Gayle Anne (Keall) Quinn

February 16, 1951 ~ May 25, 2022 (age 71)


Gayle Anne Quinn was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. She left this world on Wednesday, May, 25th, 2022 at the age of 71.


There are no words that can depict the marvelous, quirky, and giving person Gayle was to her family, friends, and community. At 5 feet tall, Gayle could whip up a cake, make a fashion statement, and gather people for coffee quicker than a snap of a finger. Gayle always had the “perfect spot” for a Restore find or a boutique buy on her weekly shopping trips. Gayle spent a majority of her time in the community with friends at Bell Pioneer, the Legion, Hospice Muskoka Butterfly Release, or listening to Live Music at a local event. Gayle loved to share the latest news, travel the world, and tell the wittiest, most stellar jokes, in her opinion at least.


Along with these many characteristics of Gayle, she also loved her role as a grandmother to Chris, Vivica and Jude and great-grandmother to Jensen. Gayle will be missed by her 3 children, Gary Roper (Michelle), Shawn Roper and Jennifer Peschutter (Jason). Predeceased by her husband Tom Quinn. Gayle was a dear sister to Mark Keall, Jayne Keall-Bunn, and the late Gary Keall. Gayle was an aunt to Matthew, Jessica, Riley, and Stephanie. Gayle was the daughter of the late Ivan and Rita Keall.

Please find below one of Gayle’s favourite poems.

When we count

our many blessings,

it isn’t hard to see

That what we value most in life

are the treasures

that are free.

For it’s not the things

that we possess

that signify our wealth,

but the blessings

that are priceless

like our family, friends

and health.
