Sorry to learn of Gwenda’s passing. I became friends through work and always enjoyed her opinions and chats. I remember how excited she was as she rushed to prepare for the arrival of Marek. Sorry for your loss.

I was shocked to see Gwenda’s death in the paper.
Gwenda and I worked together for several years and shared many a road trip…… lots of adventures/surprises/fun times.
Maerk’s arrival was a highlight for all of us in the office. My sincere condolences to Marek and family.

So sorry to hear of your mother’s passing, Marek. I have such happy memories of all of you on Freshwater Road. Keep well.

Rhonda and I are saddened to hear of Gwenda’s passing. I first met Gwenda when when we worked together at the school board office in CBS. She was a wonderful colleague and, happily, we became great friends during that time. Our condolences to Marek and other family and close friends.

Marek, we are so sorry to learn of the passing of your mother. Losing a parent is a hard loss, no matter what age. Jim and I have fond memories of your time on Freshwater Road.. Best wishes from both of us.

Please accept our sincere sympathies on
Gwenda’s passing. Claudia and I were deeply saddened when we received the news. This is. a difficult time for your family and close friends. The fond memories of a loved on can assist at these times. Gwenda and I go back over the years within the circles of public education. I first met her when she worked with the Conception Bay South School District. ; and later we worked as colleagues when the new school districts were formed. She was a dedicated and respected professional in her field. Later years often found us enjoying a hand of duplicate bridge; it was always a pleasure to meet her at the club and exchange greetings . May her soul Rest In Peace. Brian and Claudia Shortall

Condolences to Gwenda’s family and friends on her passing. She had joined our book club this past year and contributed well to our lively discussions.She was a lovely lady. It was a pleasure to have known her if only for a short time.May she rest in peace.

As Principal of The Newfoundland School for the Deaf, I worked very closely with Gwenda in her various roles in the Dept. of Education. She was very good to work with and had a relaxed and humorous side. I am very sorry to hear of her passing. She will be missed.

I am very sorry to hear of Gwenda’s passing. She was our neighbour for a long while. She was a lovely person, quite friendly and such a good neighbour. I will miss seeing her on Freshwater Rd.
Deep condolences to her family and friends.
May she rest in peace.

Family of Gwenda,
So sorry to read of her passing. She was a supportive colleague in the school system, who spoke so very proudly of Marek. Hold loving memories close in the days to come .

Marek, I was so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I knew her as she was my sister’s longtime neighbour and close friend. I will remember Gwenda’s lovely smile and our friendly chats over the years. I hope your many good memories and times spent with your Mom will bring you comfort in the days ahead. Sending kindest regards and much sympathy for your loss.

I’m so sorry to hear about Gwenda’s passing. I’ve been Gwenda’s hairstylist for the last couple of years. I shaved her head for her during the pandemic as she was grappling with cancer treatment, and she’s been seeing me since. Gwenda was such a joy to have in my chair. I didn’t know her for long, but I will surely miss her.

Marek, I worked with Gwenda at the Department of Education in the ‘’80s. She was a good friend and supportive colleague and a very proud mother.
My sincere condolences on her passing.

I’m so sorry to hear that your mom have passed away. Please accept my condolences on behalf of myself & my family.
Take care of yourself.

Marek: I am so sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you and your family.. I shall always think of Gwenda sitting in my garden here, laughing and enjoying the sun.

I extend condolences to Gwenda’s family upon her passing. She was a lovely person, and a competitive, competent duplicate bridge player. It was my pleasure to get to know her at the club.

Distance prevents my attending Monday’s service; however, she will be in my thoughts. May she rest in peace after her difficult illness.

We were very grieved to learn of Gwenda’s passing. We became friends through the bridge community, a friendship that lasted throughout her years and one she shared with so many others there at her bridge Club. Her welcoming smile, warm vibrancy and great sense of humour were always a mainstay, every afternoon and night. We will certainly miss her.
My sincere condolences to her son, and all her family and friends at this sad moment. May she now Rest In Peace.
