Obituary for Susan "Gayle" Gabriel (Mitchell)

Susan Gayle (Mitchell Tennent) Gabriel of Concord, NC, passed away on September 20, 2018, at the age of 61.

Gayle was born in Durham, NC to Joyce Herndon Mitchell and the late William H. Mitchell, and attended Hope Valley Elementary School, Githens Junior High School, and Jordan High School, graduating in 1975. She received her bachelor’s degree in Education from Appalachian State University and a master’s degree from UNC-Charlotte. In her youth, Gayle and her family were active members of Grace Baptist Church and First Baptist Church in Durham.

Like her mother and her brother, Joseph, Gayle had a passion for teaching. She taught gifted children in elementary education for more than 20 years in the Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools and the Rowan Salisbury School System, and was known for her warm smile, her kind and compassionate spirit, and her devotion to her students.

Gayle’s faith was always at the center of her life, and she and her husband, Bryan, were active members of Christ Providence Lutheran Church in Charlotte, and more recently, Calvary Lutheran Church in Concord, where she enjoyed singing in the Dove Worship choir.

Gayle is remembered by her husband, Bryan Gabriel; her mother, Joyce Mitchell of Durham; her daughters, Meredith Tennent and Brittain Tennent of Charlotte; her granddaughter, Gisele Tennent of Salisbury; her brothers, William (“Billy”) Mitchell (and his wife, Alexis) of England and Joseph Mitchell (and his wife, Joelle) of San Carlos, CA; as well as many aunts and uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews. She is also remembered by the Tennent family. She leaves behind many cherished friends that shared her love of skiing, hiking, reading, and socializing with friends, and hundreds of students who were inspired by her teaching.

A Celebration of Gayle’s life will be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, October 6, 2018, at Calvary Lutheran Church, 950 Bradley St NE, Concord, NC 28025. An informal visitation will follow the service.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to American Cancer Society, ; Sacred Heart Catholic School in Salisbury, NC ; or Calvary Lutheran Church, Concord, NC .
