Gail W. French
Gail W. French of Holland passed away Sunday, Sept. 15, 2019, at her home. She was 70.

Gail was the loving wife of Samuel C. French, with whom she had shared 51 years of marriage. She was a sweet and loving mother to Gina, and a dear sister to Janet, John, Mary Kay and Beth.

She was an outgoing and loving person, pure of heart, and friendly with all she worked with and met. She always saw the good in people, which was a natural gift from her parents, and saw her in good stead in her career.

Born in Philadelphia, she was a daughter of the late John W. and Ruth Kolb Wenrich. In her youth she was a ballet dancer which led eventually to her work in aerobic instruction and fitness.

The family began in Philadelphia, but moved to Maryland, then Connecticut before she met and married Sam. The couple and Gina also moved to follow work, to California, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, settling in Pennsylvania in 1976. They settled in Holland in 2003.

Gail led a long career as a fitness instructor, having held positions with both the Boyertown and Lansdale YMCA's where she was responsible for offering fitness evaluations to customers and assisting them in different exercise programs. Gail also served as a Customer Service Representative for Avon from 1976 until present and was recognized for eight years in the President's Club for exhibiting exceptional sales performance during her time with the company. Gail was extremely passionate about her career both in fitness and with Avon and was steadfastly devoted to both.

In addition to her husband, Gail is survived by her daughter, Gina Louise French; her granddaughter, Margaret Louise Pope; her siblings, Janet Wenrich Baldino (John Baldino), Mary Kathryn DeBerardinis (Robert DeBerardinis), Elizabeth Ann Schultz (Mark Schultz); John Philip Wenrich (Patricia McGuire Wenrich); and four nieces, five nephews, two grand- nieces and one grand-nephew.
