Sandra Davies, mostly known as Gail, formerly of Custer, passed away peacefully at home in Henderson, Nevada on June 15th at the age of 82. Her husband and daughter were at the bedside saying goodbye.
Gail was predeceased by her son Michael and her brother Gary.
Gail is survived by a daughter and her husband of 55 years. After meeting in Honolulu, Hawaii they were married in Toronto, Canada in 1967. She is remembered by her cousins and an aunt of Campbellton New Brunswick, Canada and by her sister-in-law of Milton, Ontario, Canada.
Gail was born in 1940 in Campbellton, New Brunswick, Canada. She was raised and in Bellevue, Ontario, Canada. Following high school, she enrolled in nursing school and became a registered nurse. She was a practicing nurse in Canada and after marrying her husband, a US Navy sailor, many US cities until retiring in Newport Rhode Island in 2000.
In 2013 she moved to Custer where she made many friends with Wittrock Road residents and as a member of Custer Zonta Club, Custer Republican Women’s Club, and the Do-Nothing Club.
She loved animals and while living in Custer adopted many dogs and two cats. Her last two dogs, black labs, and the cats are still being cared for by her husband. One of her favorite activities was a drive through the park on the wild life loop. She enjoyed watching her husband feed deer near their house every afternoon.
She was an avid flower gardener and used her own clippings to make beautiful arrangements for her friends and family.
