Dear grandmother of Colin Rennie Jr, Amelia Rankin (Dan Pascary), Nicholas Rankin. In honoring with her wishes, cremation has taken place.
I am so sorry for your loss. Lynn was a great woman. She loved you dearly Amie. Her grandchildren were her most loved and most precious to her. I wish I could have met her husband Ed. When I spoke with her a few years ago, I knew she found her soul mate.
Love you! Your in our hearts and prayers
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. I’m picturing Suzi laughing and enjoying time at a really big pond fishing - and she is happy!
One day, working at McDonalds I hear a laugh. It was a distinct laugh, very load and very…jolly. That laugh belonged to someone I would one day call mom.
I was 15 or 16 when I “joined” your family and between you, Amie and Grams, there were never dull times.
The love you showed for your children and grandchildren was beautiful and fierce, I was privileged to be included. Growing up you were my friend, my 2nd mom and someone who would always lend an ear and offer advice.
For the last 35 years you have kept me laughing. I will miss you so very much.
Until we meet again.
I liked Lynn very much we always had a laugh. Will miss her on my visits in Elliott Lake. Hugs to all. Love you Ed ❤️
Dear Aime and Family,
Sometimes there are no words to express our sorrow. So I will tell you a couple of memories I have of Suzie. My brother Tim and your mom playing cowboys in our yard in Indiana. Another one - your mom putting on her army uniform and looking great when she was an army volunteer at the Toronto barracks. My cousin Suzie was much loved by family and many, many friends. Love, Laurie.
