Gail Lincoln passed away at her home in San Marcos, Calif., on Wednesday, April 23, 2008, after a lengthy battle with Alzheimer's. She was 61 years old.
Gail moved to the Wood River Valley in the early 1980s with her son Kevin and her husband, Steve "Grahambo" Graham. They built a small log house in East Fork and settled in for many years with her horses and many pets. Gail wore several hats over the years but most people remember her days at Magic Mountain Music, Video West and Chateau Drug. She made many, many friends and will be remembered for her kindness and smiling face.
Gail loved camping, fishing and spending time with friends and her animals. Gail and Steve could be found most weekends during the summer camping at Redfish Lake. She fell in love with the Wood River Valley and missed it ever since she left in the late 1990s.
Gail was a wonderful mother and considered her son Kevin to be her best friend. There was nothing they couldn't talk about. Although these last few years were very difficult, her son Mike did a remarkable job taking care of her and we are sincerely grateful to him. Gail will be greatly missed but we are thankful she is now in a better place.
Gail leaves behind her two sons, Michael Lincoln of San Diego, Calif., and Kevin Lincoln of Hailey. She also leaves behind her four grandchildren, Mikaela and Makenna Lincoln of San Diego and Mesa and Lana Lincoln of Hailey.
Gail's favorite place to eat was the Pioneer Saloon and everyone is invited to an informal gathering there on Friday, May 2, at 4:30 p.m. Please show up and raise a glass in celebration of her life and friendship.
