She then went on to work at Lowe’s for 17 years.

She loved spending time outside, going fishing with her brother Paul, going to the beach, and exploring new places with her dog Boomer. She also enjoyed crocheting, counted cross stitching, gardening, painting and spending time with family and friends.

Mary Jo is preceded in death by her father Paul E. Gale Sr. and her mother Mildred Lucille Holmes Gale DiGuiseppi, and her brother Paul e. Gale Jr.

Mary Jo is survived by her daughter, Gale Yearsley (Bruce) of Middletown, Delaware.
Her grand children Heather Baker of Dover, Delaware and Ryan Yearsley of Wilmington, Delaware. Her great granddaughter Kaylei Yearsley of Dover, Delaware. Her sister Mildred Paulette Crane (Steve) of Mathias, West Virginia and her brother Larry Holmes Gale (Debbie) of Lake Wales, Florida. She is also survived by a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday November 23rd from 1:00-4:00 at the Chesapeake Inn, in Chesapeake City, Maryland.
