They married in 1958. They built their first home and raised their family of 3 sons. They lived, worked and enjoyed all the natural environment and activities the area offered. The whole family remained in the Terrace area and to date still reside here along with their families.
Gail is predeceased by her parents Clarence and Marjorie Pelkey, her youngest son Jim (Dana), sister Joan (Flaherty), brother Len and sister Sandra (Soulie).

To honour and respect Gail’s wishes no service will be held. Please feel free to remember her life how you wish. – May happy moments over the years.
Gail suffered with Alzheimer’s disease for past number of years, making Terrace View her home for the past five years.
We would like to thank family and friends for their kindness and support. We would also like to thank all the staff of Terrace View and her doctors for the exceptional care and respect given to Gail.
Gail will be sadly missed, but we know she’s at peace now – no more suffering.
