Gale Ilene Deitrich, 79, of Niles, passed away on Saturday, October 29, 2022.
Gale was born on February 15, 1943, to the late Lloyd and Margaret (Orrick) Barnes in Niles, Michigan. After graduating from high school Gale wed the love of her life, Lawrence Deitrich. Together the two had two children, Traci and Bryan. Gale’s family was the most important thing in her life. When she was younger Gale loved to craft, she enjoyed crocheting, making ceramics and floral arrangements. She was also a wonderful artist. Her children will think of her every time the show Gunsmoke comes on because she religiously watched it at home.
