Gayle Anderson Swanstrom (9/21/1944-1/14/2020) was born and raised in Utah where she met her husband of 55 years, Harry Wallace Swanstrom. From there, they began their lifelong adventure raising their children and studying in Utah, Arizona, Wyoming, California, and Dallas. She was the first in her family to graduate from college with an MIS degree from UTDallas in 1977. After their children were grown, their careers in the computer industry took them to England, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Portugal, South Africa, Australia, and other locales. Gayle and Wally loved travelling and seeing the world, but more than anything else, they loved their family. Gayle and Wally retired to Natchitoches, LA in 2004 to be closer to their family.
