Lynda grew up in the tight-knit farming community of Woodford, Ontario. Lynda met Barry at a dance in Sauble Beach and they were dancing together ever since. After marrying Barry in 1967, they moved to Leamington, Ontario where they connected with dear, life-long friends through their community service with the Kinsmen, K40 and Kinette Clubs. Lynda was a congregation member and worked for several years at the Leamington United Church as well as volunteered with the Meals on Wheels program.
Lynda was happiest when she was together with her family. Lynda will be deeply missed by her loving children and grandchildren. Lynda will also be lovingly remembered by extended family and friends.
