Gwen & Dick lived in Toronto and later built their first house in Cooksville (now Mississauga) in 1949. After many years in Mississauga they retired to Bobcaygeon, Ontario to live in their summer house by the lake. Winters were spent in Florida, Utah and Texas finally coming back to Ontario for their final winters in Ontario.

Gwen volunteered at the Mississauga Hospital (Trillium) in the Tuck Shop and the Emergency Department for many years. They travelled all over Europe and the British Isles. She really enjoyed golf and even when she was not able to play anymore was an avid fan. She was a private lady who was born in the wrong century.
