“My mom was one of the most incredible women I’ve ever known” ~ Brenda
Gail loved her family. She loved her little dog Missy, they did everything together. She loved her home of 30 years located on the beach on Lummi Bay. Jim was with her until November, 2009.
She loved rocks and was quite the agate hunter. She loved watching the wildlife, sunsets, and sunrises. She was a master gardener and loved working in the yard. She enjoyed reading, knitting, and washing the clothes as she watched TV.
She had many careers; at the Anaheim Police Dept., GP, Whatcom County, ending with Commissioner for MCFD #8, just to name a few.
She touched so many lives. She was always fighting for the people standing up for what was right. She will be so missed.
Gail is survived by her daughter, Brenda Lee; son, Brian (Rachel) Lee; step-daughters, Lynn (Wendy) Boyd-Kelley, Mary (Carl) Diltz-Kelley, Marcia (Ron) Hanson-Kelley; and step-son Bob (Maureen) Kelley.
