Obituary

Gwen E. Healey, age 80, of Dubuque, died peacefully in the company of family on
Thursday, August 22, 2019.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00 a.m.
Friday, August 30, 2019 at St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church. Internment will be in
Mt. Olivet Cemetery. Proceeding the rosary at 2:30 pm, a visitation will be held on
Thursday, August 29 th from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm at St. Joseph the Worker church.

Gwen was born on February 10, 1939 in Luxemburg, Iowa, the daughter of Nicholas
and Anna (Naber) Gaul. She grew up in Dyersville, Iowa, where she met and married
her beloved husband of 57 years, Carl Healey, on November 26, 1959. The couple
moved to Dubuque that same year and Gwen began her career as a Nurse. She was
employed with Xavier Hospital until its closing and then with Mercy Health Center,
retiring in 2001, when her new favorite phrase became, “I can do that, I’m off tomorrow.”

Gwen was a charter member of St. Joseph the Worker Parish and involved in virtually
every aspect of the parish. She was a member of Mother’s Club, Birthright and many
other organizations, as well as Catholic Daughters, where she was serving as
President. She loved attending her grandchildren’s programs and activities, shopping,
golf cart rides, going out to lunch, and fussing over her two cats Silky and Chrissy.

Gwen is survived by her children, Cathy (Steve) Schlueter, Steve (Rhonda) Healey both
of Dubuque, IA and Mike (Penny) Healey of Tampa, FL; her grandchildren Jessica
Healey, Lindsy (Marty) Hurm, Jenny (Jack) Flanigan, Katie (Tyler) Thomas and Christy
Healey; 4 great grandsons; her siblings Les (Debbie) Gaul of Ethel, MO, Karl Gaul of
Worthington, IA, and his close friend Joan, Cyril (Paula) Gaul of Schaumburg, IL, Mark
(Mary) Gaul of Worthington, IA, Mary Lou (Ivan) Meyers of Bellevue, NE, Ruth (Darel)
Hilkin of Dubuque, IA and Julie (Clark) Bradley of Marion, IA; her sister-in-law Cheryl
Gaul of Worthington, IA and her dear friend Rita Reicher of Dubuque, IA.

Gwen was preceded in death by her husband Carl on February, 6, 2017; her parents;
two brothers Bernard and Leon and two sisters Rose and Peggy; and five in-laws.

A Gwen Healey memorial fund has been established.

The Healey family wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you to the first responders and the
ER personnel at Mercy Health Center and to Egelhof, Siegert & Casper Funeral Home
and Crematory, 2659 JFK Rd. who are taking care of arrangements.
