In 1956 Lynne moved to Manitoba to train as a nurse but left to get married and raise a family. In 1968 that marriage broke up and she moved to BC with her three kids and Andy, forming what would prove to be a lifelong loving commitment. In 1971 she completed training as a LPN and began working in Royal Columbian Hospital, switching to Unit Clerking about 1980, retiring in 2001. Raised a Catholic, Lynne returned to the church in the late ‘seventies, was a member of CWL and performed volunteer duties as “greeter” for a number of years. Lynne’s hobby during the ‘eighties and ‘nineties was creating beautiful petit point, a form of canvas embroidery. What she enjoyed even more was being a grandmother and great grandmother. She played a significant role in helping raise her grandchildren and great grandchildren when they came along. She made the world a brighter place for all who knew her. Funeral Mass will be held at St Clare of Assisi Catholic Parish, 2888 Delahaye Drive, Coquitlam, at 11 am, Tuesday, November 20.
