Gale L. Conrad, 64, of North Port, Florida, formerly of Trenton, Michigan, passed away on April 4, 2021. She was born on December 30, 1956 in Wyandotte, Michigan to her parents William and Genevieve La Bell.

She worked at a local bank in North Port for over 30 years as a teller. Just prior to retirement in 2009, she worked as a cashier at Publix and truly enjoyed all the customers she was able to have a conversation.

She had a passion for her two grandsons who called her “Bama”. She enjoyed taking them shopping and spending quality time with them and all her family. She loved going out on the boat, hanging out at the sandbar, and grilling. She also enjoyed fishing with her family. Gale had a passion for gambling and her family members would always call her “lucky” because she would always win. She always looked forward to her kids and grandsons coming over for their weekly dinner dates. She cherished those special memories.

Gale will be most remembered by the outpouring love she always gave. She loved her kids’ friends as if they were her own and truly had a large heart.

Her children are certain that she is now with her high school sweetheart after losing him in 2010.

She is preceded in death by her loving husband, Captain Earl Conrad Jr.; parents, William and Genevieve La Bell; father and mother-in-law, Earl Sr and Kathleen Conrad.

Gale is survived by her beloved children, Jennifer (Rusty Jr.) McCord and Eric (Danielle) Conrad; grandsons, Russell III and Colton McCord all of North Port; siblings, Dennis (Vicki) La Bell of Michigan, Carilyn (Skip) Tatti of Michigan, Bill (Deb) La Bell of Englewood, Florida, Jerry (Sue) La Bell of Michigan; and other numerous nieces and nephews. Her very special cousins, Linda and Doug Giger, were like a brother and sister to her.

A graveside committal will be held at a later date at Gulf Pines Memorial Park in Englewood, Florida.
