After a 3 year battle with illness that saw her never lose her love for life or her positive outlook, Lynda Sinclair passed away in the morning hours of Sept. 8 surrounded by her family.

While husband Ian has lost his best friend (and lifelong dance partner), he is blessed by the 42 wonderful years they had together. Her 2 amazing children, Mark (Debbie) and Stephanie (Derek) have lost a cherished ‘WorldBoss’ and mentor. Lynda’s guidance will continue to steer them through life’s rough waters. Lynda was ‘B.G.’ (Best Gramma Ever!!) to Juliette who was Lynda’s fuel to battle through these last few difficult months. She will be missed too by her ‘baby’ brother Gordie and her Aunt Hazel.

As many have mentioned, Lynda’s radiant, infectious smile brightened every room she entered and rubbed off on everyone she came in contact with. That smile will now make the stars in the sky a whole lot brighter. Lynda had 2 main passions in life… her family and travel (so you can imagine how crazily wonderful family vacations were!!). She has excelled at both and we are all the better for having her in our lives. The family invites all who have known Lynda through school, Drum Corp., church, neighbours, work life, etc. to join us to reflect upon how she made the world a better place and wish her Bon Voyage as she goes to prepare our future 5 star accommodations in the clouds!!

Visitation will be at Paul O’Connor Funeral Home, 1939 Lawrence Ave. E. on Sunday September 13 from 1 – 4 PM & 6 – 8 PM. *** Please respect the fact that only a limited number of friends can enter the building at any one time. A Funeral Mass will be held at Precious Blood Parish, 1737 Lawrence Ave E, Scarborough, on Monday September 14th at 10:30 AM. Interment is at Pine Hills Cemetery. Following, join the family for a Celebration of Lynda’s Impact on Life at Bluffers Park Marina Restaurant, 7 Brimley Rd. Scarborough. If desired, donations may be made to Hearth Place Cancer Support Centre in Oshawa or Covenant House in Toronto. The funeral mass will be available by Live Stream through the website of Precious Blood Parish http://preciousblood.ca/

Lynda was always a positive force in any room. Thinking back no one seemed to care more than her and be as positive as her. At a difficult time for the industry its an immeasurable loss for the family, we're thinking of you and cherish every memory!

I was so sad to hear of Lynda's passing. I am the General Manager at Travel Counsellors in Ireland and we met during her time working with the company in Canada. She was full of life and as we say in Ireland - "great craic" (fun!). One of the memorable conferences was in Marbella, Spain - such laughs!

My heartfelt sympathy to her family and friends. She died on my birthday, so she will be in my thoughts on that day each year.

With deep sympathy.

I always remember Lynda as a warm, fun-loving woman. A great listener. She was someone you could count on for living up to her word. At travel conferences she would always be up dancing and inviting others to join in. My sincerest condolences to the Sinclair family.

I first met her when she flew into Halifax to interview me for TC. I was in the first few to join. When she left TC it was difficult to continue so I contacted her and she went back to Vision along with me and more of her girls. She worked very hard for us and pushed us to do better. She was a true leader and will always be remembered in my heart. I had hoped one day to return home and work again under her. A beautiful lady with a smile that lit up a room but underneath was a tiger ready to fight for us. Miss her, my condolences to all that her loved her.

I meet Lynda years ago at a travel function we spoke like old friends, like we had known each other for years.. She express her excitement that her daughter in law was coming from Jamaica, and that she was going to be getting Authentic Jamaican food... I cherish the time we spent together and her warm embrace and Her weekly jokes..

Dear Ian and Family,
My condolences are to you and your entire family.
Lynda will be missed by all of us. During the 15 years we worked together, she always came to my office and shared stories and pictures about her family and travel.
She defiantly had a tremendous impact on the travel industry and shared a lot of her passion with all of us.
Thinking about you and your family during this very difficult time.

Dear Ian, Mark, Debbie, Stephanie and Derek,
We are so heartbroken to hear about your loss. Lynda always came into the office with a huge smile on her face and she always made us smile as well. She was more than a patient, she was a friend. We would always have lovely chats about where she travelled and where she was going and she always updated us on what everyone was doing. We wish we could be with you and comfort you. We will miss her. Our sincere condolences to all of you. May you be comforted by the wonderful memories you have made.

Ian, Stephanie, and Mark - I was so sorry I couldn't be with you. (I didn't drive down as allowable numbers so limited.) However, I watched the livestream of Lynda's funeral online. (Stephanie Anevich, your words were beautiful. Thank you!) Lynda hired me at Travel Counsellors, straight from an actuarial career, and as my husband Bill reminded me last night, I was so excited to meet someone so positive and enthusiastic about her work, and her encouragement of me to take big steps. She and I both moved to Vision, as you know, and when she returned to her home at Vision, scores of independent advisors followed her lead. She had been my mentor, my cheerleader, and a dear friend. I will miss her greatly. Hugs to the entire Sinclair family, and thank you for sharing her with us. You all have a bright shining star guiding you from above. And you just know she'll have a twinkle in her eye, a broad smile, and a glass of champagne in hand. Love, Sheila

Dear Ian and family

Lynda will be missed by so many people including myself. Her strength and love was so apparent in everything and everyone she touched. The world is a much better place because she was in it. She always talked about her family and how lucky she was. Her memory will be kept alive and we will think of her dancing in Heaven looking down on all of us with that beautiful smile she had for everyone.
