Cherished grandmother “G.G.” of Caleb and Jackson, sister of Joan (John) and aunt of David (Janet). She was also the adored stepmother of Steven and Kathryn and loved her stepfamily sincerely. Over the past few years, she enjoyed a special friendship with Paul, filled with laughter and good conversation. She will be missed immensely by all those who knew and loved her. Daughter of the late Charles and Hazel Jackson. Gail had the biggest heart and loved helping people. She always had a bright smile and warm “hello” for family, friends and strangers alike. She was passionate about her work at the Montreal General Hospital and later at the Grove Nursing Home. Gail also loved music. Her beautiful soprano voice could be heard in the church choir, at many weddings, funerals and special events.
