Gail was a stay-at-home mother and grandmother. She spent her life devoted to helping raise her grandchildren. She was quite the prankster. She loved playing tricks on her loved ones to get a reaction from them. It was her life's goal to make everyone laugh and smile. When Gail wasn’t tending to the kids, she enjoyed horseback riding and spending time at the Casino, gambling with her beautiful mother.

Gail enjoyed taking the grandkids to the beach to stay. She loved vacationing up and down the beaches of Oregon and California.
In Gail’s final days, she was cared for by her granddaughters, Tamara and Hailey Millar, who had lived with her most of their lives.

Gail was preceded in death by her mother and father, Charles and Betty; and her brother, Charles Moncy. Gail is survived by husband, Winston; her sister, Betty Kemp; her eight children, Daniel Millar, Michael Millar, Judy Stewart, Dennis Ashley, Godfrey Ashley, Pamela Vargas, Anita Hernandez and Karen Lawrence; 21 grandchildren; 17 great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
