They were the anchor of the family of four children, Joyce Stevens and husband John now living in Christiansburg, Jim Pieper and wife Sharon in Jacksonville, Florida, Christy Wente` in Roanoke, and Fred Pieper who pre-deceased his parents. Gigi will also be lovingly remembered by her eight grandchildren, fourteen great-grandchildren, and by her special care-giver and many friends. Gwendolyn is adoringly described as “ a true lady of grace with a song in her heart.” She has touched many lives and has been a beautiful role model for those who follow in her footsteps.
