Still, Lynn Phillipa
We are sad to announce that Lynn passed away peacefully at home on Thursday, January 9, 2020 surrounded by her family. Daughter of the late Phillip and Ethel Ford. Lynn leaves behind her husband of 36 years Gary and sons Michael and Christopher. In addition to her brother, Michael, there are nieces and nephews in Canada, UK and Denmark.
Lynn was born on December 29, 1953 in Hendon, London, England. After growing up in Hockley, she came to Canada where she met her future husband Gary at Atlas Alloys. She never stopped moving forward and improving herself. Lynn spent many years in the office furniture industry first at Kinetics and then Envirotech. When some are planning retirement, Lynn began a career in real estate. The last 7 years were the most satisfying to her professionally. She closed her last deal in July, 2019. While she enjoyed her career success, it was third in priority behind family and volunteer work. Lynn was the driving force in our family, she was a role model for her sons. Nothing made her prouder than getting positive comments about her boys. Lynn also enjoyed hiking and camping.
Lynn’s community work included reading to children at school, food drives for the Compass, Leader 1st Clarkson Scouts, Registrar Clarkson Hockey Association, President Lorne Park SS Parent Council, President Whiteoaks Lorne Park Community Association, President Clarkson BIA and numerous times Manager of Hockey and Soccer teams.
The family would like to thank Eiriena and Drs. Perry and Sahgal of the Odette Cancer Centre, and Dr. “T” from Credit Valley Hospital. We are indebted to the PSWs whose care made it possible for Lynn to remain at home.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Wellspring Birmingham Gilgan House or the Odette Cancer Centre at Sunnybrook.
