Gaynelle "Gay" Dellinger

Gaynelle (Williams) Dellinger was born on January 23, 1943 in Pryor, OK to Deamer Max and Verna (Bynum) Williams, and passed away on September 16, 2018 in Springdale.

She now rests in hope, as we all do who trust in the promise given by the Lord for an eternity with Him. Gay was a member of Elmdale Baptist Church in Springdale. She was a homemaker and worked in sales for most of her adult life. Gay enjoyed volunteering at the old Springdale Memorial Hospital and was a former State Board Director of the American Cancer Society.

She was a loving mother to her four children Jon, Eric and Lynnelle Dellinger and Pam (Dellinger) Price, proud grandmother to Derek and Josh Dellinger (Jon), Ashlyn Dellinger (Eric), and Jeremy and Sean Price (Pam). She also was blessed with 5 great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her mother, father, two brothers and a sister. She is survived by brother, Ron Williams, and sister, LaJuana Marcello.

Visitation will be held on Wednesday, September 19, 2018 from 6-7:30 pm at the Backstrom-Pyeatte Funeral Home and a Graveside ceremony will be held Thursday, September 20, 2018 at 10 am at the Bluff Cemetery, both in Springdale. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Circle of Life Hospice 901 Jones Road Springdale, AR 72762. To sign the online guest book please visit www.backstrom-pyeatte.com.

Pam, Jon, Eric - I am sorry to learn of your mother's passing. She was always so nice to me and my family. I shall be praying for your peace for the next several days. I just learned of her passing today and so I missed her service.
May God grant you the peace and the understanding she is with her Lord and Savior.

Dear Ron and Barb,
We are so sorry about the loss of your sister, Gay. May God give you comfort to know that she rests in the arms of her God and that she is with those who have gone before her. We are always here for you and would do anything for you. Love, Larry and Bonnie

Your mother reached out to me when I enrolled at Jay High School in the 9th grade. She and I spent a lot of time together after school hours. She enjoyed giving her friends gifts. After school trips, we would walk from the school house to her family home in our stocking feet laughing and moaning; our high-heel shoes were killing our feet. She often made me laugh with her quick wit. During home economics class, the fire truck passed the school. Gaynelle said with humor, "Ronald must be burning the trash again." I look forward to spending eternity in heaven with her. . . What a treat that will be!
