Gail “Topsy” Fanning
Gail, fondly known as Topsy, passed away peacefully at 85 in her home on November 6, 2017; a few days after a welcomed visit from her sister Linda and brother-in-law Bruce. She survived her husband “T-Bone” by 8 years and leaves behind five children Billie Maye/Laurie, Dee, Cindy, Kathy, and Mike. Topsy cherished long distance phone calls from her many grand and great grandchildren along with calls from close friends and extended family members. She especially enjoyed watching the children play in the street in front of her home. Topsy was blessed with special friends and neighbors that looked out for her over the years. The family is so very thankful to all of you that offered so many acts of kindness to Topsy. The family is so grateful to the doctors and nurses that coordinated her healthcare with such skill and compassion. A special thank you to Hospice for enabling the family to honor Topsy’s wishes to stay at home throughout her life. Topsy requested that there be no services held and that memorial contributions be made to Hospice and the SPCA.
