Passed away peacefully in London, Ontario on Thursday, May 16th, 2019, with her family by her side, at the age of 81. She is predeceased by her parents, Ronald and Mary Hatfield.

Mark and Lorna UnderhillDear Jack and Family, We were saddened to hear of Gaynell’s passing. I’m her cousin, originally from Woodstock NB, but live on PEI, with my wife, Lorna. The last time we saw Gaynell was when we were visiting Uncle Ronald and Aunt Mary at the Good Samaritan Park in Kissimmee, Florida. We would drive over from Largo to see them, along with Uncle Maynard and Aunt Phyllis. During one of our visits, Gaynell was there to bring her Mum and Dad back to Ontario, so we were able to visit with her as well. May you find comfort and peace from memories of happy times together. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. With deepest sympathy, Mark and Lorna Underhill
