Gail Bourdo

Gail Bourdo passed away on Dec. 7, 2016, at home, surrounded by her loving family and friends at the age of 64.

She was the beloved wife of Dean, her high school sweetheart of 43 years. She was the loving mother of Deanna (Randy) Kurth and Sara (Kory) Kristbaum and very proud grandmother of Dominic, Ryan, Riley and Gauge. Gail is further survived by her brothers-in-law Jim (Suzanne), Alvin and Mark (Bonnie); sisters-in-law Dorthea, Patsy (Chuck) Jagunt, Carol, Geri, Jane (Bill) Holick, Lois (Harry) Novak, Doris and Robin. Gail will be greatly missed by her nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.

Gail worked at Citizens Bank for 39 years. She was blessed to be a part of the very large Bourdo and Peterson families of Big Bend. Gail’s 11-year battle with multiple cancers showed others how strong she truly was and how she deserved the title of “Super Woman.” Her family and friends will miss how much she cared for them and her accepting attitude.
