Francis Gwendolyn Walton (Mitchell)
1922 - 2020

Gwen Walton, late of Estevan, SK passed away peacefully on Sunday, June 21, 2020 at the Estevan Regional Nursing Home at 98 years young.

Gwen was predeceased by her husband Edward Walton; daughter Leanne and son-in-law Lonnie Wolos; parents, Isaac and Ethel Mitchell (Livingston); brothers, Stanley, Gordon (Ruby) and Clifford (Shirley); sisters, Eileen (Gordon) Miller, Beatrice (Tom) Cox, Ella (Wilfred) Miller and Vera (Milford) Swalwell; brothers-in-law, Lyle, Joe (Ann) and Robert Dickinson; sister-in-law Louise (Gordon) McGreggor.

Gwen is survived by her children, Ray (Elaine) Walton, Keith (Fern) Walton, Glen (Merridith) Walton, Donna (Dwight) Dukart, Denise (Sam) Dryden and Murray (Carol); sister Blanch Dickinson and sister-in-law Margret Mitchell.

Gwen was born to Isaac and Agnes Mitchell in January, 1922 in the Justice, Manitoba area. One of nine children Gwen was athletic, she loved sports of all kinds but especially baseball and curling. Meeting and marrying Ed Walton at the start of WWII. Ed enlisted and Gwen worked through the war years. When Ed returned home, they packed up and moved to Bryant, Sk and began farming. Soon children arrived with four boys and three girls and at one point they had four kids under three and with no modern conveniences, hard work was always required. Gwen did however have time to enjoy all the kids, friends and activities of Bryant, Benson and eventually Estevan. Mom’s heart broke when she lost Leanne and Lonnie in a terrible accident but found a way to heal and soldier on.

Gwen had a special place in her heart for 14 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren as well as numerous nieces and nephews. She never missed a chance to cut and collect any article appearing in the newspaper and eagerly sharing their accomplishments with anybody and everybody.

We’ll miss you Mom.

Aunt Gwen will always hold a special place in my heart. When my Dad, Joe Walton (Gwen's brother-in-law - Uncle Eddie's brother) moved back to Saskatchewan, we spent lots of time at the farm with all the cousins. She was always there to help with homework, cooking classes or whatever. I loved her to the moon and back and will definitely miss her smiling face and great attitude.
