In her youth Gayle attended Hollins High School and later worked for Woodcocks Solicitors for about thirteen years before working in the Arndale Centre for a few years afterwards.
Gayle loved animals so she enjoyed visiting Wildlife Parks, Safari Parks and Zoo’s as well as horticultural shows, including the Great Harwood Show.
She took pleasure in going out for day trips with her family to the seaside, especially Blackpool where she liked the slot machines, she also liked visiting museums.
She loved going away on holiday and has visited many places including France, Tenerife, Marmaris in Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria and also Benidorm on the Costa Del Sol in Spain. In her spare time she enjoyed colouring and art as well as going on occasional special spa days.
Gayle will be very sadly missed by all her family and friends.
Gayle was a much loved mum of Rebecca, Charlotte, Brian, Geoff, Gareth & Derek, a treasured grandma of Isabella, Jessica, Jackson, Charlotte, Reece, Nicole and Courtney, a dear sister of Brian, Dave, Debra and Julie, a loving partner of Alan and a best friend of Daisy the Dog.
A celebration of life service service will take place at 12.20pm, on Monday 16th April 2018 at Accrington Crematorium.
