After the death of her mother due to complications of child birth, she was lovingly cared for and raised by her mother's sister Annie and Benjamin Turner. She was always grateful for the love she received as a member of their family. She was sealed for time and eternity to the love of her life, Jack Keith Woolsey on November 22, 1944 in the Salt Lake Temple.She showed Christ-like love to her family and friends, and was grateful for life itself. Gepkie's beautiful smile was "a ray of sunshine". Among the many pleasures of life that brought her joy and happiness was the time she spent traveling with her devoted husband, Keith, to many beautiful and exciting places throughout the world. Just to be with her family brought her the greatest joy.
