She was born on November 1st, 1936 in Assinaboia SK, moved to Toronto in the early 1950’s.  Gwen was predeceased by her husband William “Bill” Everson, her parents Robert W. and Margot (Galbraith) Costain and her siblings Emmett, Lorna, Joe, Floyd, Margarat, Leland, John, Sam and Dorothy.  She was the dearly loved mother of Susan Everson (David Black), Paul (Debbie) Everson, JoAnne (Kevin) Wheeler and Lynn (Chris) Zardo; grandmother of Josh (Jenn), Laura (Jon), Brendan (Kris), Eric (Kayla), Leah (Johnson), Hilary (Josh), Stacey, (Derek), Greg (Tianna) and great grandmother of Ben, James, Nick, Callie, Charlie, Grant, Raya, Linus, Remy, Gibson, Walker, Nazriya, (another expected in August), Henry, Owen, Clementine, Milo and Jade. 

She was a stay at home mother until all were in school. She then worked in Toronto in administrative and clerical roles.  After she retired to live full time at the “cottage”, she volunteered for years with the Alzheimer’s Day Away Program in Lanark, the McDonalds Corners Agricultural Society, (kitchen) for fair and event dinners and the Snow Road Snowmobile Club.  Gwen was a long time member of The 39ers, played cards and enjoyed social trips.  One of her favorite things was coffee on the front deck in her rocking chair.  She will be missed by all her family and many good friends.
