Gail Louise Schorno Passes
Gail Schorno, “Age 65, of Yelm, passed away Wednesday, November 5th 2008, after a two-year battle with cancer. Born in Tacoma to Dallas and Marguerite Edwards, she spent most of her life in Yelm. Gail graduated from Yelm High School in 1961, and was married to her high school sweetheart Larry Schorno for 47 years. Gail, a devoted, talented mother and homemaker, had many interests. She enjoyed singing, acting, horseback riding, cooking, gardening, beachcombing, and piloting her Cessna. She was a great fan of her nine adoring grandchildren, attending their many ballgames and musical events. Many charitable organizations benefited from her generosity, including Yelm Dollars for Scholars, POSSCA, Yelm Performing Arts, Drew Harvey Theater, and Yelm Historical Society. She loved to love her family. She is survived by her mother Marguerite Edwards, husband Larry Schorno, daughters Gayla Schorno-Duerr and Cindy Schorno, sons Dan and Glenn Schorno, sisters Dallas Ann Landon and Christine Chatwood, brother Jeff Edwards, and nine precious grandchildren, Peter, Kristie, Daniel, Natalie, Austin, Jack, Will, Alexis and Laney. Gail will be dearly missed by all and we know we will see her again in Heaven. A memorial service will be held Tuesday, November 11, 2008 at 1 pm at the Lawrence Lake Pavilion in Yelm. A brief gravesite visit and reception will follow. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Dollars for Scholars Endowment Fund in memory of Gail Schorno,” quoting the Tacoma News Tribune.
