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 a home 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. Gail was a member of Holy Spirit’s executive from 2004 to 2023. She has filled many positions - secretary, membership, spiritual, communications, President and Past President twice. Gail retired from teaching in 2016 and this allowed her more time with her family, sons Christoper and Stephen and parents (in St. Albert). Her passion for crafting finds her working on cards and cosmetic bags for IWIN, Mission Council Cards, comfort dolls for Agape Hospice and quilting. She is an avid reader.

She is grateful for her two years on Diocesan Council as Communications Chair, and looks forward to her term as Secretary. The Joy of the Lord is our strength.
