PETRIE, Gwendolyn Joan
July 19, 1949 – August 31, 2017
It is with broken hearts and so much sadness
we announce the passing of Gwen Petrie on
August 31, 2017. She fought like a warrior
against breast cancer for the past 4 years.
Gwen leaves to mourn her loss and cherish
her memories, brothers David (Michele), Barry
(Isabel), Dale (Wendy), Richard (Coralee),
sisters Marilyn (Gary), Sandra (Ed) as well as
numerous nieces and nephews, great nieces,
great nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and many
friends. Gwen was predeceased by her parents
Charles and Beverly Morgan, grandparents George
and Sarah McMartin and Charles and Florence Morgan,
husband Brian Petrie and fiancé Paul Casey. Gwen loved her family, friends and
a good hug. Gwen enjoyed going to quilting retreats, Jubilations, Stage West,
camping, and just having a good time. Gwen had a zest for life and those who met
her were changed for the better. Everybody loved Gwen!! Words cannot describe
the emptiness we feel…nor the joy we will carry with us. Gwen (my love) you will
remain in our hearts and thoughts forever. We love you to the moon and back!
Dave and Michele Morgan would like to extend thanks to Dr. Nixon, Dr. Stewart and
all of the nurses and staff at the Tom Baker Unit 47 and 46 for their kindness and
compassion to Gwen.
As per Gwen's wishes, no service will be held, but pour a Captain and Coke,
raise your glass and cheers!
