Gayle Lynn McFadden, 1953-2019. (via Drake Cremation and Funeral Services)

May 28, 1953 – Jan. 10, 2019

"To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die." – T Campbell

After a brief illness, Gayle passed away at RIH with her daughter and sister by her side. She was predeceased by her life partner Jack Aitchison in 2017.

Gayle is survived by her daughter Carmen, son Jason, granddaughters Jenah and Ivy, sister Yvonne, numerous nephews and nieces along with her uncles John and Albert.

Born in Kamloops, she was raised in the interior of B.C. She volunteered for a number of years at the Kamloops Food Bank and Friendship Society. Gayle had a kind, generous heart always willing to give of herself and help others in any way she could. Her infectious smile and witty humour will be truly missed by all who knew her.

A celebration of life will take place in Kamloops in the spring.

Donations in remembrance of Gayle to the Canadian Cancer Society or Diabetes Canada will be gratefully appreciated.

Cremation arrangements entrusted to Drake Cremation and Funeral Services.
