The Guest Book is expired.
Gayle was born April 26, 1953, to Orin and Alta Haugan in Bozeman. She spent her childhood years there, graduating from MSU in 1974.
Life to Gayle was always a new adventure. She was always game to try everything and anything, from being a cop to skydiving, to riding on the back of a Harley, seeing new things and places. The quieter side of Gayle brought out her many talents. She could knit a blanket for a baby, paint a picture or card for a loved one or friend or cook a wonderful holiday meal for the family. Gayle always made things special.
Gayle is survived by her mother, Alta Newman of Bozeman; sister, Mary Sue (Keith) Creemer of Winter Park, Fla.; stepsister, Dona (Jack) Harris of Marinette, Wis.; her husband, Theron Moss of Spokane Valley, Wash.; a very special little dog, Faith, of Spokane Valley, Wash.; stepchildren, Tracy (Terry) Sullivan, Linnette Moss (Bruce Haman), Nick (Gina) Moss, all of Great Falls. She is also survived by five grandchildren, Danielle Baumgartner, Brayden and Dayne Sullivan, Kienne Cape and Allie Moss, all of Great Falls. There are many special cousins surviving.
She was preceded in death by her father, Orin Haugan; and her grandson, Leif Ronson Baumgartner.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 19, at Grand Avenue Christian Church in Bozeman.
Memorial donations may be sent to the donor's local peace hospice.
Arrangements are by Community Cremation Service Spokane Valley, (509) 926-2020.
