Gail Marie LeVeque, age 73, of Antigo died Sept. 29, 2021, at her home under the care of her family and LeRoyer Hospice.
Gail was born Dec. 1, 1947, in Antigo to the late Gerald and Katherine (Steinfest) Schmiege.
Gail was a graduate of Antigo High School class of 1965. On Nov. 16, 1967, she was united in marriage to James LeVeque.
Gail enjoyed raising her two boys. She was always eager and willing to join in the fishing and hunting that the family so loved. As a “hockey mom,” Gail contributed numerous hours to supporting her boys and the Antigo Area Youth Hockey Association. Because of her dedication to the organization, Gail was inducted into the AAYHA Hall of Fame. Gail was a member of Calvary Lutheran Church.

Her family was her greatest treasure. As a mom, she was always there for her sons. As a grandmother, her grandchildren brought her great joy, and she was so very proud of them.
