It is with great sadness that we announce that in the early hours of Tuesday, July 30, 2019, Lynne Carlina Theriault (nee Church) of Beaumont, Alberta passed away after a short but fierce battle with Cancer. She was 76.
Throughout her life, Lynne modelled courage and tenacity, taking the world head on and made a powerful impact on all those she met across the world and taught through her career as a nurse, teacher and consultant.
Most importantly, Lynne left her love in the hearts and memories of her family and friends. Lynne was pre-deceased by her parents Elise and Tommy Church, and leaves behind her sister Brenda (Dave), her son Rob (Evelyn), her daughter Renae (Mark) and her grandchildren Dylan (Melissa), Ryley (Olivia), Austin (Jehna), Clinton (Rachel) and Tristen.
True to form, Lynne requested that while there will be no formal funeral, there will be a family gathering in celebration of Lynne’s life at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, Lynne has asked that those who wish, make a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society in her name.
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning’s hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.
