COMER Gail Sandra (Major) 

December 23, 1963 - October 15, 2003 
The family of Gail Sandra Major announces with deep regret and great sorrow her passing on October 15, 2003 in Millfield, Australia. She put up a valiant and relentless battle with cancer for nearly three years and succumbed just short of her fortieth birthday. Gail passed away very peacefully at home, holding her husband's hand, and surrounded by candles, flowers, music and friends. She is survived by her loving husband Gregory John Major, a tower of strength during her long illness; their daughter Tianu, eight and son Banjo, five. In Canada she is survived by her parents Margaret and Bob Comer (Calgary); her sister Patricia (Mike Bourns) and children, Dustin and Jesse (Cochrane); her sister Barbara (Erwin Kloos) and children, Nicole and Blair (Invermere); her brother Ken (Fernande) and children, Tracy, Rebecca, and Bobby (Calgary); and her brother Gordon (Vancouver). In Australia she will be missed by Greg's family, parents Max and Pam Major, and Greg's brothers, Scott (Julie), Paul, and Rob (Marie). She received wonderful support from her many friends in the Wollombi Valley, Australia, and Invermere area, B.C. Gail attended University Heights Elementary, Branton Junior High and Queen Elizabeth Senior High Schools in Calgary. After graduation Gail left Calgary and spent a year in Invermere. Her adventurous and free spirit led her to Victoria and Portugal before returning to Invermere where she met and married Paul King and lived until 1990. She studied in Vancouver for a year, receiving a diploma in aesthetics. She then traveled to New Zealand and finally to Australia where she met Greg and settled down in her new home. Gail developed an interest in gardening and naturopathy because of her early diagnosis with rheumatoid arthritis. She developed her own business creating natural creams and remedies. She was a devoted, loving mother and had endless energy for her family. She received marvelous care from her dearest friend Billy McLenachan and the Australian Health Care System. Special thanks to the nurses and doctors of the Palliative Care Units. Cremation and Interment of the ashes will take place in Australia.

When I must leave you for a little  while,
Please do not grieve and shed wild tears
And hug your sorrow to you through the years,
But start out bravely with a gallant smile;
And for my sake and in my name
Live on and do all things the same
Feed not your loneliness on empty days
But fill each waking hour in useful ways
Reach out your hand in comfort and in cheer
And I in turn will comfort you and hold you near;
And never, never be afraid to die,
For I am waiting 
For you in the sky!

Obituary

RINEHART , Jeff December 21, 1962 - March 18, 2009 It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of my beloved husband, Jeff Rinehart on Wednesday, March 18, 2009. Jeff lived a full and loving life of 46 years and has left our heavenly earth to take on a new life of everlasting peace and love with our Father God. Jeff - a wonderful and loving husband to Tracy; "Big Daddy" to daughter Shelby; mother Wilma; sister Linda (Doug) Sawyer; brother Art (Bev) Rinehart; uncle Don (Shirley) Rinehart; sister-in-law Jody (Mike) Duffy; father and mother-in-law, Lloyd and Cathy Pope; two nieces Sonia Schaab and Keri Rinehart: and two nephews, Steven Sawyer and Chris Rinehart. Jeff was Jeff from the moment he was born in Olds, AB, and lived on the Rinehart family farm in Westcott, AB, for four years. In 1966 the family moved to Calgary where he spent his entire adolescence in St. Andrews Heights. Jeff was a family man and always looked up to his big sister and brother. Whatever they did, Jeff was right behind all the way. He was introduced to Tracy in 1992 through one of his dearest friends. They were a match made in heaven and married shortly afterward in 1994. Jeff and Tracy shared the fondest memories together from their love of water, and travels to Cozumel, Mexico to get certified in diving, and to their countless annual celebrations to bring friends and family together. Their love for diving and being near the water called them to Ambergris Caye in Belize where they were wed "Barefoot on the Beach" on April 27, 1994. In three short years their daughter Shelby was born and as a family their love for water carried on at our cabin in Seymour Arm, BC. Jeff loved his daughter more than anything on earth and was the proudest Dad when she was baptized, her figure skating, spring board diving, and just recently, when they went scuba diving together. Jeff was a dedicated and well-respected employee with the Calgary Board of Education where his career started when he was just fourteen years old when he had a summer job working in grounds. He went on to develop a very satisfying career in Management and he accomplished many achievements and goals. Jeff was respected by many people at the CBE. He has many, many life-long friends and "brothers" with whom he kept in touch with since elementary school. Friends called Jeff the "glue" that kept them all together. He had an uncanny ability to talk you into anything, including a number of friends who also got certified in diving and went on to enjoy many dive trips with him. He always kept in touch and would do anything for his friends and his family. He was always there to lend a helping hand. If anyone called to ask for his help, there was never a hesitation. Some of our fondest memories with Jeff are his deep love for music, his desire to be close to friends and family, his unbelievable gift of the gab, and all the great times in "Garage Mahal". He also found great comfort and peace through his daily relationship with God. Jeff, we will miss you and the legacy you leave behind will live on forever. We will miss your songs at the fire, your crazy Billy Bob teeth, your teasing, your love for life, our great dart games and dance-offs in "Garage Mahal", and your loving support. Remember: "Who Loves Ya Babe!" Funeral Services will be held at First Alliance Church (12345 - 40 Street S.E.) on Monday, March 23, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. Forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com . If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Alberta Cancer Foundation, c/o Tom Baker Cancer Centre, 1331 - 29 Street N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 4N2 (Telephone 403-521-3433). Thanks to the many friends and family that supported Jeff over the last six years. In living memory of Jeff Rinehart, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park
