Gale (Jones) Nigbor passed away at Agrace HospiceCare in Fitchburg, WI on March 19, 2018 following her lengthy and courageous battle with malignant melanoma. She was 58.
Gale was born on January 29, 1960 in Oshkosh, WI to her parents, Dianne and Melvin Jones. Throughout her life, Gale enjoyed baking, gardening and crafting. Most recently, her favorite pastime was spending time with her grandchildren.

In the face of a variety of health issues throughout her lifetime, Gale never gave up and will always be remembered for her strength, determination, and humor.
Gale is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Kirsten and Scott Dieckhoff; her grandson Mason Dieckhoff, her granddaughter Rylee Dieckhoff; her sister Linda (Joseph Jr.) Pohlod, her brothers Craig Jones, and Steve (Sherry) Jones; and her nephews William and Brian Jones. She is preceded in death by her father, Melvin and her mother, Dianne.
