Eula May was born to missionary parents in Ranchi, India on September 15, 1930. She graduated from Portland Union Academy and attended Southwestern Junior College in Keene, Texas before transferring to Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska, where she graduated with a degree in Elementary Education. She met her husband, Gale Loicen Gabbert while working in the school cafeteria. The pair taught school in Glen Burnie, Maryland before Gale went to the Seminary and took up pastoral work. The two worked in the Chesapeake, Oregon, Ohio, Potomac, Texas and Georgia-Cumberland Seventh-day Adventist Conferences. Eula May taught elementary school, piano and supported Gale with his church ministry. They often opened up their home for church potlucks and took pleasure in visiting people in their homes. They enjoyed retirement living for over 20 years in Collegedale, Tennessee, spending winters in Avon Park, Florida. For the past two years, Eula May lived with her son Dennis and wife Rhea, where she read her large-print Bible, walked over two miles a day and watched sermons of her favorite preacher, David Asscherick.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Gale Gabbert; parents, Ebba and George Lindquist; and brother, Edo Lindquist.
Survivors include her sister, Evonne Baasch; three children, Teresa Dorn (Randy), Dennis Gabbert (Rhea), and Brenda Theus (Ted); grandchildren, Ashley Lucas, Christina Howard, Brandon Dorn, Andrew Theus, Caroline Theus, Jacob Gabbert; and three great-grandchildren.
