I am sorry for your loss of a very special and kind lady. Gwenie was my great Aunt. I remember Gwenie with fond memories at all of my families backyard BBQs, graduation parties and weddings. She was always smiling and laughing. My God bless her and may we all carry her light of happiness in our hearts.

I am deeply sorry for your loss. Aunt Gwennie was a special woman who took delight in interacting with children. I remember the days at Raccoon State Park, she tried (in vain) to teach me to swim and was always the happiest person in the room. I imagine she is once again playing cards with Aunt Margaret, Dottie and my mom and brother. She will remain in my heart and all who knew her. Billy, Terry and Kim please know I am thinking of you all.
Planning ahead is prudent. Call us now.

Terry, Kim, Billy......your Mother made so many wonderful memories for us all. Her generation knew how to have a good time.....from vacations to weekly picnics at Raccoon State Thanksgiving dinners with the whole family, playing every kind of cards. Your Mother (they used to call her Gwenie May, led the pack in fashion....she wore the very high healed/platform shoes in the 40s - 50s that they are wearing on the 'red carpet' today. She not only dressed to the max herself, but I loved it when she would dress Bob & I up and take us to the "big city" Pittsburgh. There are many, many wonderful stories, and I never will forget her laugh and happy attitude. I know you, your children, and their children will truly miss her. We all will carry on her memory by remembering the special times with her.....and also will remember special times with your Dad (He let me drive his Corvette when I was 16 years old was one of those special times). My prayers are with all of you.

Aunt Gweny was always such a great person to be around. While we were growing up she was fun and caring of all of us (nieces and nephews). We spent summer picnics with all the fam at Raccoon Park, numerous Thanksgivings, and several Boustead family Canadian vacations, stories abound!! many years ago. Since we've all grown up and established families and grands of our own, we've sadly lost touch, and I missed that. We share our warmest sympathy to all of her family. She was a twinkling star in my family memories. Love, Mary Ann

Aunt gwenie was always the "fun" aunt. She was great at entertaining kids & she tried her best to teach us to swim. So sorry for your loss. Hope she is playing cards with my mom & dot.

My deepest sympathy on the loss of your sweet, sweet Mother. They say there are no coincidences in life. On Wednesday, I was thinking about your Mom and I went into my Mom's address book to look up her birthday because my Mom had always sent her a birthday card and I wanted to do the same. Your Mom was such a nice person and I am sorry for your loss.
