Madeliene Kaye Gwin, 79, passed away at her home in Sheridan on Friday, April 10, 2020.
Born May 2, 1940 in Wayne County, Indiana she was the daughter of the late Denver and Hermeonia "Beanie" (Winters) Cohee.
She grew up in New Paris, Ohio and graduated from Jefferson High School with the class of 1958.
She and David Lee Gwin were married on Oct. 31, 1959. Mr. Gwin passed away in June, 2001.
Mrs. Gwin had a zest for life and a deep love for her family. In her free time she played golf and liked to putter around in her yard tending to her flowers. She also enjoyed volunteering at the Open Arms Food Pantry in Sheridan. Her kind and giving spirit helped brighten the lives of the residents. She never missed an opportunity to play Euchre with friends. During her working years, after the kids were grown, she worked as a bookkeeper for KMart.
Trying to slow Mrs. Gwin down was never an easy task. When it came to her family, especially the grandkids, it was full speed ahead. Whatever her grandchildren were involved in always took top priority.
Survivors include her daughter, Kimberly Kae (Bob) Sheehan of Lexington, Ky.; son, David Ross (Pamela) Gwin of Sheridan; six grandchildren, Shawn, Jourdan, Jake, Abby, Drew and Tyler; four great-grandchildren; sister, Barbara "Bobbie" Lipps of New Paris, Ohio; sister-in-law, Linda Cohee of New Paris, Ohio; and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
Other than her husband, she was preceded in death by her parents; brother, Denver "Denny" Cohee; and her brother-in-law.
A celebration of life is being planned for a later date.
Memorial contributions may be presented to the Epilepsy Foundation, 8301 Professional Place West, Suite 230, Landover MD, 20785. Arrangements have been entrusted to Kercheval Funeral Home in Sheridan.
