Words can't express the wonderful person that Gail was. Gail spent most of her life in Paintsville, KY. She graduated from Paintsville High School in 1970. She gave most of her life caring for her Mother until Mary passed. She cared for her nieces and nephews as well as being a single mother raising a daughter on a very limited budget.She enjoyed the last few years of her life caring for Charlie, her beloved companion until his death. She met and fell in love again with Doug Antrim who treated her like she deserved. He moved her to Texas and then with some encouragement they moved to Oklahoma to be close to her brother and sister-in-law, Wade and Christy. She was very happy the four years she was in Oklahoma and she had wonderful people around her. She struggled with her health but had excellent doctors until they could do no more. Gail will be missed by those who knew her and truly loved her. Visitation will be Thursday, October 10 from 5-6PM for family and from 6-9PM for friends.
