Leggett, Gwendolyn A. (Gwen)

LEGGETT, Gwendolyn Annette -
Passed away peacefully at Hospice Wellington on Monday, July 29, 2019, at the age of 72.

Beloved wife of the late Gordon Leggett (2018). Lovingly remembered by daughter Bree and granddaughter Sh’aura, son Ryan and his wife Brigitte, grandchildren Ashley, Ryan and Justin, along with her brothers and sister, as well as her many relatives and friends.

Gwen will be remembered for her love, humour and compassion. She had great love for her family, and was always there to help and guide them, as well as others who needed her help. Gwen was born on August 23, 1947, daughter of Demetro and Clare (Annie) Marusiak. She attended school in Regina, obtaining her psychiatric nursing degree – a profession she practiced for several years. She also worked for the Kitchener-Waterloo Record, and the Canadian Blood Services during her career.

Gwendolyn married Gordon Leggett in 1969 and they raised two children, Bree and Ryan. The family spent many happy summers together at Southhampton, a place they enjoyed all their lives. In later years, Gwen and Gord spent their winters in Arizona. They made many friends along the way and cherished every one of them.

At Gwen’s request, there will be no funeral service. Cremation has taken place. Arrangements entrusted to the WALL-CUSTANCE FUNERAL HOME & CHAPEL, 519-822-0051 or If desired, donations to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
