Gwendolyn ‘Gwen’ W. Woodcock, 78, passed away peacefully on Friday, January 15, 2021.

Gwen was born June 5, 1942 in Bryson City, NC and attended Swain High School. She retired from Rexham Corporation after twenty-five years of faithful service. Gwen split her time between Charlotte and Gulfport, Mississippi with her husband Donald ‘Roy’ Woodcock. Roy preceded Gwen in death on August 10, 2014.

Gwen is remembered as being a sweet, soft-spoken and mild-mannered lady. She never met a stranger and had a special love for babies and children. She loved her family dearly and they loved her just as much. She is also remembered for her love of reading and was an avid speed reader. She loved to watch the Hallmark Movie Channel. Family poker nights were her favorite, where her nickname was ‘Trudy’. There is so much more that could be written. But if you want the real story of Gwen aka “Little Gwen”, “Gwenny”, “Mee-Maw”, “Nay-Nay”, “Maw-Maw” “Grandma” and Momma, ask any of her family members and you will hear some great tales of this very special woman.

Survivors include her three children, Rodney Burnette and his wife, Carol; DeVoynne Cisneros and her husband, Salomon; and Connie Decker and her husband, Robert. Her grandchildren include – Christopher, Michelle, Michele, Tabitha, Ricky, Robbie, Jessica, Evan, Loftin, Rachel, Savannah and a host of other grandchildren and great-grandchildren; as well as special family members, Louise Goss and Cody Ruff.

Mrs. Woodcock’s family will receive friends beginning at 6:00 p.m. Monday, January 18 at McEwen – Pineville Chapel, 10500 Park Road, Charlotte followed by a Celebration of Life at 7:00 p.m. in the funeral home chapel.

I have so many great memories with this sweet lady. She always welcomed me with open arms every time I saw her and it was so easy to love her.

I will miss our family poker games with Ms Gwen (aka Trudy)
and just being with her at family functions. She was very special to me and will miss her very much.

Prayers to all her family during this time.
Our loss is Heavens gain for sure.

Although we were unable to visit with Gwen much over the last several years, we always enjoyed our time together. These times included Louise and we were able to remember together family events of long ago. We are thinking of, praying for, and sending our love to you all. Please know that we are with you in our thoughts although not in person. With love, Russell, Rona, and family
