Obituary

Barbara Gail Conway, known to friends and family as Gail, passed away on December 4, 2017 at the age of 77 years.

Gail will be lovingly remembered by her daughters Barb and Roberta (Shaun) and her granddaughters, Isabelle (Gavin) and Emily. Gail was predeceased by her husband of 51 years, Jack, and her brother, Gerry. Many nieces and nephews will fondly remember Aunt Gail for her warmth and kindness.

Gail loved her husband dearly. She and Jack lived their entire married life in the same house in Edmonton’s west end. This unusual stability was typical – Gail and Jack only missed one Christmas together, spurring Gail to write a beautiful note to Jack about their love and not ever spending another Christmas apart. Jack kept the note among his most cherished possessions.

Gail loved her family and was proud of the accomplishments of her daughters and granddaughters. She valued education highly, earning a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry at a time when the presence of women in the hard sciences was still rare. She was happy to see her daughters attend the University of Alberta, proud to attend Isabelle’s graduation from York University in June 2017 and looking forward to Emily choosing her educational career path.

Gail was a generous and kind person to everyone. The Conway house was the neighborhood playground and community centre, and all friends were welcome. The house was a second home to Roberta’s best friend, Shawna, and the basement often became a noisy place for Barb’s latest rock band to practice. Gail graciously included all at the dinner table and made sure everyone was fed.

We will miss Gail as a mother, grandmother, aunt and friend. A friend to everyone she met, her kindness will not soon be forgotten.

In Loving Memory of
Gail Conway
(Maiden: Stayura)
