Gwenetha Dawn Shepherd, beloved mother, grandmother, sister and aunt passed away peacefully on July 24, 2020. She will be greatly missed by her son Tyler and his wife Lisa and their two sons Mason and Thatcher, Tylers father Gary, her sister Arlene (Randy) and brothers Ken and Darcy as well as numerous nieces and nephews, great nieces and great nephews and cousins.
Gwen had a larger than life personality and touched the lives of every single person she met. She could meet a stranger and leave them as friends. Gwen had a huge heart and was always there to try and help in any way she could.
Gwen was a devoted mother to Tyler. Gwen could often be found at one of Tylerâ€™s hockey games ringing her cow bell and cheering him on as loud as she could but the greatest joy in her life was when she became a grandmother to Mason and then again to Thatcher. Her two grandsons truly were the light of her life.
Gwen is predeceased by her mother Alice and her father Ted as well as her sister Valerie. Due to Covid-19 restrictions a small family only celebration of life will be held in her honour. In lieu of flowers, the family graciously requests that donations be made in her to name to STARS Air Ambulance.
