ANNA MAE (GAIL) BEATON (nee SHACKELL) April 6, 1940 - June 9, 2018 It's with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Mom, Gail, at the Grace Hospital. Left to cherish her memory are her daughters: Debbie (Vern), Donna (Marc) and Wendy; granddaughters: Kara (Vernon), Brittney (Mark) and Caitlin; step-grandchildren: Rene, Bjorn and Lindy; great-grandchildren: Kolby, Rory and Scarlett; in-laws: Beverly, Nelson (Jackie), Earl (Mary), Jeannette (Timmy), and extended family and friends. Gail was predeceased by her parents, Stan and Vi Shackell; her in-laws: Georgina and David Beaton, Elaine, Floyd and Kenneth. Mom was raised in Minnedosa, MB and moved to Winnipeg to attend business college after graduation. She worked for many years at Eatons, before getting married and raising a family. Once the kids were in school she went back to work in a clerical role at the Bank of Montreal Mortgage Services for 24 years, retiring at 60. Golf was something she took up later in life and it soon became her new passion. She also resurrected her interest in bowling. Between the Minnedosa Girls, Bank Ladies and Bank Retirees lunches, events and exercise class with the St. James Seniors, Wizard card game, bowling and golf, she had an active social life and a wealth of friends. And who would have guessed she was a long time loyal follower of Indy and Formula One. In keeping with Mom's wishes, cremation has taken place with a private interment planned at later date. A memorial service will be held on Monday, June 18, 2018, 1:00 p.m. at Mosaic Funeral Home, 1839 Inkster Blvd. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to causes dear to Mom: Canadian Wildlife Federation, IFAW, Winnipeg Humane Society, Alzheimer Society or Heart and Stroke Foundation.
