LAWRIE (Formerly Morris) Gail Patricia of Springfield Road in Sebastopol, Pontypool (daughter of Bill and Betty, sister to Ann) passed away September 3 surrounded by family, friends and her grand babies, Charlie and Brody. After traveling to the United States at 22, she opened a European bakery and provided a remarkable life for her son, Scott. Her strength and determination was matched by a sense of selflessness and compassion. Her optimism and humor carried her through life and her beautiful smile will be missed by all who adored her. Donations in lieu of flowers may be made to The Animal Foundation (https://animalfoundation.com) in Las Vegas. A private family memorial will be held in Palm Springs, CA. Further enquiries should be directed to McDermott's Funeral Home.
