Gwen and Adney moved to Ottawa in 1961 with their first daughter Alison and Sandra quickly joined them in 1962 then Karen Leslie Ann in 1965. In 1974 Gwen and Adney spent a year at University Laval mastering French. Gwen continued working throughout her nursing career at the Montford Hospital in Ottawa. Gwen and Adney lived in Almonte, Ontario for a few years before retiring and moving to McLennan Valley on Salt Spring Island. Gwen started working at Lady Minto Hospital shortly after arriving in Salt Spring. Gwen and Adney loved their time on the Island and had many wonderful friends and experiences. Gwen started painting again thanks to the lush scenery on their beautiful 10 acre dream property. After Adney passed away in 2009, Gwen moved back to Ottawa in 2010 where she traded in her gardening hat and gloves and moved to condo living.
