Mrs. Gail Monro (née Lawrence), age 82 of Maryville, TN, passed away peacefully the afternoon of Thursday, April 15, 2021, while surrounded by her loved ones. Gail was born on February 20th, 1939 in Paterson, NJ, and resided in Wyckoff, NJ until moving to Tennessee in 1996. She was a member of Central Baptist Church, a nurse for over 30 years, a supportive and loving wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and Great-grandmother as well as a friend to many. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends, trips to Myrtle Beach, SC, her annual girls’ trip to the Jersey Shore with her childhood friends, relaxing on her front porch swing sipping coffee and chatting with her neighbors, and evenings spent with her husband, Richard, and faithful dog, Katy. Her sense of selflessness and personal creed, “to always be kind, no matter what,” has left an immeasurable impression on everyone lucky enough to have known her. She will be lovingly remembered by her high school sweetheart and husband of 64 years, Richard; her children, Scott and Ginny; her brother, Paul and his wife Anne; her grandchildren, Shawn, Lindsey, Megan and her husband Kyle, Erin, and Ryan; her great-grandchildren, Luke, Blake, Lily, Logan, and Sofia; her lifelong friend of 75 years, Marie and the countless others who considered her family. Her wake will be held 5-6 PM with a memorial service to follow from 6-7 PM EST, Thursday, April 22, 2021, at Central Baptist Church in Alcoa, TN. If you are unable to travel, a virtual Zoom meeting can be accessed at https://zoom.us/join, Meeting ID number, 96677377443. It was Gail’s wish that any memorial tributes be made in the form of charitable donations to your local ASPCA or the Wounded Warrior Project in lieu of flowers.
