Gayle Anne Broadbent-FerrisBeloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, and friend Gayle Broadbent-Ferris passed away suddenly Tuesday evening, October 27.
Gayle loved all small brave creatures. She taught us to take spiders outside rather than step on them. She could reach out and make a connection with anyone, drawing them out of their shell. She had a very strong sense of justice and was never afraid to speak her mind.
Gayle was an amazing artist. She loved to create using found and recycled materials. She was always exciting to be around. Every day was always the best day. Every place she explored was always the most beautiful she had seen. Gayle loved the Pacific Northwest. She loved the big trees, the water, the friends she found here. She loved going to the beach for oysters, clams and geoducks. She loved hunting for wild mushrooms. She loved gardening. She loved to find heirloom plants at old abandoned houses and plant the seeds in her garden, and distribute the seeds to friends and family.
She is greatly loved and will be missed deeply by her husband and son, Scott and Jacob Ferris, her family, and friends.
From 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Wednesday, Nov. 4, 2009 friends and family are invited to gather at the South Sound Manor, 455 North Street SE, in Tumwater to pay respects and share remembrances of Gayle.
