Lynn was born in Orillia, Ontario on August 27, 1936 to Sterns and Laura Cottreal. She moved to Chase BC in 1953 where she met the love of her life, Bill. After one date he asked her to marry him and 4 days before her 18th birthday they were married in the Anglican Church in Chase. Lynn was a longtime resident of Golden having moved here with her family in 1963.

She loved the Lord with all her heart and soul and was a mighty prayer warrior. Lynn had an open door to all who needed her and their secrets were always safe with her.

Lynn enjoyed reading her Bible, gardening, cooking, baking and canning. She lived for her family and would do anything for them. She was a Mama Bear if anything was about to hurt her kids!

Lynn is survived by her devoted husband of 58 years, Bill. Her son Bob (Vivian) and daughter Sandra (Ron Johnston.); grandchildren Kimberley (Charlie), Bill (Michele), Charles and Brenda (Nick); great grandchildren, Sydnie, Elijah, Mason and Keegan and her brother Roger as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
