Gail was a devoted wife and mother, and she always put her family first. She enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren, and she was always there for them with love and support.

Gail was also an active member of her community. She volunteered at the local soup kitchen and food pantry, and she was always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. She was a kind and generous woman who will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Gail is survived by her loving husband, Robert; her children, Sarah Horak (John), and Matthew Horak (Emily); her grandchildren, Ethan, Olivia, and William; and her siblings, John Smith (Karen) and Mary Jones (Tom).
