She enjoyed her career as an Interior Designer at Douglas Interiors, Anthony’s and then retired from Mueller’s Interiors. Gwen continued working with her design talents as a freelance interior designer for years afterwards. Gwen was a strong, independent and resourceful woman that rose to and met the challenges of being a single working parent. She was known for her compassionate acts of kindness helping anyone in need, a truly generous, kind hearted person that touched the lives of so many.
She was an active member of St. John’s Anglican Church in Mississauga, and made many friends there over the years but became less involved during her later years due to her decline in physical mobility. Her big heart, wittiness, and eagerness to stay connected to those she loved will be deeply missed and not forgotten.
She had many comforting memories over the years with her two fluffy feline companions Max & Purrcilla.
