“All is Well”\nOur loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend passed away peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones after a battle with cancer. While fireworks celebrated her birth in Provo, Utah on Pioneer Day in 1946, Old Glory mourned her departure from this life on Veteran’s Day—fitting holidays for a woman who loved both church and country. \nGayla was born to loving parents, Jack Gillespie Cameron and Ruby Edwards and made wonderful childhood memories in Orem. As a child, she grew very close to her sisters and brother, and continued to strengthen these relationships throughout her life. Gayla was proud to be a cheerleader at Orem High School and a Cougerette at Brigham Young University. She married her sweetheart Dennis Nolan Barker on New Year’s Eve, 1973. On their 25th Anniversary, they were sealed in the LDS Jordan River Temple for time and all eternity along with their two sons, Alex and Ryan. \nGayla was not only a wonderful mother to her two boys, she was truly their best friend as well. She loved spending time outdoors gardening with her granddaughter, walking along the canal, finding new bottles for her bottle tree, and caring for her favorite feral cats, Chip, Blacky and Danny. A good garage sale was her biggest weakness and spent many a Saturday morning hunting for treasures. She also loved spending time with her family and would prepare dinner every Sunday just to get everyone together. \nFriends from her 25 years of service at Jordan School District and her many years of church service universally loved Gayla for her genuine love of life and for others. She also will be remembered for her contagious sense of humor and lightheartedness. She will be missed by all who knew her.\nGayla is survived by: her husband, Dennis Nolan Barker; their children, Alex Cameron (Emily) and Ryan Christopher; her prized grandchildren Mercedes Hope and Jack Cameron; her mother Ruby Edwards Cameron; and mother-in-law Nola Clement Barker; siblings Marion Wilkinson, Carolyn (Mike) Montague, and Eddie (Nancy) Cameron. She was preceded in death by her doting father Jack Cameron; father-in-law, Don Barker; brother-in-law Clark Wilkinson; and niece Mindy Montague. \nThe Barker family would like to thank the countless thoughts, prayers and deeds that have been so freely given to them over the last several months.\nViewings: Jenkins-Soffe funeral home, 1007 W, South Jordan Parkway (10600 S.) in South Jordan on Fri, Nov. 14th from 6-8:00 pm and at the LDS South Jordan River Stake Center, 11400 S. 1570 W. on Sat., Nov. 15th from 9:45-10:45am.
