DAVIS: It is with profound sorrow that we announce that Gwen Davis, beloved mother to only daughter Kim and her husband Mitch Iwasiuk and grandma to Misheyla (Eric), Riley (Kaylene) and Cody, passed away on May 24, 2009 after a courageous year long battle with cancer, at the age of 65 years. Gwen felt exceptionally blessed to have one daughter, a son-in-law and three grandchildren that she loved more than life. She was involved in the lives of her family and never missed an occasion to attend anyone of their activities. She was especially proud of her grandchildren graduating and continuing their education at college and university. Gwen was the most kind and loving person who welcomed friends and neighbors into her world and cherished them all. Her cooking skills were exceptional and anyone who had the luck to share a meal, left her home with a care package of home-cooked food to be enjoyed the next day. She felt best when outside and at one with nature, and under her constant care and watchful eye grew the most amazing garden. The flowers flourished under her touch and gave pause to everyone to stop and take in a moment of peace and beauty. Her love of animals created and strengthened bonds with many members of the community who also shared her compassion for all of God’s creatures. Gwen’s wonderful sense of humour and generous spirit endeared her to many, with a wink and a smile, you knew you were blessed to be a part of her life. She never missed a party and celebrated life as a gift! Her more than 35 years at Reesor’s Jewellery expanded her world of friends and people always remembered her expertise and care when they purchased something special. Gwen will be missed as a wonderful friend, neighbor and co-worker, but most deeply as a mother and grandmother who left us far too soon. A Celebration of Gwen’s Life will be held at the Brockie Donovan Chapel, 332-8th Street, on Saturday, May 30, 2009 at 1:00 p.m. with Rev. Joe Ball officiating. Interment will follow at Rosewood Memorial Gardens.

During our years at home, Mom quietly taught us the importance of family, friendship, and community. Once we were well established in school, Mom began to share with us her artistic talents through her beautiful painting and sketching. Her paintings grace the walls of our homes and those of many other family members and friends. Mom, we will miss your gracious presence, the twinkle in your eye, and your quiet but keen sense of humour that you shared with those closest to you. You are truly loved by all! The family would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the staff and doctors at Riverdale Personal Care Home, the Palliative Care volunteers, and especially Eleanor Madden for her support to Mom and our family over the past few years.
