Tribute

GAYLE L. REGEL (nee KINSEY), aged 67, passed away on November 14, 2022. Beloved wife of Bernard; loving mother of Eric; mother-in-law of Tia (nee Robb); loving daughter of Delores (nee Guthrie) and late Clyde; sister of the late Kevin; sister-in-law of Donna and Charles Wyatt, Paul and Lana Regel, and Loretta Regel; aunt of Kyle Kinsey, aunt-in-law of Amy Kinsey and Adam Taylor, and great-aunt of Jaxon and Acen Kinsey.
Born in 1955, she spent her early years living and enjoying farm life in Ohio. She was married in 1980 and moved to Louisiana, living in Metairie, Kenner, and most recently River Ridge. She was a recently retired registered nurse, admired for her knowledge and respected as a mentor. If you had asked her to name the most memorable day of her life, it would be the day she gave birth to the joy of her life, Eric.
If you could sum up her life in a few words, they would be “family, friends, faith, food and fun”. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and in-law. Throughout her life, she enjoyed spending time with her lifelong friends. Inspired by her son’s faith, she recently converted to be Roman Catholic and was active in her church. She loved to go out to eat with her husband and friends; in typical Louisiana style (which she always embraced), each meal would be spent talking about where to eat next. Whether it was hiking in Yellowstone, hosting a Saints game party, dressing up for Halloween, or just hanging out with friends or family playing games, she just enjoyed life and lived life to the fullest.
She may have been called by our Father too early, but she left lasting memories to her family and friends.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Second Harvest Food Bank, where she volunteered at https://no-hunger.org/, or Susan J. Komen Breast Cancer at https://www.komen.org/breast-cancer/.
