“Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your Lord.”

Gail entered into the presence of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on April 13, 2013.

She was preceded into heaven by her parents, Doug and Virginia Stone, by her stepfather Jasper Ellis, and by a stepbrother Doug Ellis.

Those left to celebrate her life include her husband of 35 years, Chuck Poindexter, her son Michael (Michelle) of Redding, and her daughter Julie (Matt) Ballard of Manteca, stepsons Scott Poindexter of Lathrop, and Jeff (Caroline) Poindexter of Stead, NV. She also leaves two sisters, Carol (Neil) Heath of West Point, and Julia (Dennis) Kunter of San Tan Valley, AZ and her three brothers,  Steven (Jeannette) Ellis of Gridley, Tim Ellis of Sierra Vista, AZ, and John (Naomi) Ellis of Bisbee, AZ. She is also survived by two brothers,   Jimmy Ellis, and Robert  Ellis, and seven stepsisters, Darlene Boots, Connie Holley, Paula Shuppherd, Myrna Hagler, Karen Rash, Becky Ingerson, Sherrill Roderick. She very much loved her grandchildren, who also survive her. Mercedes Sandhu, Monique Sandhu,  Nikki Sandhu, Matthew Ballard, Bella Ballard, all of Manteca. Jordan Petersen, Justus Petersen of Redding, and C.J. Poindexter
of Stead, NV.

She enjoyed many activities while she was with us. She loved to ride horseback more than anything. She also enjoyed fishing and camping. She liked to read, particularly the Little House series by Laura Ingalls Wilder. She liked trips to the ocean and enjoyed crocheting, a skill she was able to pass down to some of her granddaughters.

Gail was a faithful follower of Jesus Christ. Her life was an example of faithfulness and perseverance. She loved Jesus with all her heart and showed her love through her life and words. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her.

A celebration of Gail’s life will be held at Crossroads Grace Community Church on Moffat Blvd. in Manteca on April 29th at 12:00 p.m.
