The most loving and fun mummy to her much adored boys, Jack and Ruben, Gail had endless love to give and a heart of gold that she shared with everyone she came in to contact with. With her caring and giving personality, Gail was a natural at her work as a nursery nurse, loved by her fellow colleagues and those in her care. She worked at Little Cheeky Monkeys, Great Harwood before moving to Great & Small Kindergarten, Clayton. Gail was the most talented cook and loved to get in to the kitchen to create her latest culinary delights. She enjoyed travelling and her favourite destination was Lanzarote where she loved to relax and unwind in the warm climate with her partner and soulmate, John, she also enjoyed many trips to Belgium sailing on the overnight ferry and trips to Morecambe. In her younger years Gail loved to dance and was a keen ballet and tap dancer. Gail loved to be surrounded by those she loved and wherever she went she would light up the room with her smile.

    I taught Gail for a while at primary school. I remember  a lovely, beautifully  well mannered, hard working little girl.  It’s such sad news to hear that she has gone at such a young age. Please accept my sincere condolences.

I will be forever grateful for knowing he was so well cared for and loved by her. My love and condolences to all her family especially John and her two beloved boys who she adored. I will miss her. She was one in a million x

    Gail, you were a ray of sunshine, even on those rainy days your smile could light up the sky. It may have only been 3 years of friendship but what an amazing 3 years it was. The amount of laughs we had when texting putting the world to rights is something that I’ll truly miss. Rest easy Gail & keep a watch over your beautiful boys xx

    Gail was a lovely young lady and gone far too soon. She was always so helpful and kind and a super mummy to her two little boys. She was always cheerful and would do anything to help out. She will be sorely missed by so many. Sending lots love, sympathy and comfort to all of you. Xxxxx

    I remember Gail as a little girl, red cheeked on a windy beach, inviting others to make her laugh, laughing or recovering from laughter. I remember cricket and rounders and football and catch and icecreams and kites; a children’s train at Happy Mount Park: a trio of waving girls in a happy huddle. I remember Gail with the world’s biggest pear drop; Gail with an assortment of her Mum’s yearly, whacky entertainments; a teenage Gail searching for McFly souvenirs and talking about the concerts her Dad had taken her to. A grownup Gail still laughing and encouraging laughter. Memories preserved in amber – amber the colour of her hair. My heart goes out to those nearest to her: her partner John, her children and her parents. So much lost too soon.

    Duncan and Lindsey

    We too have many happy memories of sunny days on Morecambe beach (of course it never rained). Even as a tiny tot, Gail was always such a wonderful mix of kindness and fun. We  also treasure a lovely evening with Gail and all the family this summer, seeing Gail as a generous, kind young woman and such a caring mum to her boys. She loved and was loved dearly, and leaves a huge gap in our hearts. Our love to Chris, Barbara, John, Jack and Ruben xx

    Helen Heaton

    Janet and Shirley Shaw

    We met Gail, when she was a little girl. We have just moved next door to her great aunt Lillian. Gail, her mum and dad Barbara and Chris used to visit Lillian frequently. Gail was vivacious, fun loving and full of laughter whenever we saw her. We were shocked to hear the Gail had died. We never met Gail’s partner or her children, we send our love to all Gail’s family, thinking of Barbara and Chris especially. All our Love, Janet and Shirley

    Wonderful lady that I met when I first moved to Clayton 8 years ago and became my first friend over here, we did a few courses together at the children’s centre and I helped her at the playgroup in Arthur Wilson Centre. You loved your boys dearly and will be missed by all.

    The grief is real, but the loved memories will outlast the pain. Remember the light and joy she brought.


    We may not have seen much of each other in recent years, but you will always be one of my oldest friends. Your smile, fun and many happy Morecambe memories will never be forgotten. You will be greatly missed by so many.
