March 9, 1943 – November 19, 2022
Forever loved. Never forgotten
She is survived by her beloved husband Willard, sister Carroll Ann (Rodney), daughter Patricia, son Robert, grandchildren Amanda, Leigh (Lindsey) and Daniel, great-grandchildren Eve, Abigail, Braedyn, Jackson and Rylee and many nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her parents Fitzroy and Angeline and her brother Michael.
Lynne grew up in Jasper, Alberta where she was an accomplished ski racer in the Rockies and loved the majesty of the mountains and the lakes. The mountains inspired her favorite colours: purple, green and white. Life led her to big cities, new beginnings and eventually to Sylvan Lake where our whole family settled and grew (and still is). She was intelligent and educated on all kinds of subjects. Her iconic library with floor to ceiling, wall to wall bookshelves proved it. She was a true hobbyist and excelled as a crafter, an artist, poet/writer, published author, gardener, seamstress, trombone player, business owner and a culinary powerhouse. She shared her knowledge with family and made every moment magical with her creativity and generous soul. She was dedicated to family and blood did not play a role in who she considered family. She was loved by many as she cared for everyone close to her like kin. She was the best person to talk to and had endless wise words, brilliant ideas and sound advice.
She had a true heart of gold that shone with loyalty and never-ending love. In the loving words of her husband, she was “one helluva gal”.
The family will be having a private memorial as per her wishes but will plan a celebration of her life at a later date.
