The wife of longtime Schenectady County Legislator Ralph Comanzo has died.

State Sen. Hugh Farley, R-Niskayuna, who said he knew Gail Comanzo almost all her life, said her death was a big loss for the Niskayuna area.

According to her obituary, she was a contestant on the original "The Price is Right" TV show, where she won kitchen appliances and a vacation to Florida, and had an infectious smile.

"She came from a very distinguished family," said Farley, who noted that Gail's father served as the chief of police in Niskayuna.

"It's a substantial loss for the area," he said. "Gail was a remarkable mother"
