Gwendolyn Churchill Obituary

Gwendolyn Elayne Lewis Churchill, 77, passed away peacefully on November 30, 2023.

She was raised in Warrenton, VA, daughter of the late William H. Lewis, Sr. and Clara Washington Lewis. A 1967 graduate of Virginia State College (now University), she married Ellington E. Churchill on August 19, 1967. From this union, they bore and raised three beautiful children, Ellington Jr. (EC), Michele, and John, and both worked as educators in the Anne Arundel County Public School System. Gwendolyn is survived by her husband of 56 years, Ellington, their children, Ellington Jr. (Shareese), Michele, and John (Angela); their grandchildren, Jina, Malik, Jonathan, Alana, Aiden, Isabella, and Avery; her siblings, A. Lorraine Jones, Linda Lewis, William Lewis, Jr., sister-in-law Shirley Churchill Wood, as well as a host of cousins, nieces, nephews, and loved ones. She is preceded in death by her beloved sister, Julia Lewis-Wai.

During her decades as an elementary school teacher, she was a mentor to many, even volunteering in the classroom after retirement. She loved her church family and spent many hours volunteering in her home church, Metropolitan United Methodist Church, in Severn, MD. In her spare time, she loved all things related to nature, gazing at the stars, and spending time with friends and family. She will be dearly and deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

Family will receive friends on Saturday, December 16, 2023, from 10 am until 11 am service time at First Baptist Church, 39 Alexandria Pike, Warrenton, VA, 20186.  Rev. Dr. Dwayne Brown will officiate and Rev. Vinicent Holland will deliver the eulogy.
