Gwen Jane Axworthy 1916 - 2009

I was fortunate enough to spend a fair amount of time with "Mrs. A" a few years back. In her 80's at the time she was sharp as a whip and still taking university classes ! A smart, tough, compassionate, prairie woman. From her obit:

Norman and Gwen Axworthy were part of the great generation that endured the depression, won the war, built a modern Canada, and made it into a sharing and tolerant society. Gwen was raised in a loving family and community, lived these values all her life, and ensured that this ethic was passed on to her children and their families in turn.

Rest in peace, Mrs. A.
