Gretchen Wagner McDowell

Gretchen Wagner McDowell passed away peacefully on June 2, 2013, at the age of 51. Gretchen was born on Dec.11, 1961, in New Orleans, La., and graduated from Fort Walton Beach High School in 1979.

Although Gretchen had many achievements in her life, perhaps her greatest gift was her ability to engender enormous love and respect from those with whom she worked. Her Bud and Alleyʼs family, including owner Dave Rauschkolb, supported Gretchen during her valiant fight with cancer.

Gretchen is preceded in death by her father, Vernon Leslie Wagner, Jr.
