This She did though her body declined Yet Her Heart and Mind Grew Strong,” recalls Pastor Stephens.
Gwen devoted her life to helping people. She worked as an LPN for over 40 years. She was actively involved in a Church of the Advent Women’s knitting group. In 2004 she was featured on the cover of Healthy Foundations Magazine for being a part of and leading Tai Chi classes at Bethesda Hospital. Above all she loved playing games whether video or cards. Super competitive she’d never let you beat a high score she had and would continuously remind you who that she was the best at any given game that you played with her.
Gwen will be laid to rest at 10:00 a.m., on Friday, September 24, 2021, at Dayton National Cemetery. 4400 West 3rd Street 45428.
3 Words to Sum Up Her Life
Trusted in God.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 NLT
And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died. We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died. For the Lord himself will come down from heaven with a commanding shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trumpet call of God. First, the believers who have died will rise from their graves. Then, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. Then we will be with the Lord forever. So, encourage each other with these words.3 words that sum up the life.
