Lynne Urkevich


With sadness, Lynne Urkevich, long-time resident of Drayton Valley, has continued her journey with the Lord. She passed away at Drayton Valley Hospital and Care Centre on Saturday, April 2, 2016 at the age of 71 years. With a strong faith, Lynne led by example; she faced every struggle with a positive spirit, great resilience, a forgiving heart, and a smile! Although many, one of Lynne’s strongest qualities was the unconditional love she had for every person who was fortunate to have known her – whether you were family, a close friend or an acquaintance, Lynne could be counted on to share in your joy and in your sorrow.
“Well done, good and faithful servant”
Lynne was truly dedicated to her family and will be extremely missed, yet lovingly remembered by her children, Michelle (Brian) Rathgeber, Darren (Sandra) Urkevich and Christy (Clinton) Geinger; grandchildren, Amy (Will) Pas, Riva (Shaun) Low, Brittany Geinger, Tameka Geinger, Amanda Rathgeber, Kodie (Virginia) Rathgeber, Amber (Chris) Johnson and Chad (Alice) Dumont; 11 great-grandchildren and her sister, Helen Thomas. Warm memories of Lynne will also remain in the hearts of many extended family and friends. Lynne is predeceased by her husband, Mike; grandson, Rodney; brothers, Ray and Roy; sister, Muriel and her parents. With deep appreciation, the family of Lynne wishes to express their gratitude to Dr. VanderMerwe and all the marvellous nurses at Drayton Valley Hospital and Home Care who cared for Lynne and the congregation of Drayton Valley Alliance Church for the love and support shown over the years. In honour of Lynne, memorial contributions may be made directly to the Drayton Valley Health Services Foundation – CT4DV, 4550 Madsen Avenue, Drayton Valley, Alberta T7A 1N8.
