Gwendolyn (Green) Leuch, age 88, of Council Bluffs, passed away April 16, 2023.


Gwen was born September 23, 1934 to parents, Victor and Mildred (Roden) Green. She graduated from Abraham Lincoln High School in 1953, and attended Parsons College in Fairfield, Iowa for one year. She married Donald Leuch on October 30, 1955.


Her husband's work moved them from Council Bluffs to Atlantic, Spencer and Sioux City, Iowa.
