Gail Anna O'Neal
May 1, 1948 – May 15, 2018
Gail was beloved by many people, from her friends and relatives to her associates from her professional life. She had strong sense of accomplishment and desire to learn about new things. Gail spent many years working in a specialized segment of the insurance claims business, which required knowledge in architecture, engineering, construction, and the law. She counted a number of friends from her years in business from all aspects of this multi-faceted industry in both Texas & California.
Her zeal for traveling the world took her to many destinations. From a bold move to New York City, sight unseen in her youth, to backpacking across Europe with friends, & sailing the Mediterranean, Caribbean, & Alaskan Seas. Climbing to the top of Matsu Picchu, exploring Mexico, sailing in Hawaii, sightseeing in Spain, walking the streets of Paris, & touring Turkey were frequent topics of her discussions.
She was an active member of the Jane Douglas Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, Georgia Salzburger Society, Animal Rescue groups, and other community organizations throughout her life.
Gail was a graduate of North Texas University. She was born in Houston and raised in Dallas. She was the proud daughter of John Douglas & Bertha Pearl O’Neal. She is survived by her brother Ron, sister-in-law Judy, plus many cousins & life-long friends.
