Gale sat in front of me in homeroom for 3 years.  She was just a really neat human being.  Lovely person with a ready smile.  Our paths crossed seldom after graduation.   I came across she and Chuck Ostergaard walking to church one Sunday.  I saw her, again,  in Kenosha Memorial Hospita,l after the birth of one her children in 1965-6 (?).  I was going home from the unit I worked on (4 Cooper) and you had to cross the old OB to get to elevators.   I am glad I knew her.
