My deepest sympathies go out to the entire family, Aunt Gwen will be missed very much by many. I have so many wonderful memories of Aunt Gwen and Uncle Orland for as far back as I can remember, so many good times at 128 Westhill Rd. as a young child to living on their couch for months when I first moved to Elliott Lake. Their home was not very big in size but it was always filled to overflowing with love, laughter and practical jokes. There was always room at their table for one more to share whatever they had. I shared many different meals with them, from Uncle Orlands' "gun soup" to fish cheeks to cow tongue (yuck LOL) Rest in peace Auntie. Until we meet again!

Such a strong lady, so courageous and gentle. Always a smile hovering on her lips and with a twinkle in her eye she enjoyed life and those around her. Love of family was always evident in her words and actions. Truly a sad day to lose someone so special but the memories are ours to keep forever and she will live on each of us that she touched in her lifetime. RIP Aunt Gwen.
