Gayle passed away March 8, 2015 at CHI St. Joseph’s Health in Dickinson, ND.

Marjorie Gayle was born November 23, 1937, the daughter of Paul and Dorothy (Simmons) Kincade.  She grew up and attended school in the Watseka, Illinois area. Gayle married the love of her life and soulmate, Patrick Kerry, on June 29, 1961.  They were blessed with three children, Dorothy, Mabel and Joseph.  Patrick’s career in the Air Force took Gayle and their three children to various bases across the country, which include Idaho, Nevada, England, Florida and California.  Gayle worked and retired from civil service as supervisor, head cashier and cashier for the commissary at Mountain Home AFB in Idaho after 30 years of service.  She later moved to Killdeer to live with her daughter, Mabel.  Gayle was very fond of her two dogs and she enjoyed collecting angels and seeing buffalo in the Theodore Roosevelt National Park near Medora.

Gayle, a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend – we love you so very much and will miss you greatly until we meet again in Heaven and we rejoice in knowing that your last breathe here on earth was your first breathe in Heaven.
