Gale was a wonderful and very funny person. For years we enjoyed breakfast, laughs, family talks and nostalgic discussions. There were always the jokes about Cleveland, the burning rivers, “road trips” and microphones in the staff “lounge”. Gale’s wit was quick and normally hilarious. Although I haven’t seen Gale in years, just knowing she was happy and had her little chihuahuas made me feel close to her. She will never be forgotten.

Sincerest condolences on the loss of your spouse, sister, aunt and dog mom, Gale. I had to the pleasure of working with Gale at Keansburg High School from 1995 - 1997. She was a great mentor to a teacher who was greatly challenged working there. She had great tips on how to handle everything. She cared a lot about the betterment of her students, helping colleagues and was a strong union representative. I am thankful for her help. I always say the Keansburg High School faculty that I worked with during those years was one of the best faculties I have ever worked with. Gale was definitely a reason for the faculty being such a good one. May she rest in peace. Prayers for comfort to her family.

I'll never forget walking into 9th grade English class, "Gale" I'd previously heard she was strict and ruled with an iron fist! I was terrified, but quickly learned she was kind and compassionate... she only wanted the best for all her "kids". Gale, was one of a kind, beautiful soul, and I'm going to miss her dearly, I've known her 35 years and will miss our hilarious conversations... rest peacefully with the angels Gale 💖
