Gayle (Mumsy) Bledsoe, 83, of Big Spring, Texas died peacefully on March 17, 2019 in the caring and loving community at Park View Nursing Center. She was born June 30, 1935, in Spur, Texas, the daughter of J.C. (Chap) and Callie Mae Reese.

She spent her childhood in Spur and graduated from Spur High School. Gayle moved to Big Spring in the summer of 1956. She was the secretary for First United Methodist Church until 1972.
