The Guest Book is expired.

Appleyard, Gwendolen M.

For one who wrestled with the boys in grammar school, fighting with life today, May 28, 2011 got the best of Gwen. Gwen was a tenacious and feisty person with an iron will. She definitely did have a tender heart, but Gwen was both naughty and nice. One had to expect the unexpected from her. She surely kept those close to her on their toes. Gwen attended New Rochelle Schools, being the first NRHS female graduate to attend Vassar. She excelled both scholastically and athletically, continuing with golf enthusiastically through the years. Upon graduation from Vassar Gwen attended Katherine Gibbs and took research type employment such as with Association of Casualty & Surity, Co. and Equitable Life. She was a Philanthropist and a lifelong resident of New Rochelle having established a trust for the beautification of New Rochelle Parks and promoted the establishment of two large fountains in the Huguenot Lakes. Gwen gave generously to animal causes and was a participant in activities and on the board of the New Rochelle Humane Society. A memorial service for Gwen will be held on Friday, June 3, 2011 at 12:00pm at George T. Davis Funeral Home. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the New Rochelle Humane Society. George T.
