Gwendolyn was a wonderful woman whom I looked up to for many years. Especially those years when I was becoming a young wife and mother. She took great care of me during those difficult years. I will always hold a special place in my heart for her. Rest easy precious and enjoy your reunion with Ralph, Stephonie and Ruthie and all the others that went before you. Also, if you see my mom and dad, please give them a hug from me.–Love, Patty
You know that was a great reunion in Heaven!!! Someday we will all be reunited and walking on streets of gold together! ❤️
Bobbie I was so sorry to hear about your Mom. Gwendolyn was a wonderful woman and I think about her every time I pass the house on Grand. Rest in Peace Gwendolyn.
Thank you so much! She will be missed!
Remembering Gwen very fondly for the loving and giving spirit that she shared with her family and friends. Many happy memories were made in my younger years hanging out with the family. Paul, Michael, Bobbie & Kathy – sympathy and prayers for you and for your families. Right now I ‘m remembering the great smiles and laughter from the Sidener family and how the room seemed to light up when any one of you were in it. May God’s light shine on Gwen, Ralph, Stephanie, Ruthie and your Grandma Esther (Nini). Peace be with you all.
Those were the good ol days!!! We definitely had some wonderful laughs! Great memories! Thank you for the kind words!
