I am still so overwhelmed with Gail’s passing. Gail epitomized Life! She had so much energy and was always up for everything. I worked with Gail when she first came to Winnebago. Those were not easy times for her - yet she prevailed. She knew what she had to do - and she did it. Gail was so proud of her kids, but her grandchildren were her real passion. I hope the grandchildren will carry sweet memories of a remarkable grandmother. I’m so very sorry for Gail’s passing. So many people loved her and respected her. I hope that her family can hold on to the knowledge that she was special to so many. Katherine

My sincere sympathy to Gail’s family! Gail and I first met when we went to Merrill Midde School. I knew Gail and the girls she was friends with. At North I was in Gail’s graduating class of 1973! I got married quite young and lost touch with a lot of people but I remember Gail always being such a kind and friendly person ! It make me so sad that life was taken from her at such a young age! God bless all her family and dear friends and may you Rest In Peace Gail!????
