May 16, 1945 - November 21, 2021

It is with a heavy heart, Winston (Slim) Duncan announces the sudden passing of his beloved wife.
Gail was a loving mother of three, grandmother of seven and great-grandmother of four. Her greatest love was to lend a helping hand and support her family, friends or neighbours. She was always known for her kindness and generosity. She had endless time and energy for everyone. People were always welcome in our home. She was a lover of the outdoors and spent countless hours around a campfire and in a boat fishing up north. She thought about others more than she did herself. She was selfless in giving, generous and kind.
Mom was born in Eriksdale, MB, but spent many years living throughout various Manitoba communities, where she volunteered, giving back to her community, and caring for those around her. She always had a welcoming smile, the best hugs that she never wanted to let go and wore her heart on her sleeve. Her door was always open and there was always hot coffee ready to be served, accompanied by a homemade cookie.
A small private family service will be held followed by a Celebration of Life in Spring 2022.
