1920 – 2009

BETHEL – Gwyneth Griffin Bohr, 89, died on July 1. 

She became an Episcopal priest when she was 59. The ministry integrated her life experiences, U.S. Naval officer, personnel officer in a factory, psychiatric social work training, living in India in the 1960s, and perhaps most importantly, marriage and motherhood. She thought of herself as a pioneer, breaking new ground for women.

Gwyneth was beloved by many for her warmth and generosity of heart, her wit and humor.

She is survived by her husband of 63 years, Kenneth Alden Bohr, whose care and devotion sustained her through the very last days of her life; her three daughters, Gretchen Bohr Courage, Katherine Alden Bohr and Sarah Harriet Bohr; as well as two sons-in-law; four grandchildren; a brother-in law; two sisters-in law; a niece and nephew; several great-nieces and great-nephews; and a cadre of wonderful dear friends.
