Gayle Wilma Urban Gondeck
April 9, 2019
There is a favorite Girl Scout song about making new friends, keeping the old, one is silver and the other is gold. Gayle will always be my gold friend. We met through Girl Scouts over 20 years ago and became fast friends. We hosted events and trained together. I was especially honored, as her leader consultant, to watch her beloved Girl Scouts grow up. We shared common hobbies, a huge love of cats, and lots of laughs. She will always be in my heart and will be missed more than words can express.
