It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Gail Elizabeth (Jenken) McKimm of Bristol on Saturday, December 22, 2018 at Upper River Valley Hospital, Waterville surrounded by her family. Born on September 20, 1959 in Niagara Falls, Ontario, she was the daughter of Elizabeth "Betty" (Cuming) Jenken and the late Harold Meade Jenken. 
Mom was the matriarch, always calling to check in on us and sending care packages if needed. Many names she went by was mom, nana, meter, momma gail and Gail. She not only loved the time she spent with family but the time she spent with others. Quick witted, strong willed, independent, as well as stubborn are many words that easily come to mind when we think of her. Always had a delicious meal prepared for people when they were around, especially for her granddaughter, it was not often you left her house hungry. Being a mother was her true calling, to everyone not just her direct family, to the extent that she formed a lifelong career caring for others. Many of our friends considered her as their "second mom" and did not hesitate to seek advice from her when around. She was the wisest of all and was loved by so many. 
She will be deeply missed by her loving husband, Eugene "Bub" McKimm; daughters Tara McKimm (O'Shea Daley), Tricia McKimm (Caleb Smith) and Hannah Ginson (Nathan); granddaughter Chloe McKimm and a soon to be grandson; mother Betty Jenken; brothers Michael "Mike" Jenken (Cathy), Bruce Moor, John McKimm, Malcolm McKimm; sister Lavina Mckimm (Larry); many granddogs and grandcats, as well as several extended family members and close friends. 
Gail is now reunited with her father, her sister Patricia "Pat" Moore and brother Brian McKimm. 
We would like to thank the doctors, nurses and staff of the Upper River Valley Hospital, especially the CCU unit staff for their care and compassion during difficult time. 
Visitation will take place at L.R. Giberson Funeral Directors on Thursday, December 27, 2018 from 2-4 & 6-8 pm. A memorial service will be held from L.R. Giberson Funeral Chapel on Friday, December 28, 2018 at 11:00 am. Donations in Mom's memory would be greatly appreciated to an SPCA of your area or River Valley Cancer Support Group.
