Gayla married Harold Hohn on July 31,1953 in Lubbock, TX. Harold took her from the big city to the farm in O’Donnell. She was a perfect homemaker, wonderful cook, outstanding seamstress and artist.
Her greatest love was children and was the greatest “Gra’Mommmie/Grammie” in the world. Grand children and great grands adored her, and she spent hours playing games, painting, and watching movies with them. Her love for children extended to the families of First Baptist Church, showing the Love of Jesus to the babies and toddlers.
Gayla and Harold traveled after retirement visiting grandchildren and welcoming great grandchildren. Genealogy was a passion, traveling across the country, and to Scotland and Germany, discovering members of their family trees and connecting with newfound relatives.
