Daughter-in-law of Robert and Marion Dixon. Sister-in-law and friend to Dayna (Ted Dodds), Cameron (Elizabeth), and Laurie Dixon. Proud aunt of Bradley (Leanne), Laura (Chip), Chelsea (Vesa), Crystal (Corey), Delia (Andrew), and Dorothy. Great aunt to Maisie, Malcolm, Felix, and Jasper.
Lynne was a mom’s mom, a woman’s woman. No matter who you were, you were a somebody to Lynne. She was an extraordinary woman who loved to decorate, craft, sew, host, design a house, and organize a conference. Lynne made everyone feel like family, encouraging them to move into God’s destiny, and teaching them how to maximize their skills. As a trusted friend, she gave good counsel and ensured that you never left feeling alone. Lynne grew up in a military family, graduated with honours at Rideau High School and headed to Carleton for a Science degree, until she met her future husband at Algonquin College. She then switched to the Lab Technology Course and graduated with honours. She spent a year crossing Canada on a federal health survey, then married Rob and followed him up to Moose Factory for 5 years where she worked at the hospital. Lynne has sewn outfits for her kids, grandkids, newborn babies and children overseas. She has set up libraries in Africa, neighbourhood Bible studies, been a leader of Woman Alive Ottawa, spoken at Christian Women’s Clubs and led women’s ministries for the Billy Graham event in 1998. However, to Lynne, her greatest achievements are her children and grandchildren. Today, Lynne is probably visiting with old friends while sitting at the feet of Jesus.
Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. John 11:25-26
In Lieu of Flowers
Lynne and I have traditionally given to the Canadian Bible Society upon a friend’s death. However, in lieu of flowers we’d appreciate you giving to a charity of your choice.
