Gail was a 1976 graduate of Erskine Academy. She was employed by the Palermo Consolidated School as the Head Cook for 22 years. Students and staff considered her family over the years and she always referred to the school as her home away from home.

Gail married her late husband, George Horak, of 36 years in 1981. Together they built a life and home where everyone always felt welcomed.

Gail was the heart of her home and family and raised four children in a happy and loving home. Becoming a Nana was one of her proudest and joyful moments. You could often find Gail at her grandkid's sporting events, in her kitchen baking with them, playing many board games with them, visiting on camping trips, planting flowers, trips to the casino, and making trips to John's Ice Cream.
