Gale Hingston
April 5, 1950 – August 4, 2020

Nana of Ciara, Owen, Brenna, Isla and Emma; Mother of Lianna, Adrian and Melissa; Wife of Charles; Friend and role-model to us all.
Gale was a sweet, genuine, kind and caring person. She opened her arms and her heart to everyone she met, loving easily and openly. Her courage, strength and bravery were clearly evident and she had such beauty and grace. She was full of love and provided unconditional acceptance and support. She was quiet, patient, dedicated, conscientious and consistent. She was our rock.
Gale had a zest for life. She was playful and creative in so many ways. People around her took delight in every moment she shared. Her interests were diverse and she approached learning with focus. She was a graceful dancer and a talented artist. She was a free-spirited adventurer and a ‘mountain goat’ hiker, absorbing herself in the nature and experiences that surrounded her. Her work on our family home and garden made it so warm and welcoming. She created our ‘Island Home’.

She left us too soon. Her beautiful soul and young spirit will live on. Her joyful laugh, her radiant smile, and her bright blue eyes will always be remembered.

She leaves a legacy of love, compassion and community. Thank you for your support, thoughts, prayers and care. Love, Charles, Lianna, Adrian, and Melissa Hingston.
