Hoffmann, (Dorothy) Gail

We are sad to announce the passing of (Dorothy) Gail Hoffmann. Gail passed quietly on the morning of October 13, 2021 after a long illness with Dementia. She was predeceased by Henry, her husband of nearly 60 years, in January of 2021.

Gail was born in Lethbridge AB to Helen and Norman McGregor. She moved to Flin Flon MB in her early years and then to Calgary AB in her teens. Gail was an insatiable reader, a figure skater, then taught skating to put herself through university to graduate with a Bachelor of Education degree. Gail taught in Calgary for many years gathering accolades along the way. Always a passionate teacher.

In retirement, they moved to Invermere and Gail led the way to making Invermere her community. Passion for community contribution was one of the fuels for her fire. Her Samoyeds, garden, friends, books, the arts were only some of her fuels.

Gail is survived by her children, Eve MacMillan (Arthur), Brenda Stapleton (Greg) and Brian (Jody) and by her grandchildren Steen, Joel, Joshua, Brittany (Graham), Ken (Kim) and great grandchildren Aidan and Oliver.

Details on Memorial Service will follow. A fund will be set up for a memorial bench in the town of Invermere in lieu of flowers. Any remaining donations will be sent to the Christmas Bureau of the Columbia Valley. Condolences can be emailed to [email protected] .

We wish to thank Dr. Mannheimer, the Columbia Garden Village and Ivy House staff members for their kind and compassionate care of our mom.
