It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of our mother, peacefully, in hospital last Thursday evening. Family was with her until the end.
Gale is survived by her daughter Carolyn (David Noyes), son Geoffrey (Svetlana) and Brother Clayton (Zelma). She was predeceased by parents Mildred (nee White) and Roland LeLacheur. Just four years ago she lost her lover, best friend and light of her life, husband Dr. Jerry Archibald: With 63 blissful years together as partners in life, they are together again now.
Mom was remarkable for not just her outstanding beauty and intelligence, but also keen wit and easy sense of humour. She was always modestly surprised by how readily she charmed everyone who met her. She gave love and received it; in equal bounty. Rather than mourn our loss, we hope she is remembered with gratitude for having had her in our lives.
Gale will be cremated and there is no service. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to either the Heart and Stroke Foundation or Canadian Cancer Society.
