Survived by her loving husband, Joseph, of 61 years; daughters Laura-Mae and Sandra and twin son Glen; caring nieces and nephews that were part of her world; Laura-Mae’s family in Australia that she did not have the pleasure of meeting but loved from afar; as well as the many who were like family and called her Grandma or Auntie.
In Gwen’s immediate family, she was the last of the Meddins line. She was predeceased by her mother, father, three brothers and two sisters, as well as her son Neil and son-in-law Alex (Laura-Mae).
She led a long and full life. Her last seven years were in the care of the wonderful staff at Vista, who were tremendous.
After moving from Medicine Hat to Pincher Creek in the early ’70s, she made this her home for over 50 years where she raised her family.
Gwen was active in the church as a Sunday school teacher, but was best known for her baking and jam-making skills as well as her vegetable gardens. “A grand homemaker.”
Love you dearly, Mom. You will be so very much missed by all.
