Obituary for Gail Ann Strom-Thomas

Gail Ann Strom-Thomas of Waterford was born January 27, 1958 in Dearborn, Michigan to Kenneth C. and Hatty (nee: Bertakis) Strom.  She died October 30, 2020 at the age of 62.

Gail is the beloved mother of Max Thomas, Spencer Thomas and the late Evan Thomas.  She is survived by her mother Harriet (the late Kenneth) Strom.  Dear sister of Laura Hatch, Mary-Eileen (Donald) Goss, and her twin brother Kenneth (Dawn) Strom.  She is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, extended family members and friends especially her dear friend Randy Estrada.

Gail was a 1976 graduate of North Farmington High School where she grew to be a pure athlete in the sport she loved most, gymnastics. Upon graduation she attended Northern Michigan University with a full ride scholarship in gymnastics. Gail was known to be extremely bold and fearless, which led her to many cross country adventures that later brought her to California.  During her life she was a hard worker, and a woman of many trades, working as a flight attendant, Gucci Sales Representative, dog groomer, you name it, she’s done it.  Her journey didn’t stop until she found her true passion as a substitute teacher. Her heart and soul were based in the community helping kids learn and watching them grow.  Gail was a bright light in many people’s lives, she had a big heart and was known to be kind, caring, loving, and the friendliest human being on the block, she’ll be missed by so many.
