Gail Ann Christensen, age 53, passed away on Wednesday, December 20, 2017 following a courageous battle with Huntington ’s disease. Her family was by her side.

 

Gail was born in Oconto Falls on December 11, 1964, a daughter of Vernon and Dolores (Gilbertson) Christensen. She was a graduate of Gillett High School, and went on to work as a dental hygienist at Gillett Dental Care. Gail was the loving mother of Rachael and Nathan VanArk. She enjoyed reading, music and playing volleyball. And her patients found her to be sweet, kind and professional. She will be sadly missed.

She is also survived by her siblings: Jane (Russell) Herrman of Ferryville, WI, Allan (Laure) Christensen of Suring, Todd Christensen of Pulcifer, Kevin (Joyce) Christensen of Appleton and Neal (Heidi) Christensen of Pulaski. She is further survived by many nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends.

 

Gail was preceded in death by her father, Vernon, a brother, Larry Christensen and a sister, Debbie Zenk.
