Gayle and Kaye Cornaby

Class of 1969 ~ H. Gayle Murphy. She attended BYH until 1967, where she made many friends. She transferred to Provo High School, where she graduated in 1969. She married Kaye Cornaby. Her brother is Joel Murphy, BYH Class of 1967. ~ ~ ~ ~ HER OBITUARY: Gayle Lynn Murphy Cornaby passed away Saturday morning, February 21st, 2009, after a courageous 7-year battle with cancer and Cushing disease. She had just celebrated her 58th birthday on Thursday surrounded by family, neighbors and co-workers. She was born on the 19th of February 1951 in Provo, Utah to Joseph Robison Murphy and Loneta Mangus Murphy and then moved to Lincoln, Nebraska where her family resided until 1961. The family spent the next 15 summers residing in Yellowstone Park where Gayle's father served as a Ranger Naturalist. She attended elementary school in Lincoln and Orem after the family returned to Utah. Gayle attended BY High through 1967 and then graduated from Provo High in 1969. She began her career at age 21 at the Utah Valley Regional Medical Center as a unit secretary in the mother-baby department and served there faithfully for 37 years until the time of her death. She was grateful to her supervisors for allowing her to continue there during many months of chemotherapy during the last few years. Gayle married Kaye Cornaby in 1971 and they were later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple in 1978. They have lived in both Provo and Orem where they raised 3 children: son Brandon (wife Cindy), son Brice (Stacey) and daughter Breann (Derek Olsen). Gayle was extremely proud of her 10 grandchildren and loved to spend time with them in her home whenever possible. She loved to travel with her family and continued a tradition of annual trips to Yellowstone and Grand Teton Parks with all the grandkids and many times her siblings and extended family members. Her favorite retreat during the last few years has been to Palm Springs, California to spend winter days relaxing in the warm sunshine at the home of her brother David and his partner Glenn Texeira - whom she considered "another brother." Her hobbies were photography and family and she devoted all of her spare time to recording their activities and then sharing these memories with others. In addition to her husband Kaye, children and grandchildren, she is survived by her: brothers Joel (Sharon), Robert, David (Glenn ), Phil (Miriam) Murphy; sister-in-law Dawn (Bill) Aaron, mother-in-law Dorris Cornaby, and sister-in-laws Colleen (Charles) Jarvis and Collette Thomas, uncles Don Murphy, LeRoy Mangus, Wally Mangus, and aunts Rebecca Sutton and Jewell Hepworth. She has numerous nieces, nephews and cousins who have been a tremendous source of love and strength for her over the years. She was preceded in death by a grandson Dustin, both parents Joe and Loneta, and all of her grandparents. Her "extended family" has been her co-workers at UVRMC who have shown love and compassion toward her during her final stages of this difficult journey. The family also wishes to express our deepest gratitude to Dr. Wendy Breyer and her entire staff at the IHC Cancer facility in American Fork for their tender care for Gayle. Funeral services for Gayle will be Thursday, February 26, 2009, at 11 am at the Heather Ridge 1st Ward Chapel, 450 E. 2000 North in Orem. Viewing will be at the Walker Sanderson Funeral Home, 646 E. 800 North in Orem on Wednesday, the 25, from 6 to 8 pm and from 9 - 10:30 am at the chapel the morning of the services. Interment will be in the Orem City Cemetery. Condolences may be sent to the family at
