Gail Foster, age 51

Gail Foster, Nauwigewauk Loop Road, N.B., weak from chemotherapy treatments, was shot by her husband at her home on October 11, 2003 after complaining about his drinking. Gail made it to the driveway, but collapsed beside her car and died 15 minutes later. She might have survived her injuries if she had received medical assistance but her husband did not call 911 for several hours. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison for manslaughter. Gail’s relationship with her husband was marked by chronic violence. He isolated her, controlled her every move, and even threatened to shoot her. Despite this miserable treatment, Gail was a strong person who remained close to her friends. She was also dedicated to her job at the hospital. At the time of her death, she had been planning a trip to Toronto to receive a bone marrow transplant. She loved getting lost in a book or planting things in her garden, both of which provided a “peaceful time” - a retreat from the violence. Gail is deeply missed by her brothers, sisters, son and daughter-in-law who know she would have been thrilled to meet her first grandchild whom she never lived to see.
