Sharron Gale Budzinsky Deere passed away peacefully on Friday, November 1st at 76 years of age. Sharron Gale and her twin brother Johnny Dale were born on Friday, April 23, 1943 in McAlester, Oklahoma. Gale is the daughter of the late John Budzinsky and Eva June Ward Budzinsky. She is the sister of Patsy LaRue Budzinsky Myers (living) and the late Johnny Dale Budzinsky. Gale graduated from McAlester High School in 1961 and attended the University of Oklahoma. Gale was a member of the Pi Beta Phi sorority. Gale was married for 57 years to Monte Max Deere, Sr. after they met at OU and together they have four sons, Monte, Jr., Michael, Jason and Josh. Gale and Monte have four daughters-in-law (Bobbi, Kelly, Sonja and Brittany). They have fourteen grandchildren; Jackson, Cameron, Annie, Justin, Jake, Brooke, Kennedy, Griff, Josie, Maddy, J Davis, Josh, Wyatt and Jack; and one great-granddaughter Madeline.
Monte and Gale raised their family in Norman, Oklahoma. They retired on a small farm in Columbia, Tennessee for a few years before moving to Alpine, Utah in 2012. Gale (Meemee) had a way of making everyone she met feel like they were the most important person in the world and she will be missed by all who knew her until we are with her again. Services will be held on Thurs, November 7th at 11AM at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, 1125 East Alpine Blvd, Alpine Utah 84004 (Google map works, Apple map misdirects).

Gale and Monte were the best neighbors anyone could ask for. Gale would treat our three kids like her own, truly a wonderful person who will be missed by all. Our condolences to Monty and the family

Michael and I are so sorry to hear of Gale's passing. Some of our favorite memories are the times we shared when you and Gale joined our Squadron family at Vance AFB. The OU-OSU game we attended together. Then we lost contact as the AF sent us in opposite directions. We wish
you and your beautiful family the love and consolation of the Lord as you face, this loss.

I will forever be grateful for your generous help many years ago. You were an amazing example on being a Christian and friend! I had no idea we shared the same birthday as my life took a Utah path and I had moved away! God’s Blessings on your family🙏
