Gretchen Michelle Wean of Edgartown died unexpectedly on Dec. 9.

She was born in Fort Belvoir, Va., on Jan. 30, 1973.

Gretchen was a master hairstylist and owner of A Hair Affair Salon in Edgartown. She also practiced and taught yoga. She had a great love of the ocean, her many pets, beloved friends and family, but most of all her children. She had a bright spirit, a laugh and a smile that lit up the room.

She was predeceased by her mother Lynn Enright. She is survived by her sons James and Justin Clark, her fiancé Alan Matchem on the Vineyard and her father Wade Wean and many cousins, aunts and uncles in Virginia.

A private family service was previously held in Virginia.

A celebration of life for her Vineyard family and friends will be held on Saturday, Jan. 12, at 1 p.m. at the Portuguese American in Oak Bluffs. Please bring a dish and memories to share. There will be live music and a deejay.
