Gayle Eileen Easton passed away on January 21, 2024 from complications of diabetes. She was born January 10, 1951 to Marguerite and Harlan Easton, the youngest of four daughters. She attended grade school in Maquoketa, Iowa and graduated from Marshalltown High School, Marshalltown, Iowa. She received her Bachelor of Physical Education Degree from Truman State University, formerly Northeast Missouri State University.

Gayle worked for Broadlawns Hospital in Des Moines for 38 years. First as a recreational therapist, then as a social worker. She enjoyed her work, cared about the people she helped, loved her family and friends and will be greatly missed by all who knew her. She loved dogs and through the years cared for at least one, sometimes two.

Gayle was preceded in death by her parents, Marguerite and Harlan Easton and a sister, Barbara Easton. She is survived by her sisters, Sandra (Len) and Martha Ann (Dennis); nieces and nephews, Neil (Kristen), Jason (Anna), Jennifer (Cole) and grand nieces and nephews, Keaton, Marguerite, Garret, Leila and Maya and many cousins.

A celebration of Gayle’s life will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions may be directed to the American Diabetes Association or an animal rescue organization of the donor’s choice. Online condolences are welcome at
