Gwendolyn  Elaine  Weston
     Gwendolyn Elaine Weston, 90, of North Platte, formerly of Scottsbluff and Detroit, Mich., passed away Feb. 13, at Linden Court in North Platte. She was born June 24, 1922, to Clayton Frank and Cecilia Irma Auten Protzman at Detroit where she spent most of her life.
     Gwen received her schooling in Detroit graduating from Central High School and Grace Hospital School of Nursing in the Army''s Women Cadet Nursing Program.
     On June 18, 1949, Gwen married John Joseph (Wlostowski) Weston in Detroit where they made their home. She spent the next 18 years raising their children. In 1967 Gwen returned to the nursing profession at Grace Northwest Hospital, specializing in obstetrics. After 20 years she began her retirement but continued nursing for her own enjoyment at Grace (Mt. Carmel) Hospital as a prenatal nurse. Her family was important to her as well as her work.
     Gwen moved to Scottsbluff in 2001 to be with her daughter, Karen. They moved to North Platte in 2003 and John joined them in 2005. Gwen will always be remembered as a loving daughter, wife, mother and grandmother, with a perpetual smile. She dedicated her life to nursing with a caring and compassionate heart for all. Gwen will be dearly missed and never forgotten by her family.
     Survivors include her son, Jack (Diane) Weston, of Gaylord, Mich.; her daughter, Karen Weston, and family friend, Linda Morris, both of North Platte; two grandchildren, Emily Weston and Brian Weston (fiancee, Stephanie Gubin); and other family.
     She was preceded in death by her husband; her parents; and brother, Kenneth Protzman.
     Funeral service was at 11 a.m. Feb. 16 at Odean Colonial Chapel with Ned Cooper officiating. Burial was in the Roseland Park Cemetery in Berkley, Mich. Odean Colonial Chapel was in charge of arrangements.
