Gail Diana Jeffery

February 15, 1942January 11, 2020

Gail Diana Jeffrey was fierce, kind, intelligent, funny, thoughtful, an artist, an adventure seeker and an amazing mother who loved her daughters unconditionally.

She found true, eternal love when she married Edward Jeffrey. She brought joy into every room with her. She never met a person she didn't want to be friends with and spoke with strangers as though they knew each other already. It didn't matter who we brought home over the years, Mom always welcomed them with an open heart. She gave us the freedom and support to love who we wanted and to find success or even failure on our own terms, knowing that she would be there for us no matter what the outcome. It is impossible to imagine our life without her in it, but we have been missing her terribly for these past few years as Alzheimer's slowly stole her from us, that we know for sure.

Gail grew up in St. Petersburg, Florida, and she loved the beach, the ocean, skiing, and gymnastics when she was growing up. She and her husband Edward Jeffrey loved being outdoors and spent the best years of their life together swinging a tennis racket, skiing down snow covered mountains and playing golf together. Gail loved to travel and took us all over the world when we were growing up. We were always so proud that she was our Mom. We were the lucky girls with a fabulous, funny, fantastic mother who always made us feel loved. Because of her, we were empowered to become anything we wanted in life, to dream big, to work hard and to achieve whatever we desired in ourselves. How lucky we have been to have had such an amazing mother all of these years. She will be missed so, so much.
