I worked with Gayle many years at Elm City plant then she started going to our church . She was a lot of fun and would do anything for you. And I remember she really loved her pets. She will be missed.

I worked with Gayle for many years at Milliken. I always found her to be pleasant and easy to work with. Later I assisted her with maintaining her computer. She was very appreciative and I enjoyed being able to help her accomplish her goals. I am praying to God for peace and comfort to be with the family members during this time of loss. God bless you.
