Following her marriage to Lloyd Wiemers in 1953, they moved to Rathdrum in 1954 where they raised their family. Gail was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. Although she only had an 8th grade education she attended North Idaho College, earned an AAS in nursing and worked as an LPN, until her retirement. She enjoyed traveling, gardening and her parakeets. She loved museums, books, history, and her family. Most of all she loved her spiritual brothers and sisters in the congregations of Jehovah's Witnesses which had grown from one congregation in the Coeur d'Alene area to nine congregations, including the Lakeland congregation she attended when she died. She was known for the big, heartfelt hugs which she gave freely. She will be truly missed.
