Gwen traveled as a child and teenager with her military family throughout the west coast and south.

She is survived by her children, Pamela Lord (Marcus), Oliver S. (Steve) Webb III (Kay), Kathleen White (Rick), and Natalie Weston (John); eight grandchildren, Roger Lord (Tracey), Emily Webb (Steven), Lee Foxx (Carrie), Oliver S. Webb IV (Ashton), Olivia Shore (Bryan), Avery White, Elizabeth Weston and Ryan Weston (Brittany); nine great-grandchildren; and brothers, Jim Coppenger and William Coppenger (Kathy). Gwen was also blessed to have several very close friends that she shared a special bond as well as numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.

    Gwen was one of a kind. Loving, caring and a great since of humor. She will be greatly missed.

  3. David Johnson says:

    Absolutely wonderful lady. I thoroughly enjoyed visiting her and Steve on our trips down from Texas and Tennessee. Always felt so much at home when we visited with them. Cindy and I will miss them both, yet we also know they are now together for an eternity with our loving God, our families, and our granddaughter who Olivia also helped care for before she passed.
