IN THE CARE OF

Rhoton Funeral Home

Gail Phyllis Gray was a loving, caring, and giving wife, mother, granny, sister, aunt, and friend. Born December 14th, 1947, in Norfolk, Virginia to David and Clara Levin, she went home to the Lord on September 14th, 2022, in Carrollton, Texas at the age of 74. She is survived by her daughter Andrea Braswell and husband William, son David Gray and wife Laura; grandchildren Hunter, Halle, and Hayden Braswell, Noah and Samuel Gray; great grandson Ori Sowell; brother Jay Levin and wife Linda; brother-in-law Bill Gray; and many cousins, nieces, and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband Jimmy Gray; parents David and Clara Levin; sister Carol Levin; sisters-in-law Sue Grant and Connie Gray; nephew Michael Levin; and niece Kimberly Grant. Gail moved to Texas as an infant and graduated in 1966 from Hillcrest high school in Dallas, Texas. She also attended River Dell high school while living for a period in Oradell, New Jersey. Gail married Jimmy Gray on January 28th, 1967, whom she initially met on a blind date. She became a stay-at-home mother upon the births of her children Andrea and David. After Jimmy’s passing, Gail earned a nursing degree from El Centro College of Dallas, receiving the highest examination score in her graduating class, and enabling her to professionally share her caring nature with others. She enjoyed a long career working in Parkland Hospital’s newborn nursery and prenatal health clinics. Gail retired from nursing in 2011 with excitement to spend more time with her family and on her crafting pastimes. Devoted to her family, she was especially supportive of and enthusiastic for her children and grandchildren’s life achievements and many activities. Personal handmade gifts for family, friends, and charitable organizations were her passion. Along her journey, Gail discovered sewing retreats where she had “sew” much fun with her dear friends. Gail also enjoyed vacation travel, a cup of coffee, any type of chocolate, Tex-Mex food, and laughing with friends and family. Having been born into and raised in the Jewish faith, Gail received Jesus Christ as her Lord and savior as a young woman, believing that he is the Messiah promised in the Torah. Gail lived out 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 by sharing true selfless love with those around her. She will be greatly missed by many and will always be remembered in our hearts.
