Obituary for Gwendolyn Meisener Gough

Age 95, passed away peacefully in Ivany Place, West Bedford on July 7, 2017. Born in Halifax, she was the daughter of the late S.C. Giffin and Emma Giffin (Meisener). Gwen was a 70 year member of the West End United Baptist Church, where she was a member of many church groups. Mom was fortunate to have made many life long friends through these groups. Mom loved her Bridge Club and had the time of her life playing 45's as well. Mom's homemade sweets and squares were second to none, especially her butterscotch pie. Mom stayed active and walked constantly up to her 90th birthday and was proud to say "I don't take a pill for anything!" Gwen is survived by her youngest son Blair (Kathy), daughter-in-law, Susan; grandchildren; Andrew (Alexandra), Robert (Bonnie), Michael, Laura (Duncan Carnegy), and Amy. She is also survived by great grandchildren, Layla, Carter, Adelaide, Brian and Chloe and another great grandson any day now. One life passes and another one begins. Gwen was predeceased by her husband of 63 years, Eric; her eldest son Brian; brothers, Cyril and Carl. Cremation under the care of Donald K. Walker Funeral Directors to take place with a private family burial in Pleasant Hill Cemetery at a later date. Special thanks to the wonderful staff at Ivany Place for the great care Mom received.
