The family of Gail Chellew is saddened to announce her passing on Tuesday, November, 5, 2013, at her home in Port Perry, at age 70, after a courageous battle with cancer. Gail was born in Toronto in 1943, daughter of Frederick and Gladys Archer, and sister to Wayne (Brenda). Beloved wife to Peter and a loving mother to Megan (Dave), Ceara (Martin) and Erin. Gail's very full life included nurturing her daughters through various pursuits and challenges including figure skating, piano and English and Latin classes at Port Perry High School where she taught for many years. Gail's interests included the genealogy of the family clans, sewing, knitting and in her retirement, quilting. All this while co-producing the transformation of S.S. No. 9, the Yellow School to our family home. We wish to acknowledge the extraordinary support provided by family, friends, the staff of the R.S. McLaughlin Durham Region Cancer Centre, the staff of Central East CCAC and Saint Elizabeth, and particularly Dr. Sandra Hyshka and Dr. Steven Russell of Port Perry Medical Associates. We would enjoy reminiscing with family, friends and colleagues at the WAGG FUNERAL HOME, 216 Queen Street in Port Perry (905-985-2171) on Saturday, November 9th from 2 – 4 and 7 – 9 p.m. If desired, memorial donations may be made by cheque to the Canadian Cancer Society or the charity of your choice.
