Surnames: gailey, johnson
Information I have (unsourced) is Linda Johnson married Jack Wendell Gailey on 17 Nov 1968 (no place cited)

Only Jack Wendell Gailey I have located in died in Utah and is buried in Riverview Cemetery. Death Date is 8 May 1976.

Would appreciate obituary - hopefully to connect to Johnson family.

Hi Lynda,
I searched for your Jack on Genealogybank and didn't find an obit for him - there were two obits - one mentioned a Johnson and the other mentioned a Jack Gailey - that was old enough to be Your Jacks father. But none for your Jack. I did find this though:
maybe you can contact the contributor and see if they have anymore info?
You can email at:

Best wishes,

I appreciate your input and had checked ancestry, findagrave, genealogybank, familysearch and the byu library since the event occurred in Utah. Had not thought to contact the individual entering the findagrave info. Am reluctant to put too much time into this as Linda is from Minn and unsure how she might have connected with Utah.

Thanks for your guidance.

Attached is as much as I could find on Jack W. Gailey.
According to his obituary (last attachment) He was married to Linda Johnson (no date) later divorced and then married again to Cheryl Schmid in Elko, Nv. on Feb. 4, 1976.
His obit lists Cheryl as his surviving spouse.
I'm not sure how the following article regarding his divorce from Sue Ann Gailey fits in as there is no mention of her in his obituary.
NOTE: I added both Jack's and his brother Robert's obituaries to their findagrave memorials.
