Collett- Mrs. Diana Gail Collett, age 82 years, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by loving family. Gail was born in Guelph, Ontario on May 12, 1938, the daughter of William and Clarice King. She grew up in Georgetown, Ontario before moving to Guelph to train at the Guelph General Hospital. As a Registered Nurse Gail worked at Humber Memorial Hospital and later at Georgetown General Hospital. A talented artist, she enjoyed painting with oils and water colours and during her time in Florida learned the art of painting with acrylics. Gail owned and operated Craft Shops in both Georgetown and Meadowvale and taught painting. She met the love of her life Bob Collett while living in Georgetown and the two were married on December 5, 1959. Together they raised 4 children and Gail was a dedicated mother to her two sons and two daughters. Their marriage saw them living in Georgetown, Merritt Island, Florida, and Port Elgin. She and Bob were very active in the communities where they lived and as President of the Kinettes in Georgetown, Gail helped with the petition to build the retirement home Kin Court. She will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed by her husband Robert, children Philip (Liana) Collett, Paul(Sandra) Collett, Diana (Deanna) Hannaford-Wilcox and Lesley Collett, grandchildren: Emma, Samantha, Sylvia, Heather and Rebecca, Jessica, Kristine, Scott, Taylor and Kennedy as well as by nieces, nephews and other relatives.

I was so very sorry to read of Gail’s passing. She was a fun, and full of life lady!
She was so good at organizing our small G.H.S. reunions, whenever she was coming to Guelph. We will miss those as well as seeing you Bob, and Gail.
I know you all have many wonderful memories......cherish them!
RIP my friend....

Thinking of you at this sad time. I met Gail thru the Grocery store where she taught the PARC ladies painting. We became great friends with lots of laughs involved and potlucks. Hold your memories close to your hearts ❤️ The welcome rock she painted for me will be treasured forever. Hugs to Bob
