Lynnette McGee (née Fraser) died at St. Paul’s Hospital on April 12, 2019 in Saskatoon at the age of 81.
Lynn is survived by son Patrick (Joanne), daughter Valerie (Darren), and daughter-in-law Paulette; grandchildren Patricia, Spencer, Paul, and Michael; step-grandchildren Kelly, Crystal, Thomas, and Sarah; nephews Randy, Garnet, and nieces, Kerry and Holly. She is preceded in death by husband, Harold, son David, and her brother Morley.
Lynn was born on May 4, 1937 in Saskatoon. She was one of a kind! Lynn loved to read and learn, and was especially proud of her Social Work (U of R) and Bachelor of Arts (U of S) degrees. She treasured her grandchildren and gave them the joy of reading and learning. Early in her career, she worked in different social work positions for the Federal and Provincial governments. She finished her career with her dream job at the Saskatoon Public Library where we can all picture her reading to children. She was also proud of her role at the library as a union representative advocating for staff. Lynn enjoyed trips to Hawaii and Las Vegas and always wanted to go back. She loved Tom Jones (“What’s new Pussycat”), ice-cream, and books!
The family is very grateful to Lynn’s friends who visited her while she was at Stensrud Lodge. In addition, we thank the staff of Stensrud Lodge for Lynn’s care. Mom loved and lived by the Dylan Thomas poem “Do not go gentle into that good night”. In lieu of flowers, hug your loved ones. Lynn has requested that no service be held, but a gathering of friends and family will be held at a later date. If Mom were here today reading this, she would say “May I have a copy of that?”
My sincerest sympathy to Lynn’s family.
Your dear mother and I were best friends in high school but unfortunately, as often happens, we lost touch as years passed. I remember her as such a wonderful, loving person and also remember her mother the same. Cherish all the special memories held closely in your hearts.
Lorraine Ceaser (nee Budd)
To Val, Darren and family,
So sorry for your loss.
Love and hugs!
