There were so many sides to this amazing, complex woman. From her early years working with the family-owned Midway Camp to her 20+ years planning and leading the Grapevine Festivals and Events Team, Gayle had a “get it done” attitude. She believed in giving back to her community. She was one of the original members of the Heritage Ambucs, Dirty Dozen, JW Foundation, Wine Pourers and Craft Brew Guild. Her love and affection for her community was rewarded. She was named “Miss Lake Grapevine” as a teenager, CVB Employee of the Year, Woman of the Year and received the Don Ramey Community Spirit Award as well as the Grapevine Masonic Lodge Community Builder Award winner and most recently the Grapevine Citizen of the Year Award. With her infectious smile, she was direct, tough, opinionated, independent and had a caring, loving heart of gold underneath. She loved unconditionally and was a fierce protector of her children, family and friends. Gayle lived a full and very accomplished life and those of us that knew her will greatly miss her passion, her directness and her love of family, friends and community. Survivors include: Carolyn, Hayden, Emily and Josh Foster; Dalton and Dylan Hall; Minnie Hall; Junior and Nancy Hall; Charlie and Faye Hall and friends from around the world. She is now in heaven with her son, Deke, and her father Leonard Hall. In lieu of flowers and to continue her passions, memorials may be mailed to P. O.
