Passed away peacefully on July 23, 2022 at Andy's House Hospice, Port Carling, ON with family by her side. Gwen was born in Hamilton, ON in 1941 to Jim and Ruby (nee Page) Dent. Gwen was the cherished wife of Raymond for 59 years; they were married on September 1, 1962. She was the loving mother to sons David (Pat) and Mark (Shelly), of Bracebridge, ON. Proud grandmother to Ashley Leng (Lucas) of Hillsdale, ON and Christian Leng (Madison) and their mother Melissa from Orillia, ON. Sister to Susanne Mackie (Gord), and predeceased by brothers Doug (Lynn) and Will (Mickey). She will be missed and remembered by many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
Gwen was a proud employee having worked at the South Muskoka Memorial Hospital for over 15 years. Macaroni & Cheese was a family tradition of Gwen's. It was her specialty and she loved making it for every family holiday; especially for her grandchildren. She loved watching the Toronto Blue Jays, at the Roger's Centre or in the comfort of her home. Gwen loved flowers of every kind. She was like sunshine. Graceful, festive, open and kind, that was Gwen.
A Celebration of Gwen's life will take place at a later date. Donations to Andy's House Hospice would be greatly appreciated by the family. Online memories and condolences may be made at www.peacefultransition.ca.
