Gwene was a wonderful friend for many yrs, I met her through Lee Femson. She was such a loving, friendly lady, we had many cups of tea and conversation. I hadn't seen her in many yrs because of the distance. She's with Bob now!!

Dear Barb
Bill and I were very saddened at the recent passing of Gwen. She was always so very warm and cheerful towards us. I well remember Gwen helping me change the banners and polishing the brass at St. Andrew’s. It was always a fun visit. Gwen, Bill and I served on the Outreach Committee for more than seven years in the 1980’s. She was such a loyal member of the Church. Gwen was missed when she moved to Ancaster several years ago. We have been thinking of you the past several days.

Many condolences to daughter Barb and family.

I first met Gwen when I offered to deliver poinsettias to her from our church, St. Andrew's United Markham, where we were both members.
I remember how loving she was to me, a complete stranger when we first met. We just clicked.
I'll remember her graciousness, cheerfulness and caring ways.
Gwen, your memory lives on as you meet your Saviour in heaven.

I love you and will miss our chats.
