Condolences & Memories (8 entries)

  • My heartfelt condolences to Gail's family. Gail's smiles, laughs and wonderful personality will be greatly missed. I met Gail when I became the chancel choir director at TMUC. We would sit together in the choir loft during the services. She was always there for me, passing kleenex, cough candies or sharing a hymnal. Even when it was difficult to manage coming and making it into the choir loft, Gail was committed and we could always count on her. A singing angel in the choir loft is now a beautiful singing angel in heaven, where we will all meet again someday.

  • We knew Gail through Transcona Legion. We played darts with Gail and attended the same Church. Gail always had a smile and friendly greeting. One in a million. She is missed. - Posted by: Linda and Darwin Armstrong (Acquaintance ) on: Jan 28, 2022

  • I worked with Gail for many years. She was a lovely person and very easy to be with. I remember we visited Gail and John at their cottage at Lester Beach with our newborn many years ago. She looked so tiny when big John held her. Very sorry for your loss. May you have many memories to give you comfort. - Posted by: Tammy Capner (Friend) on: Jan 19, 2022
