Retired missionary M. Gwendolyn Streight passed away 26 June. She was 90 years old.

Gwendolyn was born in 1929 in Iowa, and she accepted Jesus as Lord at the age of 6 after her family moved to Idaho. When Gwendolyn was in high school, she was sanctified and began feeling a call to full-time missions work. 

After high school, she attended Northwest Nazarene College (now University), where she received a Bachelor of Arts in Art in 1952. She also met her first husband, Dean Galloway, at NNC, and they got married in 1949. 

Gwendolyn and Dean served as a missionaries for nearly 25 years in Nicaragua and Colombia from 1953 until Dean passed away in 1977.

After Dean passed, Gwendolyn married Raymond McClung, who passed away in 1996. Four years later, Gwendolyn married LaVerne Streight, who passed away in December.

Memorial service for Gwendolyn will be held 2 p.m. 12 July at Nampa College Church of the Nazarene in Idaho.
