To Gaynor's family, I am so sorry to learn of Gaynor's death. I went to high school with her in Sturgeon Bay and we were good friends. We had many good times at her house making pizza and also had fun at her slumber party. I will always remember all of the laughs and good times we had. With sympathy, Judy (Haen) Delwiche
