Sister to Linda & Russel Hillman, Mary Louise Clark and Greg & Diane Steen.  Predeceased by her brother John Steen.  Gail was the best Aunt to all her nieces and nephews, sharing an amazing bond with Daniel, Bradley, Julie and their families.  She was known as Bubbles but often referred to as “the old girl” to her special friend Bob Cleland.  Gail was blessed with many friends through her 43 years of working at Mallory’s (Hopkins) and social gatherings at the Blenheim Legion.

In keeping with her wishes, cremation has taken place.  A time of visitation will take place at the Blenheim Community Funeral Home on her birthday, May 20, 2022 from 11:00 a.m. until noon.  A Funeral Service conducted by Legion Padre Bill Terris will take place at noon followed by interment in Evergreen Cemetery where Gail will be laid to rest with her Mom.
