In Memory of Mrs. Gail Lee Knoll ~ Arrangements & Obituary

In Remembrance of Gail Knoll

I would like to pass along the information for Gail Knoll’s funeral. Walter and Gail have been together for over 65 years and truly have such a special love. I know Walter thinks so fondly of his Rotarian roots and would love the support through this difficult time. Gail was diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer just a few months ago and has been fighting with all her strength. Walter has never left her side, and stayed in her room for days once she was put on hospice care. The doctors believed it would be a matter of hours and instead it was almost 2 days, all of the extended family was able to go and visit. She was fully aware and talking with us until she took her final rest. Sleeping peacefully she left our world.


Her sons and Walter have made funeral arrangements, with some provisions due to our odd time in history.
