She is survived by her husband, Lionel; father Ron; brother,Craig; and two stepsisters, Sharon and Janice, who all loved her so very much.
Born March 13, 1952, Gayle attended Sunset View Elementary School, Dana Junior High and Point Loma High School, graduating with honors.
After high school, Gayle, Lionel and their good friend, Arnold Murillo, traveled in a 1957 Volkswagen bus in Panama, then moved on to South America for 2 1/2 years.
Gayle always knew how to have a good time and how to make those around her smile. She had a love of all animals and — not just saying it — wanted peace on Earth.
She will be missed by all who knew her. To know her was to love her. She was the classic surfer girl and is now with the Good Lord.
