Gale Alsgard

May 10, 1945 - August 15, 2019

Obituary

Gale passed away peacefully at home surrounded by friendship and love. She is survived by her
loving and admiring brother Stewart, wonderful family relations and countless friends
everywhere.

Gale received her training in Alberta with a career in administrative and practical
nursing, retiring in 2007 to her home in Powell River. She loved her work with the elderly
and the young, so many of whom remained lifelong contacts.

She was involved with the development of the Elder Care program in Vancouver; taught Industrial First Aid with St. John Ambulance; conferred a Serving Sister of the Order; initiated therapy dog training; an alumnus of the Elgar Choir and the Vancouver Bach Choir; a Lieutenant (N) and Commanding Officer of RCSCC Lonsdale, North Vancouver; and member of the Royal Canadian Legion.

Gale held great respect for Tla’amin Nation, the Elders, Chief Councillors, Hegus, Legislators and the people. She was present and participated with the Hegus in the burning of the last of the Indian Act on April 5, 2016, when the Nation came to be.

In her younger years, Gale was a choir singer and leader, figure skater, swimmer and throughout her creative active life an enthusiastic traveler. She loved Canada, from sea to sea to sea, Savary Island, her many friends, had an incredible memory for event dates and stated emphatically that she had experienced a wonderful life.

Thanks to Dr. DuToit for his honest, forthright, compassionate, professional care; fourth floor nurses, occupational therapy staff and the teams who make the place tick at Powell River General Hospital; St. Paul’s Hospital and the BC Cancer Centre; the incredible professionalism of Powell River Home Care nurses, Powell River Hospice and support workers. Thanks to all out there who took time to think of and be there for Gale.

Relation: Employee

It was an honor and a pleasure to clean Gale and Stewart’s home for about ten years. We grew fond of her and Stewart and respected her for her stalwart life. She made our lives that much richer with her wisdom, talent, knowledge, and council that she gave to us from time to time advising us on our health and personal problems. We will always cherish those memories.
May you rest in God’s Care for eternity.
