Gail E. McKimm
It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Gail Elizabeth
(Jenken) McKimm of Bristol on Saturday, December 22, 2018 at Upper
River Valley Hospital, Waterville surrounded by her family. Born on
September 20, 1959 in Niagara Falls, Ontario, she was the daughter of
Elizabeth « Betty » (Cuming) Jenken and the late Harold Meade
Mom was the matriarch, always calling to check in on us and sending
care packages if needed. Many names she went by was mom, nana, meter,
momma gail and Gail. She not only loved the time she spent with family
but the time she spent with others. Quick witted, strong willed,
independent, as well as stubborn are many words that easily come to
mind when we think of her. Always had a delicious meal prepared for
people when they were around, especially for her granddaughter, it was
not often you left her house hungry. Being a mother was her true
calling, to everyone not just her direct family, to the extent that
she formed a lifelong career caring for others. Many of our friends
considered her as their « second mom » and did not hesitate to
seek advice from her when around. She was the wisest of all and was
loved by so many.
She will be deeply missed by her loving husband, Eugene
« Bub » McKimm; daughters Tara McKimm (O’Shea Daley), Tricia
McKimm (Caleb Smith) and Hannah Ginson (Nathan); granddaughter Chloe
McKimm and a soon to be grandson; mother Betty Jenken; brothers
Michael « Mike » Jenken (Cathy), Bruce Moor, John McKimm,
Malcolm McKimm; sister Lavina Mckimm (Larry); many granddogs and
grandcats, as well as several extended family members and close
Gail is now reunited with her father, her sister Patricia
« Pat » Moore and brother Brian McKimm.
We would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff of the Upper
River Valley Hospital, especially the CCU unit staff for their care
and compassion during difficult time.
Visitation will take place at L.R. Giberson Funeral Directors on
Thursday, December 27, 2018 from 2-4 & 6-8 pm. A memorial service
will be held from L.R. Giberson Funeral Chapel on Friday, December 28,
