Gwen’s cheery attitude and her caring about every person that crossed her path was a gift many of had the delight of receiving. My condolences to all her family. She was a special person and a treasure to role model for our lives.
We send our condolences to Gwen’s families. I worked with Gwen at Valley View Centre. She had an infectious laugh, and a great sense of humor.
Rest in peace Gwen.
Our sincere sympathies to all the family in the passing of my very dear Auntie Gwen (or Gwenie as my Mom would call her). I have so many positive memories of our summer visits to Moose Jaw when we lived in southern Saskatchewan…sometimes with family and sometimes on my own via Greyhound. Too many to mention but the picnics in the Wild Animal Park, the visits and tours at Valley View Center, eating at Kresge’s lunch counter and shopping, especially buying “high heel” shoes at the Army and Navy for 50 cents (fun as a very young girl, and they fit perfect). I also remember her beautiful nails, painting them as she enjoyed her coffee….and always the lipstick kiss she left on my cheek. Coming to stay with her as a young girl was always the highlight of my summer…always so warm and welcoming with open arms…always fun! Thanks for being such a loving Auntie to me… Marjorie

My sincere sympathy to Betty and family on the passing of their mother Gwen.I worked at V.V.C. for many years-in a different department but when I did see and stopped to talk she was always so cheery.My thoughts are with you.

I worked with Gwen, many years ago at Valleyview, when I was a summer relief worker earning my way through university.
She was always good to me.
