Gayle Ann Trusler gently left this life on Saturday, September 22, 2012, to join her baby sister and father in heaven.

Gayle was born in Billings on February 18, 1951. She was the second daughter of Calvit S. and Betty (Quanbeck) Trusler.

Gayle graduated from West High School and Eastern Montana College (MSU-B). She worked seven years as a social worker for Yellowstone County. In 1984 she moved to Washington D.C. and worked as an aide for several Congressmen. After her return to Billings, she co-owned a gift shop with her sister.

Gayle was preceded in death by her grandparents; uncles Bob Quanbeck and Stephen Trusler; her father; and baby sister.

Gayle is survived by her mother; her sister Sharon (Melvin) Miller; her niece Lea Ann (Todd) Zinne and nephews Steve (Stephanie) Miller and Greg (Diane) Miller; also by her aunt Shirley Quanbeck; and uncles Maurice (Barbara) Quanbeck, James (Elsa) Quanbeck, John Trusler and Tom (Suzanne) Trusler. She was a great-aunt to three nieces and three nephews.

Gayle enjoyed shopping, either for antiques or the perfect gift for someone. She was the family photographer and liked to spend time with the family. She will be greatly missed.

Cremation has taken place and graveside services will be held at a later date as per her wishes. Memorials may be made to the charity of the donor’s choice.

  1. Family and friends of Gayle,

    I met Gayle through a stock investment club. We were both members for over a decade. Through that connection, I would visit her store, Prairie Blossoms, when I was looking for something “Montana”. She was just about always there and with a big smile. Gayle believed in promoting area artists and provided a place for them to display their work. My daughter is a French Horn player and I can remember her playing in front of Gayle’s store during one of the Friday Art Walks. Gayle then gifted her with a pressed flower plaque. I will remember Gayle’s eager, bright eyes and ready smile. God bless you during this difficult time.

  2. I’m so sorry to hear about Gayle’s passing. She was one of my favorite people to visit with and always had such a positive attitude and every-present smile. I’ve missed her since the store closed but had hoped that she would be able to reopen it. My sincere condolences to the family.

    I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Gayle. I will always remember her as the picture taker at all of the family events she was part of. Every time I saw here down at the shop she had a smile on her face for me, and seemed like we saw each other every day, even though it may have been several months since we last meet. Our thoughts are out to all of the family.

  4. The family and friends of Mrs. Trusler have my sincere condolences. As you all go through the grieving process please know that there are others who care. Most importantly God cares, he promises to bring an end to all pain and suffering. Even death will be no more. We will even have a chance to see our dead loved ones again. – 2 Corinthians 1:3,4, Revelation 21:4, John 5:28,29
