In our inaugural episode, we sit down with Gwyn Butler to talk on finding hope, meaning and inspiration after losing a spouse.
Gwyn grew up in Edmonton after immigrating from Zimbabwe at the age of 8. She and her husband, Rick, first met in high school then connected at University and married in 1978. Gwyn and Rick lived and worked across Canada’s arctic for 15 years helping various remote communities with municipal management, leadership and community development before settling on an acreage SW of Cochrane with their two daughters. Gwyn’s passions and skills continue to be her motivation to volunteer in church and community as well as lending a helping hand when needed.
