Gail was born on November 6, 1959, in Milledgeville. She was the daughter of the late Thomas W. Dixon and Shirlely A. Dixon of Jones County, Ga. Gail was a devoted wife, loving mother and faithful sister and friend.

Survivors include her loving husband James L. McDade of King, N.C.; a daughter, Sarah N. McDade of Carrolton; a son, Joshua L. McDade of King, N.C.; three stepchildren, Jeremy L.

She was a blessing to six grandchildren, and a myriad of great nieces and nephews who loved her dearly and will miss her.

Gail McDade was a Chrisitian who walked the walk and suffered with Christ. Her heart went out to those who did know Jesus. She was always concerned about others finding Jesus and eternal life. Her example will be a challenge to follow for us all, but a challenge we will endeavor to honor her with. She would want any one reading this to knwo that God sent his only Son to redeem us from our sins with His blood on the cross in order to give us everlasting life; the life that Gail McDade now enjoys, without suffering, in the arms of the Jesus she so loved.

The familly will receive friends and relatives at the home of Williams Funeral Home in Milledgeville. There will be a gathering of family from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Thursday at the funeral home.
