She was a devoted hockey mom, and in later years enjoyed watching her grandchildren, where you could hear her hooting, hollering, and cheering away. She thoroughly enjoyed her bingo and casino games. She loved socializing with family, friends, and her colleagues. As an only child, Lynda became everyone’s special sister. She will be dearly missed by her cousins.
