January 27, 1959 - February 2, 2013
Gail passed away at home in Sharon, WI, on Feb. 2, 2013. Gail is remembered as a strong willed, courageous, family orientated, outgoing woman, who was loved by most. Gail had a unique and special bond with her family and friends. She not only opened her home, but also her heart to countless foster children and friends. She never allowed anyone to spend the holidays alone. She resided and built her life in Sharon, where she co-owned and operated the coffee cup cafe in Sharon with her mother, Marlyne, from 1988 until 1992. She then owned and operated Jimmy's Gas-N-Go, also in Sharon. In the recent years, she enjoyed being a Scentsy consultant. One of her favorite pastimes was always having extravagant nail designs.
Gail is survived by her loving husband, Michael H. Hornby; children: James Swaney (Violet Roberts), Megan Swaney (Nicholas Tislau), Michael Hornby (Samantha Boivin), Miranda Hornby (Cody Ostick), Adrianna Hornby, Tricia Ferkovic, and Charles Nickles; grandchildren: Trevor Swaney, Layla Swaney, and Alyssa Hornby.
