Biography

  • Birth: Gail Marie Linskens was born on January 20, 1957 in Appleton, Outagamie Co, Wisconsin.
  • Marriage: She and Robert Howard Elliott were married on October 31, 1985 in Palm Beach, Palm Beach Co, Florida.
  • Death: Gail Marie Linskens died on June 26, 2016, at age 59, in Louisville, Jefferson Co, Kentucky.
  • Note: On Sunday, June 26th 2016, the world lost a woman whose good works know no boundaries. Gail Marie Elliott passed away unexpectedly at the age of 59, in Louisville, Kentucky, after a sudden onset of severe illness. She was en route to her home state of Wisconsin to visit her parents.

    Born January 20, 1957 to Laverne and Eugene Linskens, it didn't take long for Gail to show the world that she had extraordinary gifts to give it. Some people spend their entire lives trying to be more generous, more of a leader, or more self-sacrificing... these qualities came naturally for Gail. As a young adult, the fearless woman she was left her hometown of Kaukauna Wisconsin, with her lifelong friend Ella, and headed into the world searching for adventure. Ella was like a sister to Gail and is the same dear friend that was by her side when she left this world. She married her soulmate Robert Howard Elliott on October 31st, 1985 and was eager to start a family. Shortly after they were married they were blessed with two little girls, Michelle and Christina. She raised them to be strong, independent and loving. In 1997, she was blessed to give birth to her son Tyler Beau, a short nine months after a 12 year anniversary trip to Hawaii, which included a visit to the famous Fertility Falls. Much like his mother, Tyler has developed into strong, altruistic young man.

    In a world that preaches the notion of always putting one’s self first, Gail chose to live by her own set of standards. Whether it was making a generous donation, involvement in her community, providing assistance to a family in need, or fostering children to show them love and kindness, she woke up each day with a mission. That mission was to live an honest and charitable life. After surviving cancer multiple times, Gail understood more than most that each day truly is a gift. She was a free spirit and lover of life who gave generously, loved travel and possessed a fierce love for her family. She had a natural ability to problem solve, and was never afraid to put in the hard work herself. Many times her beloved husband would come home to a new home project in progress. He'd shake his head, grab some tools and work right alongside his bride. Her hard work, dedication and love for real estate "fixer uppers" blossomed from ground zero to an extremely successful business. She leaves behind more than a legacy... Her positive impact on this world will continue to perpetuate for decades to come.

    She is preceded in death by her husband Robert Howard Elliott (2003).

    She is survived by her parents, Laverne and Eugene Linskens; four siblings, Eugene, Brian, Bradley, and Dawn; her three children Michelle Walkup (Billy), Chrissy Lanier (Kyle), and Tyler Elliott; as well as three granddaughters, who she affectionately referred to as Bug Bug, Punkin and Scoochi.

    Friends and family will be received on July 5th, from 5-6 PM at Buxton & Bass Okeechobee Funeral Home. Memorial service will follow at 6PM. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked for donations to be made to The American Cancer Society, which is close to Gail's heart.
