Evelyn Mary McConnell WILSON (nee: FORD) 1926-2019
Lynn, as she was known by friends & family, was born on July 31, 1926 in Dunfermlin, Scotland, to Elizabeth ("Daisy") FORD & William ("Bill") FORD. She immigrated by ship to Canada in 1930, where she grew up with her parents and brother, Ian.
She met and married John Sumner WILSON (Sr.) and they were blessed with a son, John Sumner WILSON (Jr.) (1947), and a daughter, Terry Lynn EASTERBROOK (nee: Wilson, 1950). Lynn and John raised their children on Crest Dr. in Burnaby, BC. and in 1975 relocated to Sechelt, BC to pursue real estate careers independently. There they built her West Coast inspired dream home with a captivating view of the Trail Islands on Lynnwood Crt, which was named after Lynn by the area's developer. Lynn and John divorced in 1980.
Lynn is survived by her cousin, Mary who still lives in Scotland, her two children John and Terry, her daughter-in-law Wendy, her son-in-law Tom, her grandchildren Anastasia ("Stacey"), Bethlena ("Beth") & Todd (“Lliam"), and her great-grandson, Styles.
Lynn lived an active life, often enjoying the outdoors. She loved tending to her tranquil Japanese garden, challenging herself at golf, playing bridge with friends, adventures boating, travelling abroad and her daily seaside walks. Lynn's laughter and dry wit drew many to befriend her. Living her fullest life filled with laughter and good people will be the example missed most by those left behind.
Lynn passed peacefully in her sleep at 5:40am Saturday, April 27th, 2019 after being lovingly visited by each of her family members days prior.
She also volunteered for many years with the St. Mary’s (Sechelt) Hospital Auxiliary. At her request no service will be held. In leu of flowers donations may be made to the Sechelt Hospital Foundation https://sechelthospitalfoundation.org
