Obituary of Lynn Walker

Ethel Linda “Lynn” Walker, 71 years, of Strathmore, AB passed away peacefully with family by her side on May 12, 2022 in Calgary, AB.

Lynn was born in Calgary on March 31, 1951 to Abe & Lidie Walker. Shortly after her birth, Lynn’s mother Lidie passed away. Lynn went to live with Auntie Marion and Uncle Pete Westerson and was raised with their family in Calgary, AB. From a young age, Lynn expressed a deep love for the Lord. She graduated from High School in 1969 and continued on studying to graduate as a Lab Technician.

Lynn was married and had two children: Taya in 1974 and Travis in 1975. She raised her children in Calgary and in 2000 she moved to Strathmore, AB.  This move brought her to a smaller community, and closer to the Walker Families. She has always been an active member of the churches she attended and served others in the community around her. She worked in various healthcare roles during her career before she transitioned to Family Community Support Services in 2011.

Lynn can be described as a life-long learner and artist. She took many courses on a variety of topics and developed her skills in numerous art forms– photography, quilting, painting etc. She had an incredible green thumb - any houseplant in her care thrived!

Since 2016 Lynn has had various health issues. She was courageous and maintained a positive “what can I learn from this” attitude. She continued to live a life of adventure, travelling outside Canada when she could and enjoying new experiences right here in Alberta. Her life was lived with purpose and intention, much joy and laughter.  Her wisdom, analytical mind and sincere friendship will be missed. She was an inspiration to many.

Lynn will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by her brother Gordon (Eileen) Walker of Strathmore, sister in law Joyce (Ernest) Walker of Strathmore, cousins, nieces and nephews, great and great, great nieces and nephews, close friends and work colleagues. Her beloved dog, Shamus will miss her cuddles and companionship dearly.

Lynn was predeceased by her daughter Taya (2021) and son Travis (2013); her siblings: Ernest Walker, Dolly (Bill) Nicholls; parents: Abe & Lidie Walker and Marion & Pete Westerson; aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Special thank yous to the Intensive Care Unit staff of the South Calgary Campus Hospital for their exceptional empathy and kindness towards Lynn and her family.
