Chayle had a love of the arts and spent the most enjoyable of her working years with an incredible team at the Lunchbox Theatre in Calgary where she made lifelong friends and had the opportunity to thrive in a work environment she thoroughly enjoyed. Chayle and Dave “retired” to Penticton where she continued to work in the non-profit sector, part-time for the Penticton Friendship Centre and as a volunteer with Critter Aid. Chayle was a certified BBQ judge and enjoyed the camaraderie of her friends in the BBQ community. She was an avid quilter, a voracious reader and a backyard gardener. Chayle loved her 2 rescue dogs, Peanut & Tucker and enjoyed spending time visiting her kids in Calgary and Langley. Chayle loved to travel with Dave and enjoyed the time they spent together at home or with friends and extended family.
