Lynne Carlina Theriault


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.

So sorry for your loss. Just learnt of this when checking internet. We kept in touch haphazardly since I returned to Liverpool, but, I will always cherish the friendship we shared when I lived in Edmonton. We had so many fun times. She introduced me to her lovely family which led to many happy family get togethers. Love to you all x

Hi Lynne’s both professionally and personally. precious family – Though we never met you personally, I did indeed feel as if I knew you as Lynne talked about her family with such love and pleasure. I first met your Mom when we did our Bsc.N together at U of A, Lost contact after that but reconnected again when she began to work at Grant MacEwan. Lynne was amazing to work with and we had many wonderful times together both professionally and personally. She epitomized psychiatric nursing and was a fervent believer in our profession. She was my “comrade in arms” and I will always cherish our time together. I am so very saddened by the news.
Lovingly, Stan and Marilyn

Lynn was a wonderful neighbor, who we met when we moved into Beaumont 5 years ago! She was a friendly, vibrant person who welcomed us so warmly. We looked forward to long chats when she walked her dog and evenings savouring her homemade wine and yummy snacks. We miss her so much, but will cherish the memories! Hugs to her family!!

We remember “G-mom” who was always a welcome presence in our neighborhood and someone who we knew had arrived in her little sports car. So sorry that she left us so young but will always be remembered for her big smile and love for her grandsons.


My condolences to Your family Rob and Renae. Lynn always liked to visit with mom and dad.


Renae and Robin…. your Mom was a very special lady.
I will Always miss my beautiful cousin.
