Gwen Abram Collection -- Lansdowne Park, Page 1

Mrs. Abram grew up in England and emigrated in 1951 to Canada with her daughter a few months after her husband Ken. They lived on Galiano Island where Mr. Abram worked in the logging industry. Expecting their second child in February 1952 they were on the way by fish boat to the hospital but their son Robert had other ideas and was born during a storm on the boat. The family moved to Vancouver and then to Richmond where Gwen battled the Vancouver and Richmond welfare departments and big business in Richmond. The next move was to Prince George where Gwen joined the Prince George College students' successful sit in. While in Vancouver and Richmond the family had spent many summers at Mission Point on the Sunshine Coast and when Ken retired the moved permanently to the Coast. Mr. Abram died in 2007 and Mrs. Abram now lives in Sechelt.
