Gail was expert at crochet and sewing. Those lucky enough to have received a handmade gift were in awe of her attention to detail and creative flair.
She was a generous, caring friend; who loved the Christmas season, Tai chi, and dining out with friends ...she could never have enough cinnamon on her baby apple waffle! Gail was generous with her time and would lend a hand wherever one was needed. Gail was a longtime member of The United Church in Meadowood and volunteered many hours there.
In Accordance with their wishes, cremation has taken place and no formal service will be held.
