Gayle (nee Griffin) Klette
Beloved wife of William (Bud) Klette 1925-2010.
Gayle & Bud were the owners of Art & Antiques store of Carson City NV. Gayle & Bud always made me feel like family during my yearly 3 week stay in their home town. I have many fond memories of those dinners and evenings spent at their home. Gayle passed away in 2008 after a long illness at the age of 82.
Both Bud & Gayle were the closest thing I had to family in Carson City and I shall miss them both deeply.

Rest in Peace Gayle and thank you for those lovely dinners and your kindness.

Gayle Griffin, and Bud were married June 10, 1948. Gayle died Oct. 21, 2008. She and Bud were together for more than 60 years. They made their home on the family ranch in North Fork, Calif., and raised their children there. During her life Gayle & Bud were ranchers and many other things along the way.
Together Bud and Gayle built Old Town in North Fork, and then later opened the first bed and breakfast in Carson City after restoring and furnishing the historic Elliot-Chartz house in 1983. However, they found their true calling in the antique business in 1965 and spent the next 45 years actively buying, selling, appraising and collecting antiques.

Gayle is survived by her daughter Susan Chard of North Fork; son Scott Klette and his wife Mary Ellen of Carson City; four grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; and canine companion Kiddo. She is also survived by her youngest.
