Gwen Dowds Death, Obituary – Integrated College Dungannon shared the sad news that its wonderful dinner lady, Gwen Dowds, passed away last night. Gwen spent many years employed by ICD. She worked through retirement to stay at ICD since she liked her employment at the College and the students so much.
Gwen was adamant to keep selling her snacks to the students, so she opened what the students affectionately referred to as “Gwen’s Den” at the side of The Hub when Covid struck and the canteen footfall needed to be decreased.

It is saddened to learn of the devastating news that Gwen Dowds has left this world and is no longer with us. Gwen Dowds’s death was made known publicly. We express our condolences to Gwen Dowds’s family during this difficult time. According to the statement that can be seen below, we discovered the news of the death via Integrated College Dungannon on social media.

It is with a heavy heart that I share with you, our local community, the sad news that our wonderful dinner lady, Gwen Dowds, passed away last night.
Gwen worked at ICD for many years. She loved her job at the College and the students so much that she worked beyond retirement to remain at ICD.
When Covid struck, and the canteen footfall needed to be reduced, Gwen was determined to continue to sell her snacks to the students and opened what fondly became known as ‘Gwen’s Den’ at the side of The Hub.
Unfortunately, Gwen did not return to the College, this September, after a period of illness however, she continued to stay in touch, with staff at the College, to ask how all the students and staff were, and to say how much she missed being there.
Everyone who knew Gwen will remember the happy glint in her eye and her infectious smile. She was a kind and caring lady and an outstanding worker; loved so much by all at ICD.
On behalf of the whole ICD community, I offer my sincerest sympathy to Gwen’s husband, Geordie; her children, Mandy, Keith and Beverley, her extended family, neighbours and many friends. May she rest in peace.
Mr Andrew Sleeth
Principal

What is Gwen Dowds’s Cause of Death?

The circumstances surrounding Gwen Dowds’s passing have never been made public. This story will be brought up to date as soon as we are in possession of more information pertaining to the subject matter. We pray that God would give those who are grieving the deceased the fortitude and determination to move on with their lives. One of the most agonizing sensations that may be experienced on earth is the loss of a loved one. Everyone who is going through a terrible time as a result of this death is in our thoughts and prayers at this time.

It is necessary for there to be a destination at the conclusion of every voyage. The journey of the departed person here on earth has regrettably come to an end now that they have passed away. No one wants to die. Even people who have a strong desire to see heaven do not wish to perish in order to accomplish their goals. And yet, we will all arrive at the same place someday: the grave. No one has ever been able to avoid it, which is exactly how it should be given that death is almost certainly the single best development in the history of existence. It is the agent of transformation in life. It gets rid of the old things so that room can be made for the new ones.

Tributes to Gwen Dowds

As a result of the announcement of Gwen Dowds’s passing being made public, friends, family, and other people who were close to Gwen Dowds are going through a period of intense grief. I don’t believe that life should be viewed as something terrifying. In my opinion, it’s very similar to getting a soothing massage after a long day at the office. In the end, you will have to pick yourself up and head back to work at some point. To sum it all up, that pretty much sums up life, death, and the economy.
