<div itemprop="description">It is with great sadness that we announce Lynn's recent passing at the age of 94. <br> <br>Having grown up in New Haven, Connecticut, Lynn arrived in Montreal in her early 20's to study neurological nursing, at one time serving under none other than Dr. Wilder Penfield. Rather than returning to the States to teach, she opted to remain in the city she fell in love with and to be with the man she too fell in love with. She and Ernie remained married for 66 years until his passing in 2015. Together they bore four children: Larry (Yvonne), Jeff (Joan), Nancy (Neil), and Andy (Murielle) as well as eight grandchildren (Michael, Matthew, Kevin, Dominique, Jennifer, Jesse, Jody, and Tyler) and one greatgrandchild, Logan. <br> <br>Lynn and Ernie left the congested confines of the city in the mid-50's for the greener pastures of Beaconsfield where they remained for the rest of their lives. Having sacrificed her career ambitions, Lynn poured all of her energies into her family and a variety of volunteer endeavours including Christ Church Beaurepaire, the Beta Sigma Phi sorority, the Beaconsfield Library, and the Girl Guides of Canada where she served as a leader and rose to become a Commissioner. <br> <br>She travelled extensively, enjoyed a glass of wine, and was passionate about gardening and baseball. An avid Expos fan, her final road trip back in 2017 was one which took her to Cooperstown, New York, to see Tim Raines enshrined in the Hall of Fame. Like Raines, she was a rock. Her departure leaves a huge hole in the lives of those to whom she bestowed her wisdom and strength of character. <br> <br>Funeral services will be held, and notifications sent, when restrictions are lifted.</div>
