Gwen graduated from Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring, Maryland.

Gwen relocated to Spruce Pine in 1995 and earned her Associates Degree from Mayland Community College in 1999. After receiving her degree from Mayland, Gwen worked at the local hospital in Spruce Pine. She was the definition of a “people person,” as she preferred to spend every minute she could around friends and family.

Her generous, fun-loving spirit will be missed by the many lives she touched.
