Condolence: My deepest condolences are to Mrs. Ansell-Gosselin's loved ones at this time. I am very truly sorry for your loss.
I was lucky enough to have Mrs. Ansell-Gosselin as my grade 7 elementary school teacher at ALC. I vividly recall how she was so caring, passionate, loving, and kind. She taught her students, including myself, so many important life lessons that one cannot learn in a textbook. She always encouraged us to treat others with nothing but kindness, and to be accepting. She had such a beautiful heart.
I will always remember, she taught our class that we should always buy fair-trade chocolate or clothing if we can, and to buy second hand clothing. She was truly an outstanding teacher, and phenomenal human being.
She truly touched the hearts of many.
I send my prayers and strength to her loved ones.
She will be truly missed
Condolence: Sorry to hear the news of Gaye’s passing. Our deepest sympathies Brian and family, our thoughts are with you in this difficult time. Gaye had a beautiful energy and kind-heartedness that will always be remembered.
Condolence: We are so sorry for your loss. Gaye was indeed a wonderful person. Her heart was as big as forever. She was so generous with her time and many talents. She was a loyal friend and always treated her students with love, dignity, and respect. She could do it all, kindergarten to intermediate, and students needing particular attention or care. A favourite memory of mine is walking into her grade 7 class and seeing a huge planter filled with beautiful lettuce that the students had grown. What a wonderful way to inspire children to care for our planet, garden, and grow their own food. She had a hearty laugh and a beautiful smile. She will me missed.
Condolence: Dear Brian and family, I am sending my deepest sincere condolences. I never met Gaye but I did hear so many great things about her and how wonderful she is. Just looking at her picture I can tell she was a great gal.
So young to leave this world. Obviously God has other plans and needs her.
Wishing you the strength to get through this sad time and loss.
And the strength to caring on after.
Thinking of you and God bless
Condolence: I had the pleasure of knowing and working with Gaye at A. Lorne Cassidy E.S. She was always there to lend an ear, make you smile when you needed it or share her wisdom. She also taught my children and they loved her. Our family sends our condolences to Brian and Gaye's family.
Condolence: Dear Brian and family, although I only knew Gaye for a short time as a colleague and friend at WO Mitchell, she had a huge impact on my life. We met at a time where I was under a lot of stress and was suffering from severe anxiety and depression. Gaye was my rock during that time. Always there with a listening ear and always encouraging me to take care of myself first. She was so kind and compassionate during my difficult year. I will always be grateful for her friendship and non judgmental approach. I will fondly remember her laugh, our shared love for owls (she is my owl scarf twin) chats about life and our short time together as colleagues and friends. “The best kind of people are the ones that come into your life, and make you see the sun where you once saw clouds. The people that believe in you so much, you start to believe in you too. The people that love you, simply for being you. The once in a lifetime kind of people”
Gaye was a one of a kind person and she will be missed by everyone who knew her. Sending you all light and love during this difficult time.
Condolence: Dear Brian - Although we have never met, Gaye had so many wonderful things to say about you during our many talks at lunch in the staff room at W.O. Mitchell. She also had sage advice for me on more than one occasion and a beautiful laugh to brighten anyone’s day.
A few of my friends and I gave Gaye her special quilt when she was first diagnosed and I was able to visit with her at your home and here, at my home, last year. I was so sorry to hear the news of Gaye’s passing this week. Please know my thoughts are with you at this difficult time.
