GAIL CAROLE PASESKA
Gail was born on November 14, 1944 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and soon after her birth the family returned to Winnipeg. She grew up in the west end of Winnipeg and attended Sargent Park School and Tec-Voc High School, where she received the Governor General's Medal upon graduation.
Gail worked for Air Canada for a number of years and loved the travel (and shopping!) opportunities this provided.
She leaves to mourn her sister, Sharon Mulder (Bill Martin), nephews, Jan (Melissa) and Ethan Mulder, and great-nieces and nephews, Vivien, Louis, Mack and Mae, sister-in-law Linda, as well as special friends, Janet, Maxine and Brenda. We all agree that Gail loved to shop and with her recent move to Gimli one of her first questions when settling into the Betel Home was "How am I going to get to Johnson's?"
Gail was predeceased by her parents, Mae and Bob Scott, and niece Melanie Mulder (Brian Sparrow).
In lieu of flowers, Gail requested that donations be made to the Canadian National Institute for the Blind in Manitoba, cnib.ca, a charity which was so very helpful to our mother.
As per Gail's wishes, there will be no funeral. She will be put to rest in the cemetery in Gimli with our parents in the spring.
Condolences can be left at www.neilbardalinc.com
Rest in peace dear Gay

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
We lived next door to The Scott Family on Dominion. I remember Gail as being The Brainy Girl. Her Father, Bob, was the Inspector of Morality at Winnipeg Police. When I became an Adult with a Job in Radio I, often, dropped by to 'Say Hello' and spend some time chatting in their Living Room. What I most remember was Playing Hop Scotch on the shared sidewalk between our houses. The Scotts were Great Neighbours. - Posted by: Warren Cosford (Next Door Neighbour growing up on Dominion Street) on: Aug 21, 2022
Dear Sharon extending my deepest sympathy on the passing of your dear sister. Thinking of you during this sad time! Lynda Ruban Canadian Cancer Society (retired) - Posted by: Lynda Ruban (Canadian Cancer Society (retired)) on: Jan 10, 2022
Our deepest condolences to Gail's family and friends. Our family have so many precious memories of Gail, to the countless hours of great conversation over a cup of tea, or glass of wine, or a fabulous chocolate desert. Gail always lit up a room with her beautiful smile, and would lift your spirits with her infectious laughter. She never held back in sharing her appreciation and love for beautiful art work, clothes and jewelry and had this ability to draw you in with her conversations as she talked about these things, as to her they were not just things, or items, but tangible pieces that brought joy to her life and through those conversations she brought joy to your life. It is with the memories and shared moments together that we carry forward and remember her with the upmost fondness and love. Linda Langevin, Nicole and Troy Owens, Bryce Langevin and family - Posted by: Linda Langevin (Sister In-Law) on: Jan 09, 2022
