Gail Healy Kemp received her wings on Thursday, May 11, 2017 after a valiant battle against pulmonary fibrosis. Having fought the battle with every ounce of passion and energy, Gail was the fortunate recipient of 2 lung transplants due to the unselfish acts of anonymous families that she never knew. For these most unselfish gifts, she and her family are, and will forever be, eternally grateful for the 11 extra years they got to spend together.
Growing up in Smithtown, New York, Gail moved to Florida in 1988 where she met her husband shortly after arrival Working in both New York and Florida for various travel agencies and an airline, Gail made the career shift to the job she had dreamed of her entire life, becoming a mother. This happened upon the birth of her first son in 1993 and a second son in 1997. Being a mother to her two boys was the greatest and most rewarding profession she could ever imagine and she embraced the “gift” of motherhood like no other. Whether assisting with homework, giving hugs and kisses out like candy, or being politically correct when the Baltimore Ravens played the New England Patriots (her son’s two favorite teams), Gail loved the career of “mom.” Although taken way too soon, she is still taking on the role of “mom’” just from a higher vantage point.
Gail is survived by her parents, Gaylord and Doloris Healy, her brother and sister-in-law, Glenn and Donna Healy, her nieces, Katie and Megan Healy, her in-laws, Tim and Karen Kemp, another sister-in-law, Kamy Kemp, her husband, Keith Kemp, her dog Tucker that provided hours of companionship, and most importantly, her two loving sons, Austin Kemp and Brady Kemp.

As well, Gail also requests, anyone who is able to, please sign up to be an organ and tissue donor in her honor.
