Willie (Dale) Dale Bullard

July 22, 1931 — December 30, 2023

Wille Dale Bullard, known affectionately as Dale, passed away on December 30, 2023, leaving behind a legacy of love, laughter, and a deep connection with her family and friends. She was born on July 22, 1931, and her journey on this earth was marked by warmth, compassion, and a vibrant spirit.

Dale is survived by her beloved daughter, Teresa Gamsky, and son-in-law, Art. She adored her grandchildren, Jacob Nicholas Gamsky and his wife, Kaley, Joseph Dean Gamsky and his wife, Kayla, and Elissabeth Gayle Gamsky. Dale was overjoyed to welcome a great-grandchild, Sloane Margaret Kettering-Gamsky, into her heart and cherished the joy this new generation brought to her life.

In addition to her immediate family, Dale is remembered by her sister, Shirley Williams of Nevada, Texas, and her brother, Jimmy Wayne Cook of Iowa Park, Texas. She was preceded in death by her husband, Virgil Bullard, and siblings Marnie Cook, Alpha Hammet, Orpha (Cookie) Sidlaskas, LaVerne (Mickie) Samples, Jasper Dwayne Cook, and Dorothy Brothers.

Dale dedicated 27 years of her life to American Airlines, serving as a waitress. Her infectious love for conversation and people made her a beloved figure in her workplace. Upon retirement, she continued to spread joy through companion care for the elderly, a role she humorously referred to as caring for "old people."

Renowned as a prayer warrior intercessor, Dale's faith was a guiding force in her life. She was an avid gardener, tending to her yard with love and care. Dale had a keen eye for a good deal, often finding treasures at garage sales and amassing a collection of knick-knacks. Her love for shiny things extended to her passion for jewelry.

Above all, Dale's heart belonged to her grandchildren, and her love for them knew no bounds. She was actively involved in various prayer groups and always found joy in the company of others. Her memory will forever be cherished by those who were fortunate enough to know her and experience the warmth of her love.

In honoring Dale's life, let us celebrate the remarkable woman she was - a beacon of love, kindness, and faith. May she rest in eternal peace.
