missed by her nephews, Dennis Poglitsch and his wife, Geraldine, and James Poglitsch and his wife, Marcie Matuszak, both of New Britain; and her devoted niece, Elaine Jendrzejczyk and her husband, Leon of Vernon.
