Gwen Vaile was born June 11, 1936, to Dorothy and Denzel Smith. She was their only child. Gwen was raised in both Browning and Whitefish. She married Albert Vaile Jr. and settled in the Babb area.
Gwen was a stay at home mom while raising their three children. She then worked as a waitress at the old Babb Cafe before she began her career as an instructional aide at the Babb School for some 44 years and saw nearly every kid in Babb through elementary school. She won many education achievement awards during this time. In her spare time she was a timer at local rodeos that her husband and sons participated in.
After retirement Gwen suffered a massive stroke and lived out her remaining days at Glacier Care Center in Cut Bank, when on Oct. 18 she left us to go home to be with our Lord Jesus, her husband, mother and dad.
She is survived by her children Gus (Traci), Loris (Gordon) and Jim (Lanaya); grandchildren Merelle, Stephanie (Beauford), Caleb, Logan, Jordyn and Jenny; great grandchildren Raymond, Ranelle, Ty-Neil, Thane and Camden.
A memorial service is planned for later next spring. That was her favorite time of year. Thank you all for your condolences and prayers.
