Obituary Overview

Lovingly Remembered


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Gail Heather (Scott) McHone on Tuesday, February 9, 2021 at the age of 66.  
Gail was born and grew up in Creston, B.C. where her family ran the Scotties Campground. It was here that she developed her love for B.C. cherries, flowers, gardening, and the Creston Valley. In 1972 Gail moved to Calgary to
attend school, where she met her future husband Ted McHone. After graduating in 1974, Gail moved to Prince George where she married. Together they returned to Calgary in 1975, where Gail began her career as a Legal Assistant which she devoted herself to tirelessly for the next 37 years. Gail’s truest love was always family, and she started her own with the arrival of her daughter in 1979.

Gail will be forever and lovingly remembered by her daughter Jaimi and her husband Cory, her two granddaughters, Maya and Siena; Jaimi’s father Ted McHone, her sister Sharon Terrill (Bill), her sister-in-law Bearne Scott, and a long
list of extended family and friends. Gail was predeceased by her father Andrew Neville (Ned) Scott, her mother Myrtle Inez (Langdon) Ivany, and her brother Randall Scott. 
A private Funeral Service will be held on Friday, February 19, 2021 at Eden Brook Funeral Home with burial to follow at Eden Brook Memorial Gardens. The live stream of the service  can be accessed by the link below.

To Jaime and family, my condolences. We worked together at what is now Dentons for many years. We also lived close to each other so we would on occasion give Gail a ride home from social functions. She was very gracious and caring. I will always remember her laugh, she saw the bright side in every situation. Your Mom shared her pride of You and your family, particularly of her cherished granddaughters. She was stoic in her health battle being an inspiration to all. We cherish the fond memories of Gail.

Jaimi, Cory, and family, my heartfelt condolences go out to you. I had the pleasure of working with Gail for more than two decades, at least half of which we worked together directly. The largest pictures of Jaimi that she could fit on her desk marked her immense pride in the light of her life’s accomplishments. Whomever Gail encountered couldn’t help but be impressed with her kindness, sunny outlook, and courage. I will forever remember Gail’s accounts of riding the C-train to work with both a homemade birthday cake for me and the extra long kitchen knife to cut it, wrapped in tinfoil to supposedly make it less objectionable to carry on public transport. I know Gail continued with courage that was particularly called upon in the years following her retirement. She is an exceptional soul and will be remembered with a smile and my deepest admiration and thanks.
