After her years in the skies, Gwynda transitioned to a successful career in real estate, where she became a respected agent with Mock Realty in the 1980s. Her intelligence and loving nature made her a trusted advisor to many families as they navigated the important journey of finding their homes. Gwynda's dedication to her clients was matched only by her commitment to her community. Later she worked for Walmart where she met many wonderful people and made many friends.  

A devout and active member of Paran Baptist Church, Gwynda's faith was a cornerstone of her life. She served her church with the same passion she brought to every endeavor, offering her time and talents in various capacities over the years. Her church family will remember her as a guiding light, always ready with a kind word and a helping hand.
