Carder, Gail

Gail B. Carder, age 67, passed away peacefully on Sunday, February 21, 2021 at 5:45 pm.

Mrs. Carder was born in Detroit, Michigan on July 10, 1953 to the late Howard and Lorraine Tackett. She attended Thurston High School where she graduated class of 1971. After she moved to Kentucky, she became a member of Milburn Chapel Cumberland Presbyterian Church and attended college to pursue a career as a Certified Scrub Technologist (CST).She was employed by Western Baptist Hospital until 1984 when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.

She enjoyed watching TV, her favorites included The Property Brothers, Law & Order SVU and Everybody Loves Raymond. But Gail’s greatest love was being Nana to her five grandchildren. She will be remembered for her feistypersonality, her strength in the face of adversity and that she never met a stranger. She had a beautiful heart, charming smile, and quite frankly, was a “hoot and a half.” Everyone she met was made better just by knowing her.

Gail is survived by her two daughters, Laura Thompson (Marshall) of Paducah and Lindsey Flood (Chris) of Paducah; three stepchildren, Terri Cathey of Paducah, Tim Carder (Angie) of Boaz and Cindy Cruse (Steven) of Boaz; one brother, Ralph Tackett of Mayfield; five grandchildren, Emma Thompson (5), Eleanor Thompson (2), Madelyn Flood (11), Lydia Flood (9), and Scarlett Flood (7 months); and her special care giver, Shelly Tucker.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Jerry Carder, whom she was married to for thirty wonderful years and her loving parents, Howard and Lorraine Tackett.

Funeral services will be held at 2:00 pm on Thursday, February 25, 2021 at Milner & Orr Funeral Home of Paducah with Rev. Jim Sloan officiating. Burial will follow at BurkleyCemetery.

Visitation will be held from 12:00 pm until the 2:00 pm service time on Thursday, February 25, 2021 at Milner & Orr Funeral Home of Paducah.
