SMITH, Gwendolyn (Gwen) Helen

It is with incredible sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Gwen Smith, surrounded by her family on May 7, 2020, age 75. She was the loving mother of Lisa (Greg) Bingleman of Port Dover, and Karla (Todd) Doyle of Woodstock. For nearly thirty years, she was the beloved life partner of Mike McRoberts of Woodstock. Gwen was an amazing grandmother to her grandchildren Joshua, Jordan, Lauryn and Carter. She was the dear aunt of Brenda (Taras) Petrynec, great-aunt of Zachar and Tatiana of Hamilton, and sister-in-law to Sandy (Dan) Farrell of Mississauga. Held dear by Jen (Musoke) and Oliver Sendaula of Niagara Falls. Gwen was a cherished friend and family member to many. Predeceased by her parents, Doris (2000) and Byron (1990) Forrest, and her sister Joan Smith (2006).

Gwen was a deeply compassionate, caring, kind, generous person. She brought love and happiness to everyone in her life. She loved spending time with family and friends, cuddling her pets, watching the birds, reading, shopping, bowling, and going out to restaurants. Her warm smile and sense of humour brought joy to those around her. She will be deeply missed.

Cremation has taken place as per her wishes. At a later date, a private family burial will take place at the Port Dover Cemetery. If desired, memorial contributions to the Domestic Abuse Services Oxford or the Canadian Diabetes Association would be greatly appreciated and may be arranged through the Brock and Visser Funeral Home (519-539-0004).
