Gayle Myers Sock


Sock, Gayle Myers, 71, beloved wife, mother, grandmother and sister, passed away peacefully on October 11, 2019.  Gayle was born on May 26, 1948 in Providence, RI to Reuben and Harriett Myers.  She earned her undergraduate degree from University of Miami before getting a master’s degree in Education from Suffolk University, after which she taught elementary school.  On May 27, 1973 she married Phil Sock.  They raised their two children, Josh and Aliza, in East Greenwich.  Her love of the beach brought them to live full time in Narragansett.  She enjoyed art and traveling, along with long walks in the fresh ocean air. Her focus was always on providing support and comfort to her family.  She was known as GG to her four grandchildren, whom she lived for.  We will miss the warmth and love she brought everywhere she went.  She would say hugs and kisses to everyone, XOXO.
