PRICE/SALT LAKE CITY - Our hero, father, grandfather, brother and dear friend, Gabriel Ishley, age 90, passed away Oct. 2, 2008 in Salt Lake City.

Our dad was the sixth of 10 children born to Hungarian immigrants John and Mary Ishley in Plains, Pa., on May 25, 1918.

Our dad was in the mining industry all of his life with MSA and retired from National Mine Service in Price.

In 1961, the family moved from Pennsylvania to Price.  What a great community. Everyone opened their arms and hearts, welcoming us in their loving and caring ways.

Preceded in death by a daughter, Gail Beth; stepson, Michael Keith (Elaine) Nielson.

Funeral service Wednesday, Oct. 8, noon, Mitchell Funeral Home, 233 East Main Street in Price. The family will be at Mitchell's Tuesday evening from 6 to 8 p.m. and Wednesday one hour prior to service.  Interment, Price City Cemetery.

The family wishes to express their deep appreciation to IMC critical care team at Highland Care and, most especially, to the entire staff of the Wentworth at Cottonwood Heights for their love and care of our father.
