Obituary: Gail Patricia Dowell

"God saw she was getting tired and a cure was not to be, So He put His arms around her and whispered "Come with Me". We're thankful she did not suffer, just exhausted these last days, although we loved her dearly, we could not make her stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard working hands to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best."

Gail Patricia Dowell took her final journey on Oct. 26, 2012. She was born in Des Moines on Dec. 16, 1937. Her parents, Eugene and Helen Quinn, precede her in Death. She is survived by her 2 brothers, Robert and Michael Quinn; her 5 children, sons, Mike, Chris and Jason Cornelison; daughters, Patrice and Jennifer. She also had 6 grandchildren whom she loved dearly. Mom, may you find comfort in the arms of your angel. You are loved will be dearly missed.

Upon her request, no services are planned. Instead, raise a glass and give a toast. This would make her smile. Family and Friends are invited to visit her online memorial and leave messages for the family at
