She later attended Fort Cobb Vo-tech in Fort Cobb, Oklahoma, where she received her LPN (LVN in Texas) certification.

Gayla was the epitome of the saying "I wasn't born in Texas but I got here as fast as I could." She truly loved Texas, especially Springtown, and always swore she would never leave. Gayla worked many jobs in her life. However, her true calling was taking care of children, especially those who truly needed her care. Gayla was able to combine her love of children, her passion for helping those who needed help, and her extraordinary nursing skills to build a successful career while helping the many children who needed her help with whom she came in contact. She will be loved and greatly missed by all of those mentioned above and countless others. God bless and accept your eternal servant Gayla.
