Gayle Patricia White
It is with great sadness that the family of Gayle White of New Maryland, announce her passing at Hospice House, Fredericton, Tuesday, October 17, 2017. Gayle leaves behind her loving husband, Eric White, of 44 years. She was the daughter of the late Spencer and Betty (Dibb) Price of Doaktown.
Also left to grieve is her daughter, Erika Creally (Jason) of Ottawa and son, Jason White (Stephanie) of Fredericton; five grandchildren are left without their loving grandmother - Owen, Liam, Quinn and Cailyn Creally and Anna White. Gayle also leaves behind her sister, Janice Taylor (Brent) of Stratford, PE; brother-in-law, Robert White; sisters-in-law, Cindy Manzer (Fraser) and Sally Price; as well as many friends. In addition to her parents Gayle was also predeceased by her brother, Terry Price.
Gayle was an elegant and vibrant lady who loved life. She faced cancer the same way she approached everything in life; with a positive attitude and a friendly smile. She enjoyed being active and loved the outdoors. In the summer she was in her gardens, golfing, walking, or heading to a beach. She didn't slow down any in the winter months, going to a gym, curling, skating and skiing down the slopes at Crabbe Mountain. She was a certified ski instructor and taught on the weekends for many years.
Gayle loved to travel and spent many summer vacations at Old Orchard Beach with her family and friends. Her and Eric made trips to the UK, continental Europe and the Mediterranean as well as numerous trips to the Carribean islands. She was part of a Fredericton travel group called the Blue Bandanas!
Gayle started her career working in the NB Government's Data Processing Center where Eric was also employed at the time. Gayle went on to work for several private sector computer companies and recently retired from CGI Information and Management Systems after 16 years of employment.
Gayle has chosen cremation and her family will place her ashes in the Hermitage Catholic Cemetery in Fredericton at a later date.
There will be no funeral service. The family will receive visitors in a social setting on Saturday, October 21, 2017, from 1 pm - 5 pm at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in the Junior Ballroom, Mezzanine Level. Gayle's five grandchildren will be serving Grammie's chocolate chip and scotch cookies, if they don't eat them all first.
