Condolences for Gwendolyn Dupray

Anne Kathrine Dølgaard posted on 9/12/19

I am so grateful to have been a part of Gwens universe of love, care and laughing since 1976. She has been the one who kept in touch with everyone, and made sure we felt like her extended family. The US postal service ought to design a stamp in honour of their most faithful customer for 50 years. Gwen has spent a fortune sending cards for everyones birthdays and hollidays. Handwritten letters with photos , recepies, holliday ornaments and all kind of surprises. My house and my heart is filled with warm memories of her, and I treasure everyone of them. To Hank, Charlene, Trevor and Chad: Thank you for sharing Gwen with all of us, and all my respect for the way you have supported her over the past ten years.

I just saw this, I am so deeply sorry for your loss.. Gwen altered my wedding dress not once but twice! She was a long time close friend to my husband's family. Gwen was our wedding coordinator, she had such pizazz and humor. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers. Such a great lady!

I loved Gwen. I was her nurse in pulmonary rehab. We shared many stories surrounding the love she had for her family. Her amazing grandchildren brought her true joy. Her warmth and kindness was enjoyed by all of us in Pulm Rehab. I admired her courage and strength with all the challenges she faced and I will truly miss her. My heart goes out to you.

I loved Gwen. I was her nurse in pulmonary rehab- we shared many stories that were always delightful surrounding her love for her family. She had such a warmth about her that was endearing. She fought her diagnosis with such courage and dignity. I truly enjoyed being with her when she was part of our pulm rehab family. I am saddened to hear that she passed. My heart goes out to you all.

I am so sorry to hear about Mrs. Gwen. She was like a second mom to me growing up with Trevor and Chad. I will always remember swimming at her house and she would fix us lunch.

My deepest sympathy goes to her family. I was the nurse that saw her most days when she came to clinic at Duke. I loved talking to her and her wonderful daughter. I know she will be missed. It was a pleasure caring for her.

I affectionately called Mrs. Dupray...."Aunt Gwen" every time she came to work at the film studio or any time I came to pick up work, or run errands for she and my mom to work outside of the film industry. She genuinely felt like family! I've cried around her, laughed, been upset, and even celebrated holidays together, like family. But what made her "Aunt Gwen" to me, was when we could share The Word of God together. I truly believe that God made her an honorary sister to my she was mine too. I pray strength to my extended family. Thank you for blessing my family with your love; Rest peacefully and proudly in the arms of Jesus Aunt Gwen. Love Always!

On behalf of Ina Sproul’s family, please accept our sincere condolences on the passing of Gwen. Ina was Gwen’s aunt and our cousin. As young children, we would spend time with our Aunt Lorena, our cousin Charlene and of course Gwen. We have fond memories of those times. Aunt Ina was known for her Nanaimo “Domino” squares which Gwen loved. She would make a pan of the Squares every time she knew Gwen was coming to visit. Gwen was clearly committed to her Canadian family and kept in touch regularly with her cards and lovely notes. Cherish the memories of Gwen as we will. She was a special person.

Our heart felt thoughts & prayers to all of Gwen's Family & Friends. She has been a true treasure of friendship to our family over the past fifty years. Rest in peace dear friend❤

We are so sorry to hear about Gwen's passing. She was an amazing person, kind, generous, loving and so thoughtful. My kids loved receiving her holiday and birthday cards, which she sent to each one individually and for ALL the holidays - St. Patrick's Day, Valentine's Day, Easter, Halloween. I loved talking with her when she would come to Virginia to visit. She was at so many of our kid's big events - baptisms, birthdays, dance recitals, school functions. The world is a little lonlier place without your mother in it.
