Simply Fishermen's Wives

The Gloucester Fishermen's Wives Memorial stands
looking out over the harbor on a late summer morning.

The site was designed by Ann Gilardi Johnson.
The sculpture was created by Morgan Faulds Pike.

"The memorial serves as a testimonial to what wives, mothers, sisters, and children of fishermen of the world have endured because their men chose to be on the water. They had no choice but to stand on rock, to be on land."
-- Angela Sanfilippo at the dedication ceremony on August 5, 2001

Much more information about the Gloucester Fishermen's Wives Memorial can be found at the Gloucester Fishermen's Wives Association website.
