Gwen, Marie Davidson (nee Carmichael)

March 16, 1953 – June 26, 2013

Gwen Marie Davidson (nee Carmichael) was suddenly called home to be with her Heavenly Father the evening of June 26, 2013. While jogging and about one block from her home in Elkford British Columbia she passed away. Gwen will be lovingly remembered by Scott Davidson, her husband of 31 years, sisters Beth (Don) Posterski and Joyce Sillito, brother Lou (Nancy Hood) Carmichael, parents-in-law Doug and June Davidson, sister-in-law Ann, many nieces and nephews, and great nieces and nephews. Her parents James and Sadie predeceased her.  

The youngest of four children, Gwen was born March 16, 1953 and lived in Edmonton, Alberta until a young man from Ontario came on the scene and swept her off her feet. Shortly after marrying, the young man from Ontario and the city girl from Edmonton moved to the mountains of Alberta in Hinton where they spent 10 years learning together to enjoy all things outdoors.  After a brief return to the Edmonton area of Bruderheim they moved to the real mountains of Elkford, British Columbia.

Gwen will be dearly missed by so many. Gwen made a difference for others in so many ways–her love for her husband, her nonjudgmental listening ear for her friends, music ministry at her church and community volunteering. In honor of her enjoyment of riding on and taking (the best) pictures from the back seat of their motorcycle, in lieu of flowers, please consider a memorial donation to The Christian Motorcyclist Association. Box 532 Red Deer, Alberta T4N 5G1, 403-343-1370.

A Memorial Service was held in her honour on Wednesday, July 10th, 2013 at the Elkford Alliance Church. Messages of condolence may be sent to the family at Arrangements entrusted to Cherished Memories Funeral Services Ltd.
