I worked with Gail at the Ford Van Dyke Plant in the plant engineering department. Gail had the unusual hobby of finely decorating ostrich eggs(!) with beautiful nature scenes. She would sell them at various craft shows and on-line. The eggs were obviously "voided" prior to Gail's personal touch. I once told Gail that our engineering department could have a great scrambled egg feast if she only took the time to prepare it. I could tell by her expression that she actually pondered the idea. She was truly a sweet and fun lady.

The Lord has already welcomed Gail to His glorious kingdom, extending peace and comfort to Gail's family and friends. Rest in His peace, Gail.

Gail and I worked on several teams and projects together.

She always said exactly what she thought, so there was never any doubt.

A smart, funny, and diligent in her work. An absolute pleasure to be with.

She always had time for a helping hand or offer insight to an issue.

I thought then and still do think very highly of her
