SUMMERS, Gwen Louise - Our family announces with great sadness the sudden passing of Gwen Summers of Whitby on Monday, August 2, 2021, at Lakeridge Health Oshawa.
Gwen was predeceased by her husband Bruce (2006).
Much loved mother of Susan and Graham Wise, Jill and Chris Honda, Jennifer and Brian Legree, Doug Summers and Jennifer Rhines, Tom Summers, Stephanie and Matt Butler and Dawne Summers.

Loved niece of Kay Musgrave of Toronto. Loving grandmother of Brendan and Jamie Wise, Meredith Little and Keith Honda, Allison and Davis Legree, Meghan Summers and Nathaniel, Benjamin and Victoria Butler.
Great-grandmother of Jonas and Kade Little and Wren Wise.
Along with Bruce, the husband-and-wife team built and operated several golf courses in Durham Region, including Pickering (Seaton), Winchester, Lakeridge Links and Whispering Ridge. Family and faith were Gwen’s pillars. She took great pride watching her children and grandchildren perform on athletic and artistic stages and was an active member of Burns Presbyterian Church in Ashburn for many years.
Gwen truly valued the special friendships she made with members at Burns and other churches in Pickering and Oshawa.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions a private service will be held.
The family thanks the caring staff at Lakeridge Health Oshawa and the Kidney Care Clinic at Lakeridge Health Whitby.
Donations can be made to Burns Presbyterian Church or a charity of your choice.
