'Gwyn' Margaret Elizabeth Gwynedd Strike

June 29, 1930 - January 23, 2023


Gwyn Strike (Margaret Elizabeth Gwynedd), born June 29th 1930, age 92 passed away peacefully on January 23rd 2023 with her beloved husband of 65 years by her side.

Mom lived a life full of travel and adventures with Dad, moving to new and exciting destinations, with vastly different cultures and climates. Born in Pwllheli, Wales, Mom spent her early years enjoying the ocean, headlands, wilderness and wildlife surrounding her childhood home. She left for university to obtain her teaching degree. Education was extremely important to her and she was very proud to be an English teacher. After meeting Ken during her time at the university, they married in 1957. They started a new adventure when they moved to Guyana and started raising their young family of three.

A job opportunity for Ken had them moving in 1968 from the heat of Guyana to the winters of Ottawa. They eventually settled in Kemptville in 1972.

In 1989 they packed up once again for a cross Canada trip to their home on Salt Spring Island. They kept busy in their retirement here with their hobby farm and gardening, as well as with many church and social activities.

Moms’ knowledge and enjoyment of calligraphy and writing, sewing and quilting, being a Girl Guide leader, camping, hiking, church activities, gardening, baking have all been activities shared and appreciated with her children and grand-children. She could always be found in her huge vegetable garden, or in the kitchen cooking and preserving.

Mom spent her last few years under the exceptional care of the staff at Greenwoods Elder Care on Salt Spring Island, BC. We would like to express our deep gratitude for the thoughtfulness and care of Mom during this time.

Predeceased by her parents and brother Fred. Survived by her husband Ken, sons Richard (Pam), Trevor, daughter Karen (Greg), granddaughters Christine (Tyler), Kayla (Jesse), Angela, Chelsea (Mark), Katie and great-granddaughter Ella.

Please join us, celebrating her life on Saturday February 18th at 2:00 pm at All Saints by-the-Sea (110 Park Drive)

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Greenwoods Eldercare or Lady Minto Hospital.
