Memorial services will be held at Foothills Christian Church, 9655 W. State St, Boise, at 3 p.m. Come and join us in celebrating Gwen's life and memories. Arrangements are under the direction of Riverside Funeral Service & Crematory, Boise. Gwen was born in Cottage Grove, Ore., on August 6, 1951. She was born to Frank and Mary Levings. She loved the Oregon coast, walking along the beach and flying kites. She spent a lot of time camping with her husband and enjoyed the outdoors tremendously. Gwen also enjoyed reading mysteries, cross-stitching and collecting frogs and cats. But, what gave her the most pleasure and joy in life was spending time with her family. Her face would light up at the sight of her grandchildren. She would spend hours playing with them- pushing them on the swing, jumping on the trampoline, playing cars and legos or simply laughing with them. She was the best Grandma a child could have. She was always generous with her time and energy! Gwen was part of a group at church, where she had close friends and looked forward to their time together weekly. She also adored her little dog, Chester. Gwen is survived by her loving and adoring family. Her husband, Oscar; her daughter and son-in-law,Julie and Art Tibbetts; her son and daughter-in-law, Scott and Stephanie McLaughlin; her brothers, Frank Levings, George Levings; and her father, Frank Levings; her grandchildren, Christian Tibbetts, Aidan Tibbetts, Jordan McLaughlin, and Broden Tibbetts. Dear Gwen, how we will miss your love and your smile. Your beautiful eyes and your boisterous chuckle and how you ran and laughed and played like a child. You have meant the world to your family and will never be forgotten. You always made your Grandchildren feel so extra special and they always missed you when you were gone. You have touched all of our lives and we will have a hole in our hearts where you belong. We know you are with the Lord now, so we are not worried, but we are sad for us. Give your mom a hug for us. Save us a spot and smile for us in Heaven- God will like that. Your will be dearly missed. We love you and are comforted in the knowledge of knowing that you are with our loving God. All our love, Your Family.
