THOMSON (Corder) – Gayle Alice
October 28, 1947 – September 28, 2019
It is with broken hearts that we share the passing of our Mom… our best friend. The amount of love she gave us was immeasurable and we are so grateful to carry on a small piece of her in each of us… Wendy, who has her strength and spirituality, Jeannie, encompasses her character and wit, Corrie, her thoughtfulness and sensitivity, Kevin (son-in-law) who cherished being welcomed with open arms and her precious grandchildren who were her world… Kaitlyn, Matthew, Scottie, Adam, Deannah, Brenna, Laynah and Courtney.
Mom was predeceased by the love of her life, Paul. Their marriage taught us what true love really was and she found so much comfort in knowing they would be together again.
Family was everything to her and she will be truly missed by the “fab four”,
her brothers Bob (Donna) & Doug (Elaine) and even those separated by distance…Jim, Mary, Dorothy and brothers-in-law Ron (Lori) and Wally, sadly missed (Maxine). She was predeceased by siblings Ernie, Barb, Don and Gladys. The unbreakable bond and love she shared with her twin brother Bob carried her through times of love, laughter and loss.
There were so many that shared in her life of 71 years including her devoted friends Donna & Ed Parker, Alice & Eileen Dickie and numerous others whose lives were touched by her kindness, humour and generosity.
As a Mom she taught us the importance and value of family, traditions and our history. She was the most selfless person…her home was warm, inviting and always full of family and friends. Anyone who knew her appreciated her wonderful, infectious laugh and beautiful smile…
Our sincere thanks to Dr. Stecyk for all of his personal care, understanding and sympathy. The nurses and staff at the Fort Saskatchewan Community Hospital went beyond all expectation for their care and compassion.
Due to our devastation of losing both parents to cancer, we ask that donations be made to the Cross Cancer Institute/Alberta Cancer Foundation (albertacancer.ca)
Cremation has taken place and as per Mom’s wishes there will not be a funeral service. Words cannot express how much we will miss her… her life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.
Loving you forever xoxox
