Thanks to the loving care and unwavering dedication of her family, she was able to live out her final weeks at home, surrounded by those she loved, and who loved her most. As a respected elementary teacher, Lynda mentored young teachers and offered students encouragement, guidance and support, giving them confidence and making a difference in their lives. Much of her success was due to her zest for life, determination, optimism and compassion that she brought to all her endeavours. She actively sought new Friends and cultivated lifelong Friendships. We will remember her in so many ways for all that we shared - the laughter and conversations, the summers at the lake, the winters on the slopes, the vacations and parties, the hugs and smiles, the moments full of love and hope, the triumphs and challenges that made up her meaningful and cherished life.
