Gail was born July 7, 1954 in Winnipeg, MB. In her early years, she enjoyed playing softball and bowling. Before she started a family, she worked at the Winnipeg Clinic in the Records Department. As she grew older, she developed a love for baking, cooking and spending time with her family, especially her grandkids. She also enjoyed playing bingo and going shopping. Once her children were older, she volunteered at the Deer Lodge Centre in Winnipeg. Gail moved to Lethbridge in 2013 to be closer to her grandchildren. She was an animal lover and truly adored caring for her many pets over the years.
A Celebration of Gail’s Life will take place in Winnipeg, MB in the Spring of 2018.
Gail’s family would like to extend a heartfelt thank-you to Dr. Wong and the staff at dialysis, as well as the staff on 3C at the Chinook Regional Hospital.
