Gale Ann Choike; of Oakland and formerly of Lake Orion; passed away August 10, 2018. She was 60-years-old.

Gale will always be remembered for her positive outlook on life, and her love and compassion for family and friends, all of whom meant so much to her. She enjoyed collecting antiques, doing crafts and gardening, and loved being outdoors and visiting Northern Michigan. Her beautiful smile, bright blue eyes, funny giggle, and great sense of humor will be sorely missed.
