Barbara 'Gale' Everett

EVERETT, Barbara Gale - Smith's Cove, N.S. - At age 70, Gale passed away with her family at her side in the early morning hours of August 3, 2019 in the Digby General Hospital. Born on February 5, 1949 in Malton, Ontario, Gale was the daughter of the late Roy and Barbara (Donnan) Anderson. 


Gale loved to cook and bake and had a great collection of recipe books. She loved to share what she made with everyone she knew. One of her great passions in life was shopping, with Avon and The Shopping Channel being among her favourites. Gale also loved to spend time outdoors tending her flower gardens and watching the cardinals and other birds in her yard. Above all, Gale loved her family and her three sons were the joys of her life.


Gale is survived by husband Blair; sons Michael of Bear River East, Jeffery (Shawna) of Big Valley, Alberta, and Kevin (Connie Rodgerson) of Digby; sisters Carol (Doug) McLeish of Digby, Linda (Bob) Swinson of Oshawa, Ontario, Colleen (Scott) Farrell of Oshawa, Ontario and brother Gregory Anderson of Mississauga, Ontario; fur baby Norton and numerous nieces and nephews.
