Ashleigh VanHorn Obituary, Death – Gail began her teaching career in the field of home economics at Abington Heights High School immediately following her graduation from Marywood University with a Bachelor of Education in the subject.

She used to be a member of the Country Club of Scranton, where she found the sport of golf to be quite delightful.
While she was a member, she participated in the club’s women’s golf league. Playing the card game bridge with the other people who were members of the country clubs that Gail belonged to in the past, such as the Waverly Country Club, the Glen Oak Country Club, and the Scranton Canoe Club, was one of Gail’s favorite things to do while she was a member of numerous country clubs in the region.
Volunteering at Allied Services and the Clarks Summit First Presbyterian Church were two of her most cherished ways to pass the time. She was involved in both organizations as a member of the congregation. The family would want to take this opportunity to express their gratitude to the personnel at The Pines and Allied Hospice for the compassionate care that they gave for their loved one during their final days.
