Gail Johnson Golla, 91 passed away on Sunday, Aug. 4, 2013 at St. Mary’s Hospice, Duluth, with her family at her side.
Born in Minneapolis, Gail lived her life in northern Minnesota.
She married Peter Golla in 1941 and they raised their five children in Cloquet.
Mom dedicated her life to taking care of her husband and raising the children. She worked tirelessly and we will long remember her lessons. She wasn’t easy on us, but as we grew older we realized she was mostly right all along.
Gail was preceded in death by her husband in 1994, after 54 years of marriage and also by her granddaughter, Tracey Bastien in 2011.
Gail is survived by her five children, Connie Schroller, Anaheim, Calif., Yvonne (Duane) Bastien, Cloquet, Robert Golla, Duluth, Clara (Merle) Keopple, Rice Lake, Wis., and Doris (Freddy) Idbayeh, Newport Beach, Calif.; eight grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren.
