Left to cherish her memory are her children Stephen (Michelle), Kim, Kerri and Robert (Sharon); grandchildren Isaac, Johan, Elizabeth, Jennifer and Emily; siblings Edmond (Kaye) and Margaret; as well as nephews Thomas, Mark, Paul and John and countless friends.

Gabrielle was born in Weyburn, SK on May 6, 1923, where she attended Assiniboia Elementary School and Weyburn Collegiate Institute. After graduation, she moved to Regina where she attended business college and then worked for Canadian Pacific Railway and the Drake Hotel.

It was in Regina where she met Deryck. They were married in 1951. Gabrielle devoted herself solely to her family until she started a professional career at the Department of Extension, University of Regina from 1974 until her retirement in 1988.

She was a dedicated musician, playing piano and saxophone, and was an enthusiastic member of the Regina Lions' Adult Band. She participated in concert band and music festivals, in particular the Moose Jaw Kinsmen International Band Festival, and enjoyed marching in parades, the most memorable being the Grey Cup Parade in Regina in 1995.

She enjoyed curling, fishing and attending Saskatchewan Roughrider football games. Gabrielle enjoyed life and was willing to try anything at least once. She was an extremely giving and kind hearted person who loved working with and meeting people. She was always active.

On July 1, 2000, Gabrielle suffered a severe stroke that slowed her down physically but her spirit remained undamaged.

Gabrielle's family would like to give special thanks to the wonderful nursing staff of Unit 4A, Pasqua Hospital for the compassionate care given to Gabrielle, as well as to her doctors and caregivers.

A MEMORIAL SERVICE will be held at Regina Funeral Home, Hwy #1 East, Regina, SK on Saturday, November 24, 2007 at 2:00 p.m. with Reverend John Weckend officiating.
