Gayle Lynn Stevenson
Born: 12/18/1959, Ada, Oklahoma
On July 25th, Gayle McKeel Stevenson, 60, peacefully passed away at her home in Moab, Utah.
Gayle was born on 12/18/59 to Larry McKeel and Marilyn Siedentoph in Ada, Oklahoma. Her family moved to Las Vegas, Nevada early on in her youth where she was raised and attended school. After graduation she had several jobs including working as an office manager at a stock brokerage firm as well as office manager for a gaming company.
Gayle married James 'Todd' Stevenson in 1992. In 1996 she moved to Moab with her family where she worked at the Spanish Valley Feed Store, which later became the Stagecoach Grill. She eventually moved on to the Spanish Trail Shell Station and Karen’s K-9 campground before she was unable to work any longer.
A loving wife, mother and recent grandmother, Gayle is survived by her husband Todd, her sons Brandon McKeel and Matthew Stevenson; father of baby Eden, two sisters; Patti and Marianne, her in laws; Rose, Troy, Russell, and Audra, and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. Gayle was known well throughout the community and leaves behind countless friends who knew her as a beautifully outgoing, charismatic, loving person. She always gave care to others before herself. People knew that they could count of her for advice and support. If she could do something to help, she always would. Laughter always followed when Gayle was in the room. She was a great joy to be around and her witty, funny personality always had a way of lightening up the situation.
She will be cremated. Her family has decided not to have a funeral and instead have opted to have a potluck memorial, a celebration of her life on Saturday August 8th from 11am – 1pm at the Rotary Park in Moab. In lieu of flowers please consider donating to the St. Jude’s children hospital. Everyone is welcome to attend.
