Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
I'm so sorry to hear of Aunt Gwen's passing. I just found out a moment ago. She was always so nice to me growing up. Unbelievably we just returned from Minnesota yesterday where we were celebrating the lives of my Uncle and cousin who died the same day as Aunt Gwen (both were 89). Now they're all together in glory. My love and prayers go out to Uncle Jack and the rest of the family. - Posted by: Mark Osterhus (Nephew) on: Oct 18, 2022
I am sorry to hear of Aunt Gwen’s passing. I will be keeping uncle Jack and the rest of the family in my prayers. She is having a blessed reunion with my grandma and her other sisters today. She was an amazing lady and always a bright spot when I was growing up and we would visit. - Posted by: Jennifer Caskey (great Niece) on: Sep 30, 2022
So sorry to hear of Gwen's passing. As a young girl, I would sit with the hen's club ladies & Gwen would talk to me and help me to knit. Always so positive and full of energy. A life well lived! My deepest sympathy to all the family. - Posted by: Tammy Kaleta (Mearon) (Friend of family) on: Sep 30, 2022
