Gayle Katarincic

Resided in Gladstone, MI
Died January 8, 2005

Gayle L. Katarincic, age 72, devoted wife, mother, and Christian went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, January 8th, 2005. Gayle lived at 1622 Montana Ave.; Gladstone but had been residing at the Christian Park Health Care Center in Escanaba for the past month. Gayle was born March 20th, 1932 to Charles and Janie (Belanger) DuRoy. Gayle has endured many medical hardships in the last months of her life but through her struggles, her faith never faltered and she kept her sense of humor even during her last days.
She was a 1950 graduate of the Gladstone High School. Gayle married John E. Katarincic January 19th, 1952 in Lakewood, Ohio. John was an engineer on the ore boats which kept him away from home for months at a time and when they had children, Gayle was a stay-at-home mom. She did a fantastic job of raising their children. After John retired, she became a Fuller Brush Representative until failing eyesight made continuing in that capacity too difficult for her. In recent times, Gayle could be seen working at her daughter and son-in-law

    She was a very nice lady. We used to have a lot of fun snowmobiling with her and John.

    My sympathies go out to all the family and friends in this difficult time. Some of my earliest childhood memories include aunt Gail, uncle John, and cousins Tim and Sue.

    I have a few pictures of Gail and John posted on my website here:

    Sue and family, I will lift you up in prayer at this difficult time. I remember your mom coming into my store and she was such a nice, joyous, gentle lady. She will be missed.

    Gayle was the Mom of my best friend, Sue, so I was the recipient of her generosity. I especially enjoyed going to “camp” with them. Lots of good memories.
