Gale Roach Obituary

Gale A. (Carner) Roach, 70, of Mt. Vernon, passed away on Tuesday, September 12, 2023, at her home with her family by her side. Gale was born in New Harmony on April 20, 1953, the daughter of Cecil Barritt and Helen Carner.

Gale retired from the Mt. Vernon School District after working many years as a custodian. Gale enjoyed and was passionate about collecting Native American items. She also liked the mountains and the beaches. Gale had a green thumb and always had a porch full of beautiful flowers and other plants around her house. She was a member of the Church of Christ in Mt. Vernon. However, spending time with her husband, Mike, of 53 years, her children, grandchildren, and her other family was her greatest joy.
