Gail Madaleine Perry Persky

Gail Madaleine Perry Persky passed on September 2, 2022, at the age of 68, peacefully after a brief battle with acute illness, with her children by her side. Known for her selflessness, Gail was beloved by all who knew her – her family, friends, and almost anyone with whom she had the opportunity to become acquainted. While she leaves behind her children Jason Persky, Nicole (Jackson) McLemore, and Jessica Persky; grandchildren Lorelai, Raegan, and Annabelle McLemore; sister Lisa Perry (Bruce) Uhrmacher and nephews Ari and Paul Uhrmacher; her legacy and heart will forever continue.

Though she was proud of her teaching accomplishments, Gail was the consummate educator, obtaining her Master’s in Special Education in order to better help her students.  In addition, she was a skilled artist in the mediums of pastels and oils. More than anything was the core of her being in that she never met anyone to whom she did not give of herself and try to help in any way possible.

-Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation
