July 19, 1941 – June 7, 2012
With her loving family surrounding her and with quiet grace and dignity, Gwen gently slipped away from us on Thursday, June 7, 2012 at Southwood Hospice, Calgary.
She will forever be in the hearts of her children, family and friends. Gwen is survived by her two children, Andrew (Sheri) Hollebakken, Lisa (Ike) Kolias, as well as six grandchildren: Lauren, Ashley and Gavin Hollebakken, Geordie, Larissa and Nick Kolias. Gwen is also survived by her siblings, Sharon (Ed Gee) James, Fred (Patti) James, Donna James and Gwen’s best friend, Kathie James. Gwen will be greatly missed by her nieces Brandy, Cara, Jodi and her nephews Tyler, Trevor, Carey and Scott.
Gwen was predeceased by her mother and father, Ann and Ralph James. At Gwen’s request, no service was held. Special thanks to the staff at the Tom Baker, especially Felistas who cared for Gwen with such compassion. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
