    Gwen was part of our Bible study at Chartwell Chatsworth for approximately 4 years. She provided welcome input and added much joy to our gatherings each week. Gwen was very kind to us, giving us cards on major holidays and caring about each one she met along the way. We are thankful to have known her and feel your loss keenly. She was a wonderful woman and will remain forever in our hearts.

  • Maryellen (Williamson) Ford says:

    Judy and Sue – I saw the obituary in The Star this morning, and it brought back many childhood memories growing up close to your family on Wincott Drive. Your mom was a very special lady!! I have made a donation to The Red Cross in her memory; my condolences to you both, and to your families.
