In loving memory ~
Gwendolyn Early was a caring wife, grandmother, great grandmother and friend. She left this world unexpectedly on November 19, 2022, at the age of 84 years young.
She was born in Chicago, Illinois to Gwendolyn and Frank Langher Sr. In her teen years she moved to Southern California with her brother Sparks Langher to finish high school and lived with her Aunt and Uncle. She met her husband Vaughn Thompson and had four children Tracy (EX: Malcolm), Mike (Patricia), Linda (Dan) and Matt (Julie); seven grandchildren Stuart, Carsen, Bryan, Jake, Nathan, William and Eric; and four great grandchildren: Evan, Gwenny, Ashleen, and Logan. The family moved to Canada in 1974.
She met her second husband Robert Early on Quadra Island. This blended family came with five children Rob (Dee), Reed (Nadeane), Lynde (Al), Erin (Jim) and Victor and four grandchildren: Shoshana, Brie, Laif, Emily.
Gwen loved spending time weaving on her loom, knitting, spinning her own wool and quilting. Spending time with these designated groups allowed her to make lots of important friendships that she cherished.
She became a paramedic and also volunteered for Hospice for many years.
Her smiles and laughter were contagious and could light up any room.
She will be sadly missed and never forgotten…
