Pacific Grove – Gwen Straight lived her passions of education, volunteerism, and sharing her life with others. Born in Ohio, Gwen spent most of her years in Michigan, graduating from Ferndale High School, Michigan State University, and starting her life long partnership with her husband, Richard. They retired to Pacific Grove, California in 2000.

Gwen found great value in working with pre-school children establishing a strong foundation for a love of learning. Her work with Kappa Alpha Theta at the state and national level afforded her enriching experiences with hundreds of young women. Volunteering at St. Mary's by-the-Sea Episcopal Church, Canterbury Woods, and knitting baby blankets for the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society filled her days.

Gwen touched many lives in many ways, especially her family: Richard (husband), and their children, Jeff, Susan, Robert, Jes and their families.

A memorial service will be held on April 6, 2013, 2:00 PM, at St. Mary's by-the-Sea Episcopal Church, 146 Twelfth Street, Pacific Grove, California.

In lieu of flowers, please make remembrance donations to Canterbury Woods Employee Education Fund, Kappa Alpha Theta, or Hospice of the Central Coast.
