Gwendolyn Mae Peterson

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Gwen Peterson on December 19, 2016 at the Cumberland Lodge.

Gwen lived and worked her whole adult life in the Comox Valley. She liked to be active and busy. She loved laughter, dancing, flower gardens, picnics at the beach, golfing, vacations, meeting old and new friends, and her family.

She had many enjoyable years volunteering with the Glacier View Lodge Auxiliary. Many thanks to the Cumberland Lodge care team.
