Gae Mary Rankin, 65, passed away peacefully on July 18, 2013 surrounded by her husband and children. Gae was born on July 24, 1947 to Harvey and Gladys Price in Salt Lake City. She graduated from Bountiful High School in 1965. She married Ken Rankin on September 24, 1976 and together they raised a wonderful family. Gae was a beautician for 48 years (retired July 2012). She had a passion for spending quality time with her grandchildren by whom she was affectionately known as “Grandma Treat” as she loved to surprise them with sugary snacks.
Gae was loved and admired by all that knew her, but especially by her children. Gae was blessed with an ability to love, nurture, and teach. Her example of quiet service spoke loudly of her charitable life. She was constantly aware of those around her who needed a little lift and would do all she could to make other’s lives a little brighter.
Gae is preceded in passing by her father and mother Harvey and Gladys Price. She is survived by her loving husband Ken Rankin; children Kim (Clint), Shane (Amber), Tim (Jodi), and Justin; 12 grandchildren; and siblings Harvey, Clyde, Jan, Walt, Yvonne, and Pam.
