Gwendolyn M. Cloud (nee Vannett), age 85, of Powell, died on Wednesday, November 25, 2020, at Willow Brook Christian Home in Columbus, with her family by her side. Born in Columbus, Gwen was the daughter of the late Glenn E. Vannett and Cleo Brentlinger Vannett. She was a graduate of Linden-McKinley High School. Gwen was preceded in death by her husband of 58 years, Jim Cloud, who died in 2014. Her brothers, Doyle and Robert, also preceded her in death. Gwen is survived by her daughters Pam (Keith) Thomas of Frederick, Maryland, and Stephanie (Mike) Scarbrough of Westerville, Ohio. She is also survived by her grandson, James Scarbrough. Her “Texas” nephews, Rick (Charlotte) Vannett, and Ron (Nancy) Vannett and their families were very dear to her. A devoted mom and grandma, Gwen was a homemaker who spent most of her years caring for others. She volunteered for many years as a leader for both of her daughters’ Camp Fire groups, then later worked in the Council Office of Camp Fire in Columbus. Gwen loved being with her family and her many friends. The friends from her Shrewsbury Road Bridge club gathered monthly for over forty years and were very special to her. She enjoyed playing cards and was tough to beat at Scrabble. Gwen was a wonderful cook and baker. She was well known for the platters of cookies and fudge that she loved to share at Christmas. She also enjoyed watching Buckeye football games. She was a member of Riverside United Methodist Church. Due to the current pandemic, no public services or visitation will take place at this time. The family hopes to gather for a Celebration of her life at a later time. In lieu of flowers or gifts, the family prefers that contributions in her memory be made to Willow Brook Christian Home by visiting www.willow-brook.org/about-us/giving or to the OhioHealth Foundation Riverside Neuroscience Center at https://foundation.ohiohealth.com/. RUTHERFORD FUNERAL HOME AT POWELL is handling all arrangements.
