RUMSEY, Donna Gail

Gail Rumsey passed away on Friday, October 23, 2020 at the age of 53 years in Stony Plain AB after a six year fight with breast cancer.

Gail was born in Rimbey on November 22, 1966 to Kay and Dave Rumsey, the youngest of eight children. She grew up on the family farm west of Bluffton and attended school in both Bluffton and Rimbey. She was a horse lover and had a nice pony, Fleetfoot, that she competed with in gymkhanas and various horse shows around the area. As she was growing up, she and her parents started spending their summers on the B Race Track where Gail had many adventures and acquired many life-long friends. She loved her children and enjoyed spending time with them and gave every opportunity in life she could that made her happiest in life. After going to Devries College, she started her banking career and at the time of her passing, she was the Assistant Manager at the ATB in Stony Plain, AB.

I had the pleasure of working with Gail for only a short period of time but I am so grateful that I was given the opportunity. Gail was the type of person that you already knew about before you met them. Her reputation and the respect she garnered was tremendous. I am truly going to miss our conversations as her knowledge and guidance made me a better person and parent. Steve, Justin, Sydney, and Noah I am so sorry for your loss. Gail was one of the best.

This is truly heart breaking and shocking, I ran in to Gail often at the ATB in stony plain, the last time she was there we had a visit and she told me she was going to the states to try a new treatment for cancer, She was very positive about this new venture, I felt very confident after our visit that should would be ok, Gail was a wonderful person with a big heart, we often talked about what her kids were up to, she was a very proud mom…She will be missed by many…

I met Gail at Envita, she was my cancer battle buddy. We had an immediate connection and leaned on each other for support after we each returned home. In that short time we talked of getting a matching tattoo for our port scars, now I will wear your name in honor of you and our fight together. I will miss you my friend.

Oh my goodness, so sad to hear of Gail’s passing. I got to know Gail when she worked at Wildwood ATB , she was such a friendly, kind hearted woman . I ran into her a few times since she moved, she always greeted me with a great smile and we had a little catch up conversation. She will be greatly missed. Condolences to the whole family.

I was riding on the “B” circuit when I met the Rumsey family. Gail always had a smile on her face. She was kind but fiery. My condolences to all the family. Just remember, she will always be with you cause she is an angel watching over each and every one of you.

I got to know Gail through ATB when she called to introduce herself as my Personal Banker – I think that was in 2007/2008. We immediately formed a bond and I always enjoyed my dealings/interactions with her in and out of the bank. She always went above and beyond – making sure to make time for a quick “Hello, How are you?How are the boys?” She’s going to be missed! Prayers and condolences to her family, friends and coworkers. RIP my friend – until we meet again.

I had the pleasure of working with and seeing Gail at work for about the last 12 years or so. She always stood out and she made an impact on the lives of so many other people. Her family must have been so proud of her. My thoughts are with the family during this very difficult time. She will be missed.
