She was born and raised in Richland and worked hard to make Richland a better place for her community by being actively involved in the early development of regulations regarding blowing dust and air quality in the Columbia Basin. She worked as a drafter for some years with Vitro and was passionate about social justice and the environment.

She is remembered as a gentle kind person with a free spirit who embraced all forms of spirituality.  She was an animal lover and avid bird watcher. She loved camping, the ocean and road trips. She was a lover of good rock and roll and always danced and sang like no one was watching. She was creative and built a home filled with treasures and collections.

Please make donations to the Parkside Adult Family Home in West Richland who cared for her with warmth compassion and love.

No services will be held as she wished family and friends to plan a celebration of life when the weather is warm and sunny for all to attend.

  • Gale, my treasured childhood friend, I pray for peace and love for you as you are reunited with your parents. I spend so many hours at the house with them and Glenda. My youngest, Jennifer Bergstrom Scalley, became long-time friend with Gale’s youngest Sarah in high school. I am so pleased that they are in contact and a comfort to each other. My deepest sympathy to the Ager-Meyer family.

  • Gale, my beloved special friend, from our early years together and throughout the years, we managed to bridge the gaps in time and still stay connected. I loved the calmness and peacefulness of your spirit. I loved hearing your beautiful voice when you sang. It always brought you such joy! Even later when you could no longer speak or recognize me, your eyes seemed to twinkle when a small piece of a song would break through. Music was one of your greatest joys. I loved you dearly as a best friend and I will always cherish my memories of you.
