March 3, 2023
Surrounded by the love of her family, Lynne passed away after a short illness on March 3, 2023 at the age of 79. She was predeceased by her parents George and Katherine and her sisters Yvonne and Maureen. She is survived by her loving husband George; daughters Leslie (Jim) and April (Cal); grandchildren Ben (Sydney), Scot (Kelsey), Matthias and Kathleena (Mitchell); great-grandchildren Sebastian and Beau; her sisters Jeanette and Patricia (Glen); her brothers Robert (Darlene) and Bruce (Gloria); brother-in-law Brian (Brenda); close friends Bob and Faye; and numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews.
Lynne was born and raised in Regina, SK. She studied Psychiatric Nursing at Valley View Centre in Moose Jaw, SK where she met George. They were married in December of 1962 and just recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. Lynne and George raised their family in Regina where Lynne worked as a Nurse’s Aide at the Wascana Rehabilitation Centre and as a Unit Clerk at the Plains Health Centre.
Lynne put family, both immediate and extended, first and foremost in her life. Lynne played an important role in the lives of her grandchildren with baking, cooking, creating crafts, imaginary play, sleepovers and attending sports and other events in her grandchildren’s lives. Lynne will be remembered for her love of dogs, her amazing cooking, baking, gardening, crocheting, sewing, crafting and for being the best wife, mother, sister, aunt, grandma and friend one could ask for.
Anyone who knew Lynne was blessed to have her in their life. She was a kind and generous person who cared for many people. No task was too big or small. Throughout her life Lynne exemplified qualities such as: a keen sense of humour, a strong value system, acceptance and nurturing of others, integrity, organization, determination and strong work ethic. Over the course of Lynne’s life she faced health challenges and met them with courage and strength, which her family respected and admired. Lynne will be greatly missed by her immediate and extended family, friends and neighbours.
A service will be held in the Summer of 2023 for Lynne to honour her life and legacy. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Regina Humane Society. The family would like to express their gratitude to the staff of the Surgical ICU at the Regina General Hospital for their compassion and wonderful care.
