She was a dedicated pastor's wife and loving mother for many years. She was a loving wife to her husband of 66 years, Darrel R. Gwinn, a wonderful mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and great-great grandmother, and a friend to all. Her main goal in life was to mother her children and help others whenever she could. She enjoyed life and being on of God's children. Born in Amma, West Virginia, she was the daughter of the late Mac G. Ledsome and Nora Mae Ledsome, both of Amma, West Virginia.

She had so much love in her heart and was always smiling. She loved life. We will miss her more than we can say. Our hearts hurt for her, but after the tremendous loss of her sweetheart in May of this year and her illness, we can have peace knowing that she is home at last, safe in the arms of God.
