Gail Poshtar

Gail was born in Fort St. John, BC and moved to Edmonton to attend University.  She met her husband, Ron, in a computing science class!  After completing her Bachelor of Education, she taught in several Edmonton Catholic Schools.  When Christopher and then Stephen were born, she taught night school, summer school and then adult education day classes for Edmonton Public Schools.  Ron’s work required a move to Calgary in 1992.  Gail joined Holy Spirit CWL to meet the women of the parish.  Gail found work with Calgary Catholic Schools in 1993.  She taught Mathematics at Bishop Grandin, Father Lacombe and Bishop McNally.  Her love for the league grew after helping with 2001 National Convention in Calgary.  She has attended many conventions since.  When Ron died in 2003, Gail decided to join Holy Spirit’s executive.  She has filled many positions - secretary, membership, spiritual, communications, President and Past President twice.  Projects include the used book sale, craft sale, and comfort dolls for Agape Hospice.  Gail retired from teaching in 2016 and this allowed her more time to help her family, Mom and Dad and Mother-in-law, in Edmonton.  Her passion for crafting finds her working on cards for IWIN, Mission Council, and quilting.  She is an avid reader.

She looks forward to her term as Communications Chair for the Calgary Diocesan Council.  The Joy of the Lord is our strength.
