After the war, Gwen and Joe moved to Kingman, Arizona for a couple of years, then to Southgate, California where they bought their first home and raised their two children, Sherril and Joe. Gwen was active in the local East Bell Women’s Club and the PTA.
They moved to Thousand Oaks, California, and Gwen joined the local volunteer hospital auxiliary, where she was active for many years. She eventually resumed her career in dentistry and took up square dancing.
After their children were grown, she and Joe moved to Saudi Arabia for Joe’s job and they traveled extensively throughout Europe, Africa, and Asia.
Upon their return to the U.S., they migrated to Corvallis, Oregon, where they spent the remainder of their lives being active in their church and the Elks Lodge. Gwen and Joe enjoyed traveling throughout the Pacific Northwest, meeting new friends and accumulating many interesting experiences and happy memories.
By those who knew her, she shall be missed.
Internment will occur at a later date.
Sweet Home Funeral Chapel is handling arrangements.
