Gwendolyn attended Mooseheart High School and later earned an AS in Medical Transcription from Florida Technical College where she graduated with her best friend Pat. She dedicated many years to her career, working at Oklahoma State University and EVAS International, where she made numerous friends. After retiring, she cherished spending time with friends and her grandchildren as often as she possibly could.

She was a devout member of First Christian Church in Deland and found joy in sewing, reading, puzzles, and being an avid fan of Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy.
