Terri Turner-Sewell:

Our deepest condolences to all of Gail's family, sending you all lots of love.
Gail will be so very missed by me and my family. She was someone I always looked forward to seeing, hugging, talking to and laughing with. I have enjoyed many rounds of golf with Gail and will cherish every memory that she is a part of. I loved her wit and her spitfire attitude, there is no one else like her.

Brenda Nicholson:

So sorry to hear of Gail's passing. I played Bridge with her frequently over a span of thirty years. Gail played the game well but never took it too seriously - always space for her quick wit and infectious laugh to shine. I offer my condolences to her family.

Gary Hiney:

Vickie Teskey:

So sorry for you... Brenda, Brad and your families.
Gail took me under her wing as a neighbour, cemented by our love of curling and golf. Her positivity, perseverance through any challenge, and most of all, her little giggle, are traits I loved and admired. So many memories... of trips and trophies. She was skip of the only women’s team, in the Friday night,“Super-league” and in my opinion... was in a league of her own.
I will so miss my friend, Gail.

Gwen (Bryanton) Klint:
