Gayle was born on March 13, 1935 to Richard Miller and Ann Elizabeth Daugherty in Ashland, Kentucky. Gayle had a love for family, travel, art, antiquing and reading. She grew up in Baltimore, Maryland and Covington, Kentucky attending Holmes High School. Her love for horses took her to a dude ranch in Colorado Springs for a short time. She lived in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky and Murray, Kentucky before settling in Florence, Kentucky for over 30 years. Her love for the Ocean led her to "retire" for a time in the quaint seaside town of Marblehead, Massachusetts before returning to Florence in 2007. Gayle is survived by her son, Ed Wagner and daughter-in-law Donna Wagner, of Florence, Kentucky, her daughter Rita Sprenkle and son-in-law Chris Sprenkle of Cincinnati, Ohio and one granddaughter, Hannah Wagner.
