In Loving Memory ~

It is with deep sorrow and immense love that we mourn the passing of Gwynneth Yvonne Foulds, of Vancouver, British Columbia, on January 17, 2024, at the age of 98 years.

She was predeceased by her siblings, Nellie, Grace, Jack, Harold, and Ronald, and parents John Thomas Foulds and Ellen Foulds (nee Staley).

Gwynne was born June 25, 1925, in a two-bedroom sod house on a homestead in Vanguard, Saskatchewan, the family then moved to Kelowna in the early 30's where she received her schooling and then graduated from Sprott Business School.

She started work at BC Tree Fruits, and then life led her to travel to many other countries where she held down jobs in Australia and England. After returning to Vancouver, she worked for The Foundation Company of Canada (now Aecon), and finally the Port of Vancouver, where she retired as the private secretary to the Port Manager.

She will be dearly missed by all she touched.
