FLETCHER, Marilyn Margaret "Lynn"
June 7, 1929 - May 29, 2019
"To live in hearts we leave behind, is not to die".
Our loving mother Marilyn (Lynn) Margaret Fletcher, a long-time resident of Huntsville has passed away peacefully with her family by her side, just shy of her 90th birthday at Fairvern Nursing Home in Huntsville. Born in 1929 in Toronto to Ken and Bea Bays, Lynn went on to study nursing and became a dental assistant. She was married to our father, Robert J. K. Edwards in 1954 who passed away in 1980. Lynn is lovingly remembered by her husband of 45 years, Patrick Walter Fletcher and her children, Sharon (Peter), Susan (Steven) and Grant (Marie) and her step-children, Angela (Tom), Patricia (Doug), Tim, and Rob (Joanne). Lynn will be fondly remembered by her nine grandchildren that she was extremely proud of, Christine (Adam), Sarah, Stephen (Donni), Jennifer (Jason), Jason (Cara), Shannon (Nick), Charlene, Brock (Michelle), and Victoria and her seven great grandchildren.
In 1973 Pat purchased the Big East River Motel and invited his fiancée Lynn to move from Toronto to Huntsville to get married and run the business. After 7 successful years, the motel was sold and the couple took on their next entrepreneurial adventure, by moving to town and purchasing a property on Brunel Road, for their business, Heritage House (Antiques & Gifts). After running this business successfully for the next 12 years, Pat and Lynn semi-retirement but still pursued their passion for antiques, travel and summers at the family cottage. They were both very active in the community with Rotary, Probus Club, Club 55, and the duplicate bridge club. Mom especially loved doing makeup and sewing costumes for the Rotary plays, as well as, crocheting, garage sailing, baking, gardening and being with her many friends. She was a volunteer with the hospital auxiliary at the Huntsville Memorial Hospital for over 35 years.
Family and friends were Mom and Pat's passion and delight. She loved to host and entertain and held countless family gatherings to our ever growing family. Mom and Pat loved to travel, taking cruises and going to Florida every winter. They made wonderful memories and lifelong friends there.
We will all truly miss her.
"In life, we loved you dearly, in death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place, no one else will ever fill."
Cremation has taken place and it was our Mom's wish that there be no service. Donations can be made in her name to the Fairvern Nursing Home. We would like to thank the staff at Fairvern and Chartwell for their kindness.
Cremation has taken place. At Lynn's request no services will be held.
