Gail's Story

Text size

Gail Marie Truax, 64, of Williamsburg, passed away Tuesday, May 2, 2017 at Munson Medical Center with her loving husband at her side. Gail was born on July 18, 1952 in Detroit to the late Carl and Eva (Casper) Drerup.
She married Robert "Bob" William Truax on Oct. 22, 1982 in Plymouth. Together they shared a wonderful life full of love and appreciation for each other.
Gail worked over 30 years as a commercial insurance agent, most recently at the McNish Insurance Agency in Traverse City.
Her passion was cooking and watching the food network. She loved to try new recipes and invent her own. Also, she was an avid stamper and she loved to make her own cards for special occasions.
Gail liked to go on short road trips that typically resulted in dinners out with Bob. She enjoyed reading, watching TV and playing games on the Internet. Gail loved the outdoors, especially nature walks and feeding the woodpeckers on her deck.
Gail was a great woman and her beautiful smile will be missed by all who knew her.
Surviving Gail are her loving husband of 34 years, Bob; sisters, Carla McGriff, of South Lyon, and Lisa Wood, of Florida; and several nieces, nephews and cousins.
Gail's family would like to thank Munson Medical Center for making her final days very compassionate, pain free and comfortable.
A memorial service will be held for Gail at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at St. Patrick's Catholic Church.
Memorial contributions may be directed to Munson Hospice House.
