On February 2, 2015, the Lord called home an amazing, wonderful woman. Gwendolynne Louise Johnson, affectionately known as Gwen, died from leukemia at the age of 60.
Friends and family remember her smile, the sound of her laughter, and her selflessness, always thinking of others before herself. Despite the recent trials of her life, she always had a smile and a humorous story to tell.
Gwen loved receiving visits from friends and family especially her grandchildren Aidynn and Jay. She was looking forward to meeting her newest grandchildren, Erin and Kevin, at the June family reunion.
Gwen was born in Iowa City, Iowa to Robert and Marilyn Mallary.
The family moved from Iowa to Montana where she attended Sentinel High School in Missoula.
Gwen met her husband of forty years, Wayne, at the Nazarene church they attended. They were married there on October 16, 1974. As a serviceman's wife, she accompanied him wherever his military career took them. After retiring from the Army, they moved to El Paso, Texas, where Gwen worked as a receptionist at Northeast Christian Academy and a telemarketer for Brylane. She relocated with Wayne to Lawton, Oklahoma when his job required him to move.
Gwen was preceded in death by her father, Robert, and brothers, Ivan and Dennis.
She is survived by her mother, Marilyn of Guntersville, Alabama; husband, Wayne Sr. of Lawton; sons Wayne Jr. (Stefanie) of Clearfield, Utah and Christopher of Puyallup, Washington; daughters Jaimie (Rhonda) of Hoover, Alabama and Amber of Lawton; brothers Douglas (Brenda) of Santa Fe, New Mexico and Joshua of Billings, Montana; sisters Lynnette (Wayne) Englishbee of Anchorage, Alaska, Bobbi (Michael) Stalder of Lander, Wyoming, and Elizabeth (Robert) Handley of Stevensville, Montana; six grandchildren; eight nephews; and seventeen nieces.
Should friends desire, memorials are asked to be donated in her name to the Stephenson Cancer Center, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.
