Gayle, I am so sorry to hear about your loss. What a delightful lady she must have been - beautiful inside and out. She has battled this terrible disease for awhile I know, and you were by her side through it all. Our deepest condolences are with you and your family. Know that she was so very proud of you and loved you very much - and that you were by her when she needed you most.

Gayle Joseph Mongan passed away peacefully at home on February 28th. She died of primary peritoneal cancer at the age of 73 after more than three years of treatment at M D Anderson in Houston. Gay was born in Alice, Texas to Dr. Philip and Gayle Joseph on August 30, 1940 where she was raised along with her three brothers. She met her husband Tom while at Stephen’s College in Columbia, Missouri. They were married following graduation in 1960.
Gay’s life was a mosaic of interests, but her focus was always on her children, husband and close friends. Houston was home for many years, but her heart was never far from South Texas, especially Rockport, which had been a part of her life from early childhood until the time of her death.
A measure of every person’s existence is their impact on those around them. Gay’s friends, including her colleagues at The Charity Guild of Catholic Women where she volunteered for many years, her Alice girlfriends who still gather after 60 years and countless others from around the country are testimony to her rich, humorous and productive life.
Gay is survived by her husband Tom, her son Philip Mongan, his wife Gloria and their children Matt and Lindsey, her daughter Gayle Mongan Kinnie and her husband Kurt, her daughter Anne-Marie White, husband Mike and their children Max and Coco, her brothers Lamar Joseph, Philip Joseph and his wife Barbara. The family appreciates the care of Drs. Michael Bevers and Ralph Zinner and their excellent teams at M D Anderson hospital.
Friends are invited to a memorial mass at St. Anne Catholic Church in Houston, Monday at 10 AM followed by a reception in the parish hall. Remembrances in Gay’s name can be to ovarian cancer research at M. D. Anderson hospital or the charity of your choice.
