Gail Eileen Hargreaves, Nee Shorrock, 71, from Nanoose Bay, B.C. left us peacefully surrounded by family on Friday 06-Apr-2018. She is predeceased by her parents William and Tootie Shorrock.
Gail was born in Edmonton, Alberta and spent her early life in the Vancouver area before residing in the Comox Valley where she met her husband Larry. They moved to Tahsis in 1979.
Gail worked as a teacher and loved her time in the classroom. Her students were her “kids”. She retired to Nanoose Bay in 2004. She loved the excitement of travelling. A simple road trip would keep her happy, but she never forgot her Hawaii trip with her daughters. Gail spent the remaining years happily surrounded by family and friends, who were the world to her.
Survived by her husband of 44 years Larry. Children; Tara, Kim (Trevor), Jody (Carlea), and Corey. Grandchildren; Natasha, Karissa, Mackenzie, Markus, Addison, and Austin.
A celebration of life will take place at First Memorial, 1720 Bowen Rd, Nanaimo on the 28-Apr-2018 from 1 – 4 pm.
In lieu of flowers please hug a loved one and express how much they mean to you.
The family would like to thank Dr. Fridriksson, Dr. Baillie and the staff at Nanaimo General Hospital for
“A teacher takes a hand, opens a mind and touches a heart”.
