Gwendolyn (Gwen) Bertha Boymer (Montgomery)left this life February 29, 2016 at the age of 88 to join her husband, Rev. Tolie Albert Boymer and her Lord and Saviour.
Gwen was born in St. Catherine’s, Ontario to Rev. James and Mabel Montgomery in 1927. She attended Bible College and secretarial school in Ontario before marrying Tolie in 1954. Together they traveled across Canada ministering, until they settled in Oyen, Alberta where they raised 5 daughters—Laurel, Lucille, Starlene, Melody, and Juanita. They moved to Sicamous in 1974.
Two of Gwen’s favourite jobs while working as a bookkeeper/secretary were at Scory Motors in Oyen and the high schools in Enderby and Sicamous. She loved playing various instruments, singing/directing choirs and teaching bookkeeping. Her favourite pastime was knitting.
After the death of her husband, Gwen moved to Vancouver Island where she resided until her passing.
She will be dearly missed by her daughters, grand and great grandchildren, friends and all those she touched during her life.

Remembering, we had a grand time at the 100th reunion in 2013. We welcomed and embraced familiar and newly met family. We shared conversations that bind us together. We connected some links and discovered others.
Now that we’ve entered 2014, we are excited about launching our second century with the 101st. The plan is to return to Jefferson, Texas, Labor Day weekend, August 29 - 31, 2014.
With that, the time is here….time for plans to start moving forward. Starting at the top and with our family leaders, the Men of the McIntosh Family, this letter comes to you.
You are asked to contribute $100.00. This amount from each of you will help with the family goal……. insuring all family members get the opportunity to attend. It is very important that you respond one way or the other so we can gain direction on how to move forward.

2013 marks the 100th year of family gatherings for the descendants of Josiah McIntosh, Sr.
In June 1913, Josiah McIntosh, Jr., known as Joe, caring for his 102 year old Father, Josiah McIntosh, Sr., conceived the idea of a "family gathering". Josiah Sr., being a former slave, had seen families destroyed, split up and denied the opportunity of being together. He constantly emphasized to Joe Jr., the importance of family knowing and supporting one another. This emphasis encouraged Joe Jr,. and his wife, Mattie Ruffin McIntosh to call his and her siblings, their families; 14 of their children (some grown-up) and their families to their home in Jefferson, Texas to share in a feast and fellowship. This feast and fellowship began a celebration that has continued for 100 years for the Joe Jr., clan and some of the clan of his siblings.
This year, 2013, the Joe Jr., clan, as our ancestors did that first gathering in 1913, is calling together as "one big family" all descendants of Josiah McIntosh, Sr.
Our family will commemorate the 100th celebration
