Gayla Irene Morris, 56, of Midland, Texas passed into the arms of her Savior on December 3, 2021, at 7:14 a.m.

Gayla was born on July 28, 1965, in Concord, California, to James Doyle and Geneva (Whitehead) Morris. Gayla was the youngest child of six and dearly loved her family. Her singing and laughter filled our hearts with joy.

As a graduate of Bible College, she was a student of God’s Word, having embraced Christ by faith at an early age. She also earned a B.B.A. from the College of the Southwest in 2012.

Gayla was a multifaceted person. She was kind and generous, and loved her ministry with the children at church. She was interested in politics. She was a “handyman” in her home and loved to write music. She wrote a few songs and published a book and wanted to make a hit in Nashville.

She did excellent and meticulous work at West Texas National Bank, rising to the level of Vice President; she enjoyed all her coworkers. She traveled to many parts of the world. We don’t like that she went to heaven before us, but we don’t begrudge her being there.
