Not sure what to say?

Too young and too vibrant to be whisked away so suddenly. I would always look forward to celebrating the holidays with her and she was always ready to join in when we sang the Beatles songs, whom she loved. Although, technically my 2nd cousin, she was much more a close first cousin and I will miss her vibrant personality and distinctive voice at our future get-togethers.
Rest in Peace Gayle,
Your cuz Doug

Gayle is gone
"7th grade I met you, loved you from the start
It was then you were placed inside my heart.
Had so much fun, met people, went places
Called you Sterling silver because you wore braces
Took until high school to laugh about that
My wedding you wore permed hair under a straw hat.
If only I could see you one more time,
Oh God how I miss my partner in crime.
It must be a mistake, something went wrong
but I do know now, you are...

A truly kind soul-who always thought of others before herself. She leaves us much too soon but with joyful memories of her love for life, her love for her husband Dean and her never ending love for her two beautiful Daughters-Chelsea and Karly. Sylvia Garrett-Olson & Family

So sorry to learn that such a truly sweet, passionate, bright and loving person is no longer here to share all that Gayle was with those who were fortunate enough to be part of her life. Growing up together with Gayle, I have always felt a bond and have had a place deep in my heart for the girl I met in Jr. High, and later the women that I had the opportunity to share many wonderful times and memories with.

Gayle's passing reminds us all of the times shared and how she in her own...

Gayle and I never went to school together but we met when we were both in Junior High at Kristen Faulkner's house. Gayle was a lot of fun. Ten years later we ended up working together in corporate accounting for what was then Pacific Northwest Bell. I not only appreciated her adventuresome streak, but I also respected her intelligence and hard work. We carpooled and socialized together until I had a baby. In fact she organized the office baby shower for me (28 years ago). Life got busy...

It has been many years since I have seen Gayle. I am very sad to read of her passing. I recall her as lots of fun and with a great sense of humor but also as a genuine,open person who was a pleasure to be with. We had a few giriel outings and while not tattling too much, I will always remember the laughs around the toe the size of an Idaho Spud. Diane Buckley (friend of Susan Sterling)
