Gail Christine Ruff was born September 24, 1934 in Hanna, Alberta, a daughter of Stanley and Margaret Foss. In 1954 Gail married Warren Ruff and together they shared 50 years of family, friends, and many wonderful adventures. Gail's competitive spirit drew her naturally to sports, particularly golfing and curling. She generously contributed her talents and energy to many sporting organizations and events throughout the years. Her fun loving personality attracted many people to her and she enjoyed the company of many close friends. Gail loved to entertain and was as good a guest as she was a host, always in the middle of the action; often orchestrating it. Gail cherished her family and they were blessed with no greater champion than she.
Gail was predeceased by her husband, Warren, and her mother and father. She is survived by her daughter Jill of Calgary, and two sons, Wade (Sandra) and their three sons Emmett, Nathan, Carter; Bart and his daughter Madison.
Her positive and feisty presence will be sadly missed by her family and friends.
