Gayle Lee Shumaker

Rockledge - Gayle Lee Shumaker, 50, passed unexpectedly on the evening of Sunday September 13, 2020. Gayle was born on November 28, 1969 in Chippewa Falls, WI; daughter of Carl Heyder and Segundina Young; the youngest of four children. She served as a devoted Student Records Processing Specialist at Eastern Florida State College, her alma mater from which she graduated in 2017. Gayle was loved by all those who knew her and had a soul unlike any other. She was an avid fan of music and loved her dogs, Ryu and Keiko. It was her wish that there not be a service, which will be honored, we are asking that you remember her for the joy she brought to everyone she met. Gayle is survived by her significant other of 23 years, Al Mejia; her daughter Brittney Spry (Shumaker); son in law, Justin Spry; and two grandchildren, Daniel Spry and Elizabeth Spry.

Gayle helped to make my time working at EFSC some of the best times of my life. I remember looking forward to seeing her and a few others but always knowing she would have a rocking song to share with me. Gayle is a rockstar and she is SO loved and missed.

Gayle, I am thankful for the laughter and humor in-between our work emails and calls. Your leaving us so soon is a reminder to always have fun along the way. Memories can sometimes help to ease the sadness and heartbreak. My prayer to Al, your family and friends: May all your heartfelt memories always be near just when you need them the most when remembering Gayle.

Gayle, we were the fortunate ones to have you as a co-worker. You went the extra mile, and it was a pleasure to work with you for the past 17 years. Always "up" with a smile, and always genuinely interested in others. Until we met again....

Gayle, you are my soulmate, my Goddess and the love of my life. You were taken much too soon and the world is diminished without your presence. I will miss your smile, your funny laugh and your loving embrace. I pray that we will be reunited once again and we will rock hard like we always have. I will miss you terribly until then. Wait for me, my love. Until the time of our reunion, rest peacefully and know that you are loved.

Forever yours,

Al
