Gwendoline Ann Mundy (Gwen) nee Eyre

Gwendoline Ann Mundy 3rd September 1921 – 11th September 2020

Peacefully on 11th September 2020 at Southport Hospital formally of Clitheroe Gwen aged 99 years.

Loving Matriarch of the Harrison and Dodd family, also much loved by the pupils at Moorland and Heathland Schools.

The loving wife of the late Len Mundy, adored and loving mum of Janet and Lindsay. Cherished Nan of Helen, Jonathan, Lene and Great Nan to Abigail, Lydia, Isobel, Jax, Violet and Annie.

Gwen was brought up in Marylebone, London (not quite a Cockney) and lived in the vicinity of London until the 1970’s.  During WW2 she worked in munitions before self-evacuating to the family’s holiday property in Berkshire where her first daughter, Janet, was born.  Gwen spent many years as a Teaching Assistant in Sudbury, Wembley and as an Adult Education and Carer at Boroughcourt Home, Sonning where she made many lifelong friends.  In 1986 she moved with Len to Clitheroe, where the family embarked on running Moorland School, which is still a family enterprise.  Gwen loved working in the Nursery with the little children and was a staunch advocate of “education above all” – ask all of her grandchildren about “times tables”!  Gwen loved to spend time in Tenerife and Cyprus with her family but also visited Las Vegas and New York in her 80’s and wished that she had discovered America earlier in her life.  She had a passion for looking “just right” and like the Queen favoured the complete ensemble in one shade from top to toe.

Gwen will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

MESSAGES for the family of Gwendoline Ann Mundy (Gwen) nee Eyre


Brenda Layzell

I am so very sad to hear that Gwen is no longer with us. She was a lovely, lovely lady. Always beautifully dressed, great sense of humour, and always ready to help family and friends. She has been an inspiration for me. She will be greatly missed, but you have some wonderful memories of her long life with you. Janet and Lindsay you were greatly blessed to have had her as your. Other. Sincere condolences to all the family xxx



Jovial, funny, happy, humours, lively, approachable, sociable, immaculate, said it as she saw it, are words that I feel sum Gwen up. June and Dennis (my mum and dad) have known Gwen for over 50 years so Gwen had became a big part of our family as well. I remember mum saying just several weeks ago, “I am looking for a lovely birthday card for Gwen, as she has said in the past how she looks forward to receiving pretty cards”. The lost of Gwen has been extremely sad for all the Wilkinson side of the family. Gwen was always at the family weekends and family do’s being the life and soul of the party. The last time I saw Gwen was at a Warners weekend, and I remember it still how Gwen had both Aunty Janet and Uncle Arthur at her beck and call. This will always bring a smile to my face, how Gwen had them running around after her, along with Uncle Arthurs wheelchairs manoeuvres. I will look back and remember that weekend with fond memories. We have lost an incredible lady who will always be fondly us all. Love to all the family during this difficult time.

We are both devastated at the loss of this wonderful lady. She was always so cheerful, and we are fortunate to have many lovely memories of happy times with her both here and in Cyprus. Hopefully, your own happy memories of a life well lived will comfort you all going forward. Thinking of you all, you are an amazing family, and we send all our love to you all.
