Gwendolyn Ann Epps Kennedy was born on February 23, 1958 to the late Williams Epps Sr. and Lorine Little Green in Thomasville, North Carolina. Her precious memories came to a quiet closure on May 30, 2016. She will be missed by all who knew her.
She attended the Thomasville City Schools system and was a member of Union Baptist Church. Gwen will be remembered as a very friendly, loving and caring person who touched a lot of people’s lives. With her giving spirit she opened her home and heart to people in need. To know her was to love her and Gwen loved people. She never met a stranger!
