Gwyneth passed away at Malaspina Gardens, Nanaimo after suffering with dementia for years. She was born in Holyhead, North Wales, schooled in Coventry during World War II, and trained as a nurse in London during the Blitz.

Gwyneth worked as a midwife and nurse in England, Cleveland, Vancouver, Burnaby, and Nanaimo. She adored delivering babies and was admired by her patients.

Gwyneth was predeceased by parents, Mary and Frederick Spencer, and siblings, Eddie, Nana, Bill, Winnie, Margaret, and John.

She is survived by her last sister, Mona of Lantzville, BC, as well as many nephews and nieces.

Grateful thanks to the staff at Malaspina Gardens, who were so kind and caring to Gwyneth.
