Gail Millicent Craig

Gail Millicent Craig of Perrysburg died at Hospice of Northwest Ohio on February 15, 2015, after a long illness. Gail was born January 30, 1932, in Berwick, PA. Her father was a career army officer and the Seely family moved often, most notably to postwar Germany in 1948, where Gail graduated from high school. She met her future husband when her family returned to the States and settled in central Indiana. Gail and Dale moved to Perrysburg in 1962 – which they selected as the perfect community to raise their family and where Dale established Craig Transportation Co.

Gail was devoted to her late husband, Dale, who died in 2006, and to her three sons. She was a fantastic cook and homemaker. She also delighted in decorating her homes and supported her husband in his many business endeavors.

Gail and Dale traveled frequently. Later in life, they moved to Sarasota, FL (Lido Key) and returned to Perrysburg in 2003.

Gail’s passion was shopping; her inspiration was fashion. Saturdays were reserved for Jacobson’s or The Lion Store’s Ottawa Room. She was a regular at Harriet’s and other shops in downtown Perrysburg. When she could no longer go out to shop, she patronized the TV shopping channels. She could carry on a conversation while punching buttons on the phone and another necklace, purse or pair of riding boots was on its way!

Besides her husband, Gail was preceded in death by her parents, Colonel Lawrence and Bess Seely, and her brother, Colonel Richard Seely. She is survived by her brother, General Ronald (Norma) Seely, and sister-in-law, Earlene Seely. She is also survived by her sons, Michael L. (J.C. Jarvis) of Perrysburg, Brian D. (Cathleen) of Monclova, Lance C. (Patrice) of Perrysburg, and grandchildren, Dr. Heather (David Scholtz) Craig, Peace (Denis) Hassel, N. Elliot (Megan) Craig, Dr. Alex (Dr. Grace Chuang) Craig, John (Brittany) Craig, Michael K. (Clark Ausloos) Craig, and Lance F. (Megan Roberts) Craig; 6 great-grandchildren, and her beloved canine companion, Albert.

Visitation will be Wednesday, February 18, 2015, from 2-8 at Witzler-Shank Funeral Home, 222 E. South Boundary St., Perrysburg, OH 43551 (419-874-3133). Services will be private with burial in Fort Meigs Cemetery.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Wood County Humane Society, 801 Van Camp Rd., Bowling Green, OH 43402. The family thanks the staff of the Hospice of Northwest Ohio for their support and care during Gail’s final days.
