Gail Williams

December 25, 2012 - May 24, 2012


Gail Marie Williams (nee Meers) was born Christmas morning, December 25 1957. Gail fought a very brave two year battle with cancer and peacefully passed away with her loving husband Ken Schwab at her side on May 24th 2012 in the Mackenzie B.C. hospital. Gail was blessed with an easy going, laid back personality. Her calm mind enabled her to face her illness with great courage. She never allowed fear or self-pity to consume her positive out look. Gail was a very fun loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter and friend to many. She enjoyed every aspect of being a family and was adored by her many nieces and nephews as a fun auntie. What made her so special was that she could never bring herself to judge anyone, no matter how bad they seemed. She had learned how to play the bagpipes and enjoyed sports such as softball and racquetball. Karaoke and Billiards were a couple more of her favorite things to do. She enjoyed learning new things and had completed a number of different courses which enabled her to work at a variety of different jobs throughout her life. Gail was the 5th girl in a family of 7 children. She grew up in a rural home in a house of 10 with her adoring granny, her siblings and her parents. She loved adventure, travel and games. Gail was predeceased by her granny, Alice Davies, her father John Meers and by her baby girl Brina.
She is survived by her husband of 25 years Ken Schwab, her children Misty (Steve), Daniel (Olivia), Kathy (Lyle), Serena (Trevor), her grandchildren Taescha, Tyrone, Sean, Troy and Stevie, her mother Mary Meers, siblings Joan Brewer (Bob), Grace Ceriko (Andrew), Christine Fawcett (Don), Pat Rankin (Geordie), Ken Meers (Laurel), Alan Meers (Sandy) as well as many nieces and nephews. Gail was well loved, respected, and admired and will be greatly missed by all. But everyone who knew her knows that she is now resting peacefully in the arms of the angels.
