Gayle Lorraine Williams (Kincaid), 75, passed away peacefully Sunday, September 15, 2019 at home. She was currently living with her daughter in Kennewick, WA.

Gayle was born in Spokane, WA on January 7th, 1944. She graduated Lind Jr - Sr High School in 1962. Gayle married and had 3 children; Kevin, Kenny and Jolene. In 1987 she had rekindled an old flame and married her high school sweetheart, Robert W. Williams. She gained two more children; Dale and Sandi. Together Gayle and Robert had five children that they were very proud of.

Family and friends were always important to Gayle. She never missed a birthday or special occasion. One of her favorite things to do was to create fun and memorable games for the holidays; Gum Drop Bingo, Adult Easter Egg Hunt (as well as one for the little ones), and a variety of gift exchange ideas at Christmas. There was always plenty to go around. She always made sure everyone was included and memories were made.

Other interests that she had included knitting/crocheting, playing Bingo, cooking, fishing and she was always crafting some type of decoration for the season! She never gave herself much credit for being creative but one only had to look at her flower arrangements, gift baskets, or her apartment door to see that she really had quite a creative touch.

Gayle was predeceased by her husband, Robert W. Williams. She is lovingly remembered by her children; Kevin Starring, Kenny Starring (wife Pam), Jolene Arlington (husband Todd), Dale Williams (wife Ann) and Sandi Welsh (husband Carey). She is survived by two sisters Karen Booth and Lynda Branson. Gayle has many grandchildren and great grandchildren that will miss her.

Graveside services will be held at Delight cemetery in Lind, WA on October 19th @ 1 p.m. There will be a celebration of life following the services at the home of Kevin Starring, 91 S Hwy 21, Lind, WA.

In lieu of flowers, feel free to make donations to Lind Volunteer Firefighters (P.O. Box 9, Lind, WA 99341) or Adams County Pet Rescue (1961 W Bench Rd., Othello, WA 99344).
