GAIL BERNICE SHADE

Shade, Gail, Bernice

(nee Martin)

January 16, 1961~February 9, 2016

Gail passed away on the morning of February 9th, 2016 at the age of 55 in the presence of her husband Fred, after spending the night with her daughter Laura. Born on January 16th, 1961 in North Vancouver, Gail was the youngest of four children to Robert and Lena Martin. Gail will be infinitely remembered and extremely missed by her husband Fred Shade, daughter Laura Shade (Tyson Howells), sisters Colleen Heide (Larry), Barb Henham (Warren), her brother Ken Martin (Margaret Dunbar), her many nieces and nephews and numerous friends that Gail had the good fortune to share many laughs with.

Gail will be remembered as a beautiful, caring, stubborn, hard-working woman who always put others before herself. Gail’s family would like to give many thanks to the wonderful Nurses and Doctors who cared for her during her illness these past few months. The Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, make someone laugh today.

“Time will always be a special gift we treasure forever and always”
