Gayle Marie (Erb) Fishel
Gayle Marie (Erb) Fishel, age 62, of Enola, passed away on Tuesday, September 29, 2020. Gayle was born on Thursday, December 26, 1957, in Mechanicsburg to the late Otis Eugene Erb and Edna Marie (Mundis) Erb. In addition to her parents, Gayle is preceded in death by her brother, Dwight Erb.
Gayle’s survivors include her two daughters: Jamie Marie Kolaric and husband Jason of Mechanicsburg, Danielle Lee Fishel of Harrisburg; her three grandchildren: Cody Kolaric, Logan Kolaric, Evelynn Biss; and her two brothers: Keith Erb and wife Denise of Enola, and Eugene “Gene” Erb of Enola.
Gayle graduated from East Pennsboro High School as part of the class of 1975. She loved playing games online, especially Words with Friends. Gayle also enjoyed listening to country music and her favorite artist, George Strait. If Gayle was not doing either of those things, she was likely talking on the phone. Gayle’s grandchildren were the light of her life, and they fondly remember her giving them money every Christmas wrapped up in a napkin. Gayle will be dearly missed.
