Gwendolyn (Gwen) Bertha Boymer (Montgomery) left this life February 29, 2016 at the age of 88 to join her husband, Rev. Tolie Albert Boymer and her Lord and Saviour.
Gwen was born in St. Catherine’s, ON to Rev. James and Mabel Montgomery in 1927. She attended Bible college and secretarial school in Ontario before marrying Tolie in 1954. Together they traveled across Canada ministering, until they settled in Oyen, AB where they raised 5 daughters—Laurel, Lucille, Starlene, Melody, and Juanita. They moved to Sicamous in 1974.
Two of Gwen’s favourite jobs while working as a bookkeeper/secretary were at Scory Motors in Oyen and the high schools in Enderby and Sicamous.
She loved playing various instruments, singing/directing choirs and teaching bookkeeping. Her favourite pastime was knitting.
After the death of her husband, Gwen moved to Vancouver Island where she resided until her passing.
She will be dearly missed by her daughters, grand and great grandchildren, friends and all those she touched during her life.
