Gayle was born to Bernard and Ada Dohrman on December 3, 1937 in Council Bluffs, Iowa. After graduating from Pasadena High School, Class of 1956, Gayle completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Art and Minor in English, from the University of Houston. Gayle then used her talents as a Special Ed Teacher in Friendswood, Texas. Gayle then made a career change to be a Branch Manager for Heights Savings & Loan. She continued with Heights Savings until the birth of her third child so she could stay home full-time to care for her children. Gayle was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother.
