Her favorite thing to do was to take the boat to Anclote Island, collect shells and take pictures of sunsets. She also
loved art, animals and music.

her husband Fred, her daughter Erin, her granddaughter Madison and her siblings, Lorraine, Bobby, Chris and

gathering.
In lieu of flowers the family requests that donations be made to the Golden Retriever Rescue of Mid-Florida as
they always held a special place in her heart.
Gwen was a wonderful wife, an amazing mother, and a cherished grandmother. Our lives have been blessed
because of her and they will never be the same without her.

Footprints – by Robert Longley
Few things are as fleeting
As footprints in the sand
Sometimes we walk alone
And sometimes hand in hand
Both paths tell a story
That waves may wash away
As long as we have the memory
They live with us each day
Come to the beach and remember
Make some footprints of your own
And think of the days now absent
And the memories we have known
The water can be healing –
It always was for me –
Just take time to remember
And I think that you will see
