Dear Crawford Family, I remember Gwen and Bob as being such very good neighbors and friends to Skip and me when we lived across the street from them. We had many good times together and she will be missed by so many people. Alyce Schipper

Sympathies to Gwen's family and friends. Gwen was our neighbor and we often chatted when she walked by. I remember when she decided to give up her vegetable garden because it was becoming too much to care for--I think she was in her 80s! And she reminded me of my late grandma who was also a walker and can-do kind of person. I feel lucky to have known her.

I loved knowing Gwen. She was a neighbor,a friend, and fellow Congregragationalist. I remember going to an aerobics class at the high school and there she was ready to go. Always had a kind word and a devilish smile. She was so sweet.
