Gabbe was blessed with awesome artistic and musical talent, able to play 5 instruments and was adept in many forms of painting, drawing, and tattoo arts. At a younger age she competed in cow cutting on her favorite horse Dual in many competitions, including the Nationals with her Grandmother Gina Macdonald. She had a fondness for the quirky & vintage; put together the most amazing outfits and could create clothing and room decor that were simply wonderful to behold. She always had her own style . She also loved photography and quickly picked up the skills for that craft. Whenever possible, Gabbe enjoyed the outdoors in the beautiful Sun Valley area, and especially enjoyed camping there with friends.
She had a beautiful and generous spirit.
There were few people she came in contact with who did not recognize the wonderful person she was and the incredible talents she had, unfortunately she was not able to see that in herself. We all loved you so much, Gabbe.
