Ardanelle 'Gail' McCool
A memorial service is being planned for Ardanelle "Gail" McCool of Sausalito, mother of actor David Carradine of Hollywood and former wife of the late actor John Carradine. Mrs. McCool died Jan. 26, 1989, at the Arden Wood Residence in San Francisco. She was 78.
Mrs. McCool was born and raised in Greeley, Colo., and had lived in Sausalito the past 16 years.
She retired in 1978 after working for Pacific Gas & Electric Co. for 25 years.
Mrs. McCool was an active member of the Christian Science Church in Belvedere and the Sausalito Senior Citizens Club.
She enjoyed gardening.
"She was kind of a mother hen and took care of strays - cats, dogs and people," said another son, Bruce Carradine of Sausalito.
Her family asked that memorial contributions go to the First Church of Christ, Scientist, Box 39, Belvedere, 94920.
