My sweet friend Gwen….where do I begin sharing memories that began when I was an adolescent. So many fun times, so many special events, laughter, dinners, your special German pancakes and so much more. Your were always there for me and the rest of my family in good times as well as the hard times. You repeatedly provided emotional and practical assistance when I needed you. Oh Gwen, your laughter, sense of humour, love and no nonsense advice will always be missed. You will never be forgotten and always in my heart. You are now at peace and can always watch over us. Love you. My prayers and condolences goes out to you Shirley and the rest of the family. ❤️ - Posted by: Debra De Graeve (Friend) on: Mar 14, 2023
It seems so long ago that I met Gwen when she was at Swan Lake Credit Union, and I was at Tiger Hills Credit Union in Treherne. I remember her fondly, as a fun-loving, honest and a person with a good heart who fought hard for the people she served. Rest in peace, Gwen. - Posted by: Herman de Vries (Friend) on: Mar 13, 2023

I will forever cherish a friendship that spanned over 40 years filled with laughter, jokes, stories, high jinks, tears, great meals and special memories. You were always a friend in both the good times and bad times; always willing to lend a helping hand. Although you will be sadly missed, you will forever remain in my heart. Your smile is gone, your voice is silenced, your pain has ended. Rest in peace, my dear friend. - Posted by: Doug De Graeve (friend) on: Mar 11, 2023
