I was so very sorry to hear about the death of Gaylynne. She was a wonderful person and gave so much to our community. She contributed so much to our health and safety.

She will be missed by many of her friends in our community.

Gaylynne was a close friend and classmate of mine in high school. She was always one of the most gentle and caring people I knew. I only wish I had stayed in touch with her after those days. My great comfort is knowing she loved and served the Lord Jesus Christ and is with Him now.
