    Our deepest sympathies to the family. Gail was so proud of all of you. We feel so priviledged to have been her neighbours and friends. How many times did she notice our garage door left open and phone or walk over to let us know? Small example of her always being there for others. It seemed to give her so much energy. Rest in peace Gail.

    I’m truly heart broken to hear about Gail, she was such a wonderful kind and caring person. I was so blessed to have got to know her and really looked to her as a friend and a mother figure. She was so good to me and my kids she always sent cards and little gifts for them. I’m so heart broken to have heard about her passing. She will be very very missed. She really was a special person.
    She always sent pictures and emails and letters bragging about her girls and grandchildren. She was a lucky lady to have such a wonderful family. My deepest condolences to your family she will be freely missed!

    Dear Wasson Family, I wish to offer my sincere condolences on behalf of the Wuhr family. I was shocked and deeply saddened when Linda gave me the news; I had not realized Gail was ill. She posted the nicest note on FB recently how Mom always prepared chicken and spaghetti and blueberry pie for her when she was coming home. I remember Gail, pretty as a picture, with a’huge smile always. She was always so nice, a’pure genuine soul with the sweetest disposition. My brother teared up as well when I told him of her passing. Lots’of childhood fun and memories. May your fond memories bring you peace in the difficult days ahead.
    I am sure our loved ones are rejoicing and reminiscing in their heavenly place. ♡

    Sincerely,

    Your neighbors, The Wuhr’s

    On behalf of the Yeoman family we wish to offer our sincere condolences to Gail’s family. We shared many wonderful times with the Barton family. One of my fondest memories was meeting Gail and a Robyn on the first day of kindergarten for Robyn and Tanya. Gail had the warmest inviting smile and Robyn was so shy. An instant friendship started that day between Robyn and Tanya and it still continues today. Gail was a wonderful mother and friend and I am sure the angels have taken her to a beautiful place where she can watch over her family .

    Our hearts and thoughts are with you.
    Rest In Peace.

    Gail came into my life when my son Peter married Heather. She was so grateful and appreciative of everything her daughters did for her when she became sick. She loved them dearly and was so proud. She adored her grandchildren. Even when she was not at her best she was still a cute little energizer bunny
