I met Gayle in South Haven Michigan nearly three years ago. It of course was due to hay trolleys for her “boys”

We became Facebook friends and when I found myself traveling in her vicinity prior to Christmas last year, God compelled me to make her a quilt. She said she liked sloths so sloths it was . As she was a crafter, she gifted me in turn with one of her noisy fun Christmas necklaces that I enjoyed this year.

She was a warm giving woman and I’m blessed to have known her. My prayers are with you Jamie and Tyler

Dear Jamie, Tyler & Family
Please accept our condolences on Gayle's passing. I enjoyed knowing and working with her at First Federal and then still keeping in contact with her at Sutton Bank and for many more years at Edward Jones. She was always so pleasant and happy and willing to help. We ask God's blessing on you and that he will give you comfort and strength in this difficult time.
