MARC, Lynda Jean
October 28, 1934 – October 4, 2019
Lynda passed away peacefully on Friday October 4th with Jacques, her husband of 64 years at her side. During the past few months she endured great pain and the family takes solace in the fact that she no longer suffers
She will be sorely missed by husband Jacques, daughter, Deborah, sons Jacques (Jeanette) and Kerry, grandsons Jason, Justin, Jordan, James and Trevor, granddaughter Natassja, brother Richard Williams (Karen) and her many lifelong friends.
Lynda was born and raised in the Comox Valley. After graduating from Courtenay High School, she went to Normal School in Victoria to obtain her teachers certificate. During this time she met Jacques. They married on April 8, 1955 and moved to Sayward where Jacques worked for MacMillan Bloedel’s Kelsey Bay Division. Lynda taught school for 3 years. They spent 10 years there and all 3 children were born during this period. Jacques was transferred to Kennedy Lake Division and they moved to Ucluelet for the next 5 years. In 1969 Jacques was transferred to Shawnigan Lake Division and they moved to Duncan where they put down deep roots for the past 50 years.
Lynda was a wonderful kind soul with a big heart, warm smile and great sense of humour. She loved the theatre and music, singing in a choir for many years and helping with the annual music festival. She regularly played bridge with her many friends and she loved dogs. Lynda loved flowers and took a floral arrangement course. She was very artistic and spent hours each year making calendars with photos for relatives and friends. She helped Jacques with his beekeeping activities, labelling jars, making candles and other crafts for the Chaos Market. She enjoyed garage saling and browsing markets for interesting items. She loved stickers and emoticons and, did we say — she loved dogs! Her daughter had several dogs over the years and Lynda referred to them as granddogs. Family was everything to Lynda. She especially enjoyed the annual trips to Mt. Washington, Cortes Island, Hornby Island or Harrison Hot Springs plus days in Tofino and at Lake Cowichan.
The family wishes to thank Dr. Rimmer and the nursing staff of the Cowichan District Hospital for their kindness and care they gave Lynda during her stay there.
A Celebration of Life will be held at H W Wallace Crematorium & Burial Centre, 5285 Polkey Rd, Duncan B.C. at 2 pm on November 2nd. Please stay for refreshments afterwards and share some memories!
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Arthritis Society or United Way would be appreciated
