February 13, 1926 - August 14, 2019
Gwendolyn Margaret Salisbury nee Nuth, known to all as “Gwen”, passed away quietly on August 14, 2019 at the still young at heart age of 93. Her quilts will keep us warm and her world traveller stories will cheer and inspire us. She was pre-deceased by her beloved husband Henry Frederick Salisbury “Harry”, her sisters Elizabeth Robertson and Shirley Jane Nuth, and her brothers Melvin and Joseph Nuth. She is survived by her brother Robert Nuth and her three sons David (Els) Salisbury, Robert (Marlene) Salisbury and Ian (Jaye) Salisbury. She will be dearly missed by her six grand-children Jenny, Shelagh, Sarah, Daniel, Brian and Matthew Salisbury, her great-grand child Rose Fisher, and her many nieces and nephews. The funeral will be held at St. Thomas the Apostle Anglican Church, 2345 Alta Vista Dr. on Saturday, August 17, 2019 at 2 pm. A reception will follow at approximately 3:30 pm in the church hall at Woodroffe United Church 207 Woodroffe Ave. (Between Carling Ave. and Richmond Rd.) Both venues are wheelchair accessible. There will be no visitation and there will be a private interment at Pinecrest Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Queensway-Carleton Hospital or the University of Ottawa Eye Institute. Special thanks from the family to Dr. Paul Fluit for his compassionate care and advice. A huge thank-you to the staff at Viva Barrhaven and the Carefor staff for their professionalism and kindness over the last few months, especially to nurse Catherine Brown.
