Barbara was born in Waco, Texas and lived there until she moved to Clifton in 1980. She worked in long term care, touching many lives along the way. She never met a stranger and always had a smile and a hug for you. Baking was one of her many joys that she did for her family and friends. She enjoyed good loud trucks (just ask Bubba) and dancing in her younger days. Her granddaughters kept her busy as she attended many activities including volleyball and softball. She was always their biggest fan. We will miss all her text and telling us she “loved us bunches”.
Barbara was preceded in death by her parents, father, Jesse R. May and mother, Bobbie M. Savage; stepfather, James Savage; husband, John T. Gillaspie; brother-in-law, John Blascovich.
She is survived by her son, Leonard (Bubba) Gayle, Jr. and wife, Alisa; sister, Jeanie Blaskovich; granddaughters, Savanah and Peyton Gayle; cousin, Donna McDonald Gammel; best friend, Linda Lairdon; family friends, bonus kids and friends that are family.
