CAROLYN LYNN, of Lethbridge, passed away peacefully at the Edith Cavell Care Centre on Sunday, October 27, 2019 at the age of 80 years.

She is survived by her four daughters: Lorna (Bill) Lazaruk, Kathy Lynn, Eileen (Ian) Colquhoun and Carla (Murray) Parenteau; four grandchildren: Jamie (Dannielle) Lazaruk, Kara (Evan) Beaton, Phoebe Colquhoun, Rory Colquhoun and adopted grandson Micheal Lazaruk. She is also survived by four great- grandchildren Harlynn and Journee Lazaruk and Nova and Veda Beaton. She is also survived by her brother Cameron (Maureen) Laing and sister Elaine (Ian) Sunderland and numerous nieces and nephews.

Carolyn was predeceased by her parents and husband John.

Born on October 21, 1939 to parents Blanche and William Laing in Lethbridge – Carolyn graduated from Lethbridge Collegiate Institute and went on to obtain her teaching certificate in Calgary. Carolyn married John Lynn in 1959 and they would have four daughters – Lorna, Kathy, Eileen and Carla. Carolyn was a proud stay-at-home mom until Carla started school when she then returned to work as a school teacher and later teachers’ assistant for the Catholic Separate School System. Carolyn enjoyed her work in the schools and was especially proud when she taught children whose parents she knew when they were growing up. Carolyn also enjoyed the comradery of the teaching staff and the “Birthday Club” dinners and coffee dates outside of school hours. In her spare time, Carolyn enjoyed working in her garden and cooking for her family including her four grandchildren who always liked to lend a helping hand.

Carolyn enjoyed travelling to visit family – her sister Elaine in Victoria, daughter Carla in Edmonton, daughter Eileen and children in Bolton, Ontario, brother Cameron in Kingston, Ontario and daughter Kathy in Florida and nine summers in California. While in California, Carolyn enjoyed the local beach every morning, walks in the Marina, special days in Malibu, trips to Disneyland and San Diego and to San Francisco and the wineries. She also visited Las Vegas where she took in the shows and even tried her hand at the slot machines. In 2009, Carolyn and Kathy enjoyed an amazing three week tour of New Zealand and Australia.

Later that year, the effects of Alzheimer’s Disease would begin to erode Carolyn’s independence and she was fortunate to have amazing neighbors’ Ila Rae and Jim and John and Todd to assist the family in maintaining her home life and yard. As the disease progressed, Donna Jo and Mary B assisted Kathy in maintaining Carolyn in her home but in the Spring of 2011, Carolyn was moved to Fairmont Extendicare where she received loving care from her primary care giver Maritza and other staff. She was later transferred to Edith Cavell Care Centre where she again received thoughtful care which was extended to her daughters during the time leading up to her death. During her time at Edith Cavell, Mrs. Van Ryan provided Carolyn companionship, reading to her and enjoying music with her. Thanks also to Dr. Cahill and associates at Family Medical Centre in Lethbridge.

At Carolyn’s request no funeral service is planned. If you wish, please make donations to the Alzheimer Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories, 10531 Kingsway Avenue, Edmonton, AB, T5H 4K1.
