Gwenneth Downes (nee Porter)

May 31, 1952 โ€“ October 7, 2014
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved wife, mom, grandma, sister, auntie and friend, who has gone to be with her Lord and Saviour. Born in Burnaby and raised in Richmond until her early teens, Gwen and her family moved to Maple Ridge in 1966. She met future husband Gord in high school and their lifelong love began. Marriage, travel, family and the peacefulness of the east Ridge hobby farm would follow. Gwen was deeply devoted to her family and friends and considered her life to be blessed. She was predeceased by her parents, Bob and Margery Porter and is survived by her loving husband, Gord, children Stephanie and Mike (Tamara), grandson Mitchell, brothers, Gord (Michelle) and Ward (Lorna Jean). Gwen will be loved and fondly remembered by many cherished family members and friends. Celebration of Life to be held on Saturday, November 1, 2014 at 1:00pm at the Maple Ridge Baptist Church. In lieu of flowers, donations to the BC Cancer Foundation would be appreciated.

  1. Gordie and Family,

    I am truly sorry for all of you and for your loss and I wish I could have expressed that better at Gwen’s celebration of life today. I know how much her friendship meant to my mom and I have many of my own memories of Gwen’s kindness and generosity. She will be missed very much but always with all of you.
    Jamie’s and my prayers are with you all.
