Gwendolyn Elizabeth Maeland

Gwendolyn Elizabeth Maeland, age 69 – retired teacher – passed away peacefully on Sunday, Oct 3, 2010.  She is survived by her son Brent and daughter-in-law Jacqui, son Chris and daughter-in-law Jane, and daughter Kari and son-in-law Bruce; cherished grandmother of Mackenzie, Ceilidh, Jordan, Cameron and Andre; dear sister of Judy, and sister-in-law of Anne and Bodil. Gwendolyn was predeceased by her husband Jan, her parents Robert and Elsie, and infant brother Robert.  Gwen was an avid member of PEO and leaves behind many great sisters.  During her last few months she stayed quite busy ensuring that all of her projects were completed on time.  According to Hospice House, they believe she set a new record for the amount of friends that came to visit during her stay.  Special thanks goes to the “family” at Hospice House that helped her with her transition. A celebration of her life will take place at the Deer Park Restaurant, 9192 Tronson, on 23 Oct. from 1-4 pm.  In memoriam donations to the North Okanagan Hospice Society (www.nohs.ca) would be greatly appreciated.
