She graduated from Renton High School in 1953 and from the University of Washington in 1957 with a degree in Education. While at the UW she was a member of the Alpha XI Delta Sorority. She remained very close to many of her high school and sorority friends throughout her life. In 1956 she met Warren Jones and they were married the following year. She and Warren enjoyed family, camping, golfing, skiing, dancing and all the friends with whom they shared these activities. Gayle was a homemaker while her children were young and then went back to work at Westside Federal S&L in Personnel. Later she spent many years in Personnel at Bank of America. Gayle was an active and very involved member of the P.E.O. Sisterhood and loved her member sisters.
