Bangor - Gwendolyn Roeder (nee Ward) was born in Starbuck, Minnesota, to Alyce and Lyman Ward. A lifelong educator, Mrs. Roeder taught in Long Beach, CA, Minneapolis, Rochester and New London, Minnesota. She was united in marriage to Jerry Roeder in 1971, and the couple welcomed daughter Amy in 1973. Gwendolyn and Jerry made their home in New London, MN, until Jerry's death in 2017, when Gwen relocated to Bangor.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Alyce and Lyman; and her husband, Jerry. She is survived by daughter, Amy (Eric); and grandsons, Evan and Kurtis.
In lieu of flowers, please send a donation in her memory to the Bangor Public Library, 145 Harlow St., Bangor, or drop off new school supplies to the United Way, 700 Main St., Suite 1, Bangor, ME 04401.
