Many thanks to Pam Feingold for updating this information about our friend, Gayle Singer. Gayle's daughter, Petrina, is going to try to come to our Sunday Brunch so that she can meet Gayle's old friends and learn a little more about her mother's short life--she was a dear friend to many of us and sadly missed.
In the absence of an obituary, information was gathered from Gayle’s sister, Marci Galamba Asghari, and brother, Bob Galamba.
After high school, Gayle married Ben Salamo, and from that marriage she had a daughter, Petrina. Gayle and Ben separated before Petrina was two, and Gayle moved to New York City, where she met a sudden and untimely death. Petrina is now in her 40s with a son in the Army and a daughter in high school.
Marci Galamba Asghari, Gayle’s sister, remembers her as artistic, fun-loving and strong-willed. Marci also remembers Gayle watching out for her and being a wise big sister encouraging Marci to listen to her parents, and not make the same mistakes as Gayle. She couldn’t have asked for a better big sister and misses her tremendously.
Those of us who knew Gayle would agree that she was fun-loving, adventurous, inclusive and non-judgmental. Marci’s haunting question is, “What would Gayle have been like today?” I know her closest friends ponder the same.
