She was loved by all who knew her and will be greatly missed.

    So sad to hear, Gale was a dedicated Esco gang member and life long friend. She is a fine example of inside/outside beauty. One of the kindness people I’ve ever known.

    My condolences to all friends and family. She will be dearly missed.
