WILSON, Gwendolyne "Gwennie"

Gwendolyne Wilson

1929 - 2019

It is with the deepest sadness that we announce the passing of Gwendolyne "Gwen" Kathryn Wilson on Monday, March 11, 2019 at the age of 90 years. Gwen was born on February 7, 1929 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the daughter of William and Daisy Young and the sister of Earl. Gwen worked in Halifax at Irving Oil during the Second World War and later at Camp Hill Hospital. Gwen married Eugene Vaughn Wilson in Halifax in 1956 and moved to Ontario in 1961. Living in south Ottawa, Gwen and Eugene lived a beautiful life raising their two children and were active in faith and community at Riverside United Church. Gwen's life was full of joy, laughter and love. From her silver sequined hat to her glittering gold shoes, Gwen opened the conversation with a smile that left you with an impression you would not soon forget. Gwen joins her husband Eugene who passed in 2003. Gwen is survived by her son Robert Wilson (Karen), daughter Barbara Kingsbury (Tom), four grandchildren: Nicholas, Gregory, Mitchell and Kimberly.
