Our beloved Lynda passed away after losing a short battle with cancer.
Lynda was a wonderful wife, mother, sister and grandmother. She will be deeply missed.
Lynda was born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba. She moved to Vancouver in the late 1960’s. The love of her life, daughter Holly, was born in 1972. Lynda and Holly returned to Winnipeg in 1974. Neil met Lynda in 1976. Neil, Lynda and Holly moved to Yellowknife in 1979. Neil and Lynda were married in 1981. The family then moved to the Yukon and returned to Winnipeg in 1987.
Lynda and Neil relocated to Cranbrook in 1991. Lynda fell in love with her new city. She adored the mountains and would refer to them as “her” mountains. Lynda loved all animals and birds. She would often stop to chat with dogs, cats, deer and birds. She called them all “sweety”.
Lynda was predeceased by her mother and father, June and Jack Hunnisett.
Lynda is survived by her husband Neil; daughter Holly (Andrew); sister Shirley (Bill); three stepsons, Blaine (Sue), Shawn (AnnMarie), Neil Jr.; five grandchildren, Alton, Keaton, Emerson, Ella and Josie. She will also be sadly missed by her best friend Susan and Desi the cat.
There will not be a service. A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date in Cranbrook.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The BC Cancer Society.
