It is with great sadness that our family announces the peaceful passing of Gail Grant on Monday, December 19, 2005 at the High River Hospital, after a short illness at the age of 70 years.
Gail was born, on August 26, 1935 in Winnipeg, MB and in 1950 she met Jerry at a dance in Victoria Beach, MB. They continued their “dance” together when they married in 1955 and moved to Nelson, BC. Gail and Jerry eventually retired settling in High River, AB. Gail had a great love for crafts, such as needlepoint and her famous “teddy bears”. She enjoyed her beloved dog, Kelly her…”baby”.
