This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Gayle Geisendorff, 55, born on May 20, 1962 and passed away on May 23, 2017. We will remember her forever. 

This is a little about our Mom and what made her so special to us:

One of the things that everyone knows about our mom was that she was an outstanding cook just like her mom. Her house was no place to be on a diet. Our favorites were her chicken fried steak, chicken teriyaki, fried pork chops, and most of all her orange dreamsicle cupcakes.

Her love for animals was undeniable. From the time we were kids she would rescue any animal in sight. We often joke that she loved her dog Banjo more than her own kids.

In her days when she worked as a paralegal, she was one of the best, locking down jobs with top attorneys throughout Houston. She was so revered that many of her past employers wrote letters of recommendation for her after she left. My mom was a very intelligent woman. You couldn’t get anything past her.

She enjoyed watching reality tv shows along with playing spades. She was a lover of all types of music but especially country music. Her favorite long time hobbies were bowling and also going to Louisiana to gamble. Some of our fondest memories were at the bowling alley with our grandparents and Uncle Steve.

And what she loved most of all was her family. Family get togethers were what made her the happiest. From birthday parties at Nino and Pawpaw’s house to hanging out at the softball field she cherished any time she had with her loved ones. Her husband Ken stood by her through thick and thin and never wavered. His dedication and loyalty to her was a testament to the love that they shared. 

We miss her so much and know that she is looking down on us!

I got to know Gayle in 2009 and together we started our own team where we would alternate on being captains. Gayle knew so many people in the spades world so it didn’t take long before we had a great group of people in our Storm Riders team. Playing spades is not only the game itself when you are on a team, you get to know people on a personal level and great friendships are created, even marriages for some. Everybody loved Gayle! She was so easy going, always friendly and with a great sense of humour. She included everyone. If someone was missing from the room for some time, Gayle would try and get in touch with them to make sure they were ok. She was a very good spades player and was everyone’s favourite partner. Gayle and I had numerous talks on the phone over the years and I considered her my best online friend. We always talked about meeting and as we lived on two different continents, it was not that easy. However, we had talked about meeting this summer when we were supposed to travel to the states. I am totally heartbroken that she died this sudden and way too young. My heart goes out to Ken and her children and grandchildren. Please know that there were a lot of people that cared deeply for Gayle and she will be missed. Lill
