Gail Eleanor Soble In Memoriam
July 28, 1937 - September 8, 2016 With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Gail E. Soble, nee Zalik, last week in Thousand Oaks, CA, following an extended illness. Gail was born to Moses & Celia Zalik in Minneapolis. She graduated from North HS and the Univ of Minnesota, then moved to Los Angeles where she became an elementary school teacher. After marrying, Gail moved to Dresher, PA, where she raised three children, before returning with them in 1978 to Sherman Oaks, CA. Gail had a 30-year career with the LAUSD. She was a skilled educator and deeply appreciated by "her kids", in whom she always took great pride. Gail retired from Emelita St. Elem School in Tarzana after a fulfilling career doing what she loved. Gail enjoyed lifelong friendships countrywide, but she most enjoyed spending time with her children and especially her grandchildren. She will be missed by all who knew her. Gail is survived by her three children: Lee Soble; Jon Soble and his wife Stacey, their children Rachel & Charlie; Marlena Soble and her husband John Nann, their daughters Jordan & Micayla; her sister, Sandie Knopf and her husband Alan; as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews. A scholarship fund in her memory is being developed: GailSobleFund.org.
