On Sunday, February 26, 2017 our wife, sweetheart, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend Madalyn Eyre Gale, 68, returned home to her Heavenly Father. Madalyn was born March 14, 1948 and raised in Minersville, UT by her loving parents Thurman & Irma Eyre. She attended Beaver High School and graduated from Montebello High School in Montebello, CA after marrying her high school sweetheart, David Gale from Beaver, UT in the St. George Temple. They spent the first six years of their marriage in southern California, then moved to Cedar City where they raised their family. They are the parents of four sons, have 14 grandchildren, and are looking forward to the birth of their first great-grandchild this spring. Her true joy was being a loving, supportive wife to Dave and mother to her boys and being involved in all their activities. She supported Dave in all his many endeavors and she took pride in helping all four of her sons achieve their Eagle Scout awards. She loved the outdoors, was an avid hunter, and loved fishing and camping with her family. She loved reading, was a wonderful cook, and when her boys were young she enjoyed playing on a city league softball team. She was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and enjoyed serving in many callings. She served as both a Relief Society President and Primary President. Her favorite callings were in the Young Women program where she made many great memories and friendships. She was always giving of herself and was all about loving and serving others. Madalyn is survived by her sweetheart, David Gale of Cedar City; her children, Todd (Sandra) Gale of Parowan, UT; Kurt (Gaylynn) Gale of Draper, UT; Wade (Melanie) Gale of Summit, UT; and Kyle Gale of Minersville; her brothers Gordon (Sheri) Eyre of Beaver, UT; Calvin (Diane) Eyre and Gayle (Sheila) Eyre of Richfield, UT. She was preceded in death by her parents Thurman & Irma Eyre, her brother and sister-in-law Dale & Carla Eyre, sister-in-laws Anne (Gordon) Eyre and Carolyn (Calvin) Eyre, daughter-in-law Retta Judd (Todd) Gale, and grand-daughter Karah Lynn Gale (daughter of Wade & Melanie).
