Gail (Tubbs) Danielson and Irv Danielson, who were married and blissfully happy since May 23, 1942, died Monday in their home in Bloomington, IN. Gail was born in Charles City, Iowa. She was president of her senior class in high school, attended Kahler School of Nursing in Rochester, Minnesota, and later worked at her profession in St. Paul, Minnesota. After marrying Irv, she devoted her life to being a dedicated wife and mother to their two sons, Gary (b. 1945), and Jeff (b. 1949). Irv's work resulted in several moves including four that were transatlantic. With every move Gail not only handled all the arrangements and selling of houses, but facilitated it so effectively that her sons' transition between cultures seemed virtually effortless. With a refined sense of style and fashion, Gale was a gracious entertainer who was able to make others feel welcome and comfortable in any social setting. In doing so, she brought diverse groups of people together to share their stories, intellectual pursuits, and interests. An eternally happy and positive person she made lasting friendships wherever she was. Dearly loved by everyone who knew her, she saw only the good in people and acted accordingly. Gail and Irv lived a remarkable love story that took two small-town Midwesterners to some of the most fascinating places in the world. They did not plan it this way, but they would have asked for nothing more than to end their lives on the same day, as they did. They are survived by their sons Gary and his wife Carolyn (Piermont, NH), Jeff and his wife D'Arcy (Bloomington, IN), Gail's sister Bea Sabean (Eagan, MN), Gail's brother Glenn Tubbs (White Bear Lake, MN), Irv's sister Florence Avazian (Creston, Iowa), grandson Ian and his wife Karen (Bloomington, IN), and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. Donations in Gail and Irv's memory may be made to either the SPCA nationally, or the local Humane Society in Bloomington, IN. Arrangements are pending and will be private.
