Monique (mfh2161) | 103 comments Just a sad FYI: I found out today that Gisele Walko has died. She had been battling cancer off and on for a while.
She was such a sweet, funny woman...and one of the first to befriend me here.
I am going to miss her so much.

Oh, my God! I kept wondering what happened to her. She was one of the first to befriend me too. She was such a positive and upbeat person. She was a real friend. My heart goes out to her husband and her kids. She and I had things in common we shared through many conversations we had with each other here on Goodreads. She was such a funny and inspiring person. I am so sorry to hear that.

Michaela | 12 comments Oh, that makes my heart so sad. She was so sweet and friendly, always recommending books and discussing her books with me.

Meka♥books (book143er) | 403 comments My heart hurts to hear this news. Gisele had such a sweet spirit and fun disposition. Fly even higher friend. I will miss you.


message 9: by Erica (new)

Erica (makewishdreambig) | 50 comments I loved reading her books and comments. Such a wonderful person that will be missed.


DeeTimes' Reading Nook (cricket011) | 3226 comments This news was so sad to hear. I just assumed that she was busy working on another book.

She always communicated with her book friends and fans and gladly shared her thoughts about what she would be reading next and I thought that was quite rare in an author. We both loved reading Theodora Taylor's books so we would email each other back and forth on the strong women characters. Dang I miss her so much!!!!

Well if any person was to get wings, I know sweet Gisele earned hers. She will be missed!

RIP Gisele Walko!

Rosie | 839 comments As many of you, I got the opportunity to know Gisele on GR through our love of books and we struck up a friendship and I'm better for it.

When I think of Gisele, I think ... Wife. Mother. Author. Reader. Librarian. Friend. Sweeth♥art. Angel.

My condolences to her family. May she rest in peace.

Patricia | 87 comments Oh my gosh! I'm so sorry to hear that. She was also my Goodread friend as well. She was a sweet and caring person... She was
actually the very first person to friend me here. I also was wondering what happened to her. She was always active. I just thought life got in the way. As it sometimes does. Oh my goodness. My heart, prayers, and condolences goes out to her family. She will be missed.

message 21: by Teinevai (new)

Teinevai | 15 comments So saddened to learn of this. We first conversed through messages on here, she liked a review I wrote on one of her books. Months later she was kind enough to send me a copy of her latest book. Condolences to her family & friends - R.I.P Gisele.


♡Meme♡Reads love♡ | 116 comments This is really sad to hear my heart goes out to her family and to all of us that we're lucky enough to have known her, she will be missed but she will be here in our love for reading. May the stories she has left us with continue to thrive. Farewell friend.

The one year anniversary of Gisele’s passing is coming on March 25th. In honor of her memory, I thought it would be good to get together and post stories about her on our blogs and share them also on social media. I am going to do a small tribute to her on mine, and would love for you all to do the same.

If you would like to join in the tribute, please comment back. When you post your tribute, please use #remembergisele If you post on social media please tag me as well. My handles on Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest are @rebirthoflisa on Facebook my user name is Lisa W. Tetting.
