It is with sorrow in our hearts that we announce the passing of our loving mother and grandmother Gail Kathleen (Jones) Lewis. After a hard fought battle with cancer, Gail passed away at the St. Michael’s Palliative Care Center on Saturday, March 9, 2013, at the age of 71 years.
Gail was born on April 26, 1941 in Raymond. Gail loved her family, playing cards, dancing, working and entertaining in her yard. Her door was always open to friends, neighbours and many acquaintances over the years. She was always up for a good visit and loved to reflect on memories from the past. Gail was known for her spirit of the holiday seasons and decorating her home for all to enjoy.
