Gwendolyn "Gwen" Shirley Scott

(May 23, 1930 - May 23, 2022)

 

Gwendolyn Shirley Scott of Camrose, Alberta, passed away on Monday, May 23, 2022 at the age of 92 years.

 

Gwen was born May 23, 1930 in the rural Bittern Lake farm home of her parents Julius and Ludella Sanders.


She attended elementary school at East Bittern Lake, followed by a year of correspondence at home, one year at John Russel school, and finally attended Camrose High School where she graduated in 1948. After high school, Gwen joined the staff of Burgess McKay barristers and solicitors for one year before her marriage to Gordon Scott. They made their home north of Camrose where they worked as a couple on several different occupations including farming, well drilling (where she drove the water truck) and looking after laying hens. They also shared the duties of a rural mail delivery route for 28 years. In earlier years, she was an active member of the Swea district, partook in many farmer’s markets, as well as having tables at gun and hobby shows around the province. Gwen and Gordon raised two sons, Terry and Tracy.


Gwen was predeceased by her parents Carl Julius and Margaret Ludella Sanders; siblings Carl (Vera) Sanders, Rodena (Ted) Franklin, Ann Fouts, Rita (Jack) Malmas; husband Gordon; and son Terry.

 

She leaves behind her youngest son Tracy (Tina); her three grandsons Brad (Fran), Jeff (Brittany), and David (Jenna); and six great-grandchildren.
 

She will be remembered for her friendly nature and contagious smile, and will be missed by her friends, family members and the many people who called her “Mum”.
