Lyn grew up in Sydney, Nova Scotia, and after graduating from Mount Allison University moved West to pursue a career in Montreal and Toronto.

Lyn met her husband, Richard, in 2002 and there was an immediate bond as two Maritimers living many years in the big city.
Lyn will always be remembered for her constant loyalty to family and friends: first and foremost her three children who were the pride of her life.
She also immediately embraced Richard's sons as family and she was well loved by all. Lyn was passionate about her beloved Siamese cats, golden retrievers, and horses.

Lyn always saw the good in others and shared her enthusiasm for life and living with all. A celebration of life will be held at a future time TBD.
