Gayle Marie Brunner

Dec. 13, 1944 – June 20, 2009

Gayle Marie Brunner (nee Warren), 64, found peace Saturday, June 20, 2009, at her home in Mukwonago surrounded by her three children and older brother.

Gayle was welcomed into the world Dec. 13, 1944, by her parents Gaylord and Harriet (nee Sayles) Warren of Genesee. She married Kenneth W. Brunner on June 27, 1964, at Trinity Lutheran Church in Waukesha.

Gayle’s love of people was truly apparent by all the caregiving she had done for others, and by her dedication for heading a carnival benefiting MDA for many years. Gayle loved the outdoors, animals, floral arranging, the Green Bay Packers, rummage sales and her family and friends.

She is survived by her children, Brian and Jennifer Brunner of Mukwonago, and Shelly (Rik) Sadler of North Prairie; grandchildren, Josh, Jeremi and Justina Sadler of Mukwonago and North Prairie; brother, Ronald (Lupe) Warren of Oxford; her buddy, Smokey; and many other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Kenneth; and sister; Stephanie.
