1 East 8 DEATH NOTICES i I '4 1 MCELROY, LYNN (MCCARTHY) Born 24 May 1943 in Regina, Saskatchewan Died 13 October 2008 in Victoria, B.C. A saint in our midst Lynn's family is grieved to announce the passing of their adored Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Daughter, and Aunt. Lynn is survived by her sons, Scott and Glen (Barbara); grandsons, David, Marc, and Ronan; parents Patrick and Edythe McCarthy; sisters and brother, Merle (Bob), Sharon (Rudy), and Vern; and numerous nieces and nephews and cousins. Lynn's first profession was that of an elementary school teacher, which she enioyed for 16 years in many small towns throughout Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. When she moved with her family to Victoria in 1986, she dedicated herself to improving the lives of others through her work with the Victoria Association of Community Living.

Lynn's family especially wish to thank the residents and staff of McRae home for all the ioy they brought to her life. In her "spare Lynn enioyed her two passions: lawn bowling and gardening. She was a member of the Vic West Lawn Bowls Club and held many provinciat and national titles in the sport. As a National Lawn Bowls team member, she represented Canada at the World Indoor Championships in Belfast, Ireland (twice), the Asia Pacific Games In Australia, and the 2006 Commonwealth Games, also in Australia. When not working, bowling, or travelling, Lynn could also be found tending her flower and vegetable gardens.

And let us not forget her discreet, but frequent forays to the Casino, whether here in Victoria (especially during these last few months) or the 21 trips with her Dad to Reno (duty-free rum always a must on the return home)! To appreciate beauty; To find the best in others; To give one's self; To leave the world a little better, Whether by a healthy child, A garden patch, Or a redeemed social condition; To have played and laughed with enthusiasm, And sung with exultation; To know even one life has breathed easier Because you have Lynn's quick smile and laughter will be missed by her family, those she cared for, played and worked with, as well as her many friends and acquaintances here and around the world. A thousand thanks to Dr. Bernstein at the Royal Jubilee hospital cancer clinic, and to the nurses who attended her regularly at home In her last few weeks. Lynn was so confident about their care, which gave her much reason to continue to live life fully right up to her last few days, despite pain and declining strength. A celebration of her life was held Saturday, 18 October at the Vic West Lawn Bowls Club.

In keeping with her wishes, there were no speeches, but plenty of her own wine (another little hobby). The Interment in Riverside Memorial Gardens In Regina was private. The family owe a dept of gratitude on that occasion to Sr Elaine Welsgerber, osu, for her Inspiring words embracing the Universal Energy of which we are all part and which sustains us; There Is no pain In the graveyard or the voice Whispering In the tombstones; "Reioice, It was also Lynn's wish that donations In her name be made to Community Living Victoria, 3861 Cedar Hill X-Road, Victoria BC V8P 2M7 (tel. 250-477-7231, ext 39), in lieu of flowers or gifts.
