Gail Evelyn Petty, 78, of Antioch, IL formerly of Chicago passed away January 26, 2020 surrounded by her family.
Beloved mother of Cheryl (Jeff) Liszka of Lindenhurst, IL, Kimberly (John Lipinski) Petty of Westchester, IL, and George (Susan) Petty of Villa Park, IL; cherished grandmother of Jessica and Cassandra Liszka of Lindenhurst, IL; rescuer and loving caregiver to many animals; loving sister of Patricia (Art) Kroncke of Greenfield, IN, John (the late Jan) Simons of Chicago, IL, and Fred Weidman; caring Aunt of many nieces and nephews; preceded in death by her husband George William Petty, her parents John and Vivian Simons, and her sister Loretta (the late Robert) Hageman.
All words fall short, when it comes to describing Gail as a mother and grandmother. Simply put, she was a selfless, compassionate, supportive and most of all loving mother. What is more, she was a generous, empathetic, attentive and a very proud grandma. All in all, Gail was a remarkable woman, trusted confident, friend to many and will be missed beyond measure.
Private services, interment of Gail and George Petty’s cremains will be held this spring at the Ft. Sheridan Cemetery, Ft Sheridan, IL. The Symonds Lakes Funeral Home of Grayslake was entrusted with the arrangements, for additional information please contact the funeral Home 847-543-1080.
