It is with great sadness that the family of Gail Butt announces her passing at the age of 66. She died peacefully holding her daughters hand at Lakeridge Health Hospital in Oshawa on May 5th, 2020. After taking ill in recent months, she was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer, losing her battle very suddenly.
Gail was born in Windsor, Ontario on March 25th, 1954 to Cecile and Joseph Lalley. She was predeceased by her sister Carol Silliphant and is survived by her brother Joseph Lalley. Gail married Clayton Butt 40 years ago and they welcomed two beautiful daughters who quickly became her best friends.
Gail is survived by her husband Clayton, her daughters Cecile and Kelly (Son-in-law Mike), her step-son Micheal (and his daughter Emily), her grandchildren Greyson and Noah and many other family and friends.
Gail had a special ability to reach people in a deep and positive way. Her thoughtfulness and generosity was felt by all those who knew and loved her.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be given to Diabetes Canada, a charity close to her and her family's heart. Details can be found here: https://www.diabetes.ca/
