Gail Elaine McIntosh October 16, 1962 – January 14, 2019 It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Gail McIntosh on Monday, January 14, 2019. She will be lovingly remembered by her sons, Steinn and Stefan, brother Grant, sister Heather, and many friends and relatives. She was predeceased by her parents, Cec and Peggy. Gail was a beautiful woman, inside and out. Her wisdom, strength of character, generosity of spirit and patient, calm nature touched everything she did and everyone she met. She had a large circle of close friends who often remarked that she was the hub that kept everyone connected. Gail symbolized her approach to life with the lotus which she described as a beautiful new flower that miraculously rises each morning, out of its muddy roots, in the muddy waters. Like the lotus, Gail was the purest of souls, always seeing good in people and turning tough situations into opportunities to blossom. After completing her studies in Quebec, Gail had a long and successful teaching career with the Winnipeg School Division. She was a very gifted, creative and innovative teacher who impacted many lives in her role as an educator. Gail also loved to travel, read, paint, listen to tunes, but what she loved most was spending time with family and friends. She particularly cherished the special times spent in Riverton, Gimli and at the family cottage at Beaver Creek. Family was very important to Gail and she was immensely proud of the amazing young men Steinn and Stefan have become. Her strength, spirit, and wisdom will live on through them. Heartfelt thanks for the care and compassion Gail received during her illness. In keeping with her wishes, there will be no formal service, but a celebration in the spring. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Gail’s name to Ovarian Cancer Canada. Góða nótt, elskan. We will miss you.
