Gayle  Driediger

Obituary of Gayle Roxanne Driediger

Please share a memory of Gayle to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Gayle Roxanne (Kroeker) Driediger, Adventure Queen and Traveler, began her biggest adventure Sunday, May 1, 2022. Sadly, Douglas Driediger, her husband of 41 years and best friend for 50, will have to catch up with her later. 


She was not only a traveler, but a daughter (Henry and Lucille Kroeker), a sister (Shelley and Cindy), a mother (Lindsay and Roxanne), a mother-in-law (William and Jace), a grandmother (Indigo and Fox), and everybody’s best friend.


She had wanted a full Viking Funeral: archers on the shore firing flaming arrows at the wooden boat carrying her resting body out to sea… but a simpler celebration of this remarkable woman has been planned. Please join us at 4:00pm Sunday, June 19, at cSpace King Edward, 1721 29th Avenue SW, T2T 6T7, the home of Doug’s studio.


Gayle’s favourite songs will be the soundtrack, her favourite snacks (Callebaut chocolate, red wine) will refresh you, cheeses and root beer will also be on hand at Doug’s request. A looping slide show in the theatre will share her favourite memories and places. Doug’s drawings and paintings of her will be on display on the first-floor adjacent gallery space. Doug’s cousin Donald Goertz will complete the celebration with some remarks at around 5:00pm.


So many have cared for us, carried us, through difficult times. THANK YOU. Please consider stopping by for a visit so Doug can thank you in person.


For those who wish, donations may be made in Gayle’s name to the Kidney Foundation of Canada.
