Paper Picture Anderson WynnBorn August 8, 1922 in Dundee, Scotland. Passed away peacefully on February 6, 2016 at the Sun Parlor Home in Leamington after a lengthy struggle with Alzheimer’s. Predeceased by her parents Edward and Mary. Beloved wife of 73 years to Jack and loving mother to Linda (Lorenzo) and Louise (Don). Wynn came to Canada in 1946 as a war bride and very quickly adjusted to her new life. She supported Jack through his university years and when the girls came along made a wonderful home for her family. She will be fondly remembered for her wonderful sense of humour, her kind and caring ways and her dedication to family. She and Jack enjoyed their many travels to Scotland, Italy, France and extensive trips to the American Southwest. The family would like to express its sincere gratitude to the wonderful staff on 3 West at the Sun Parlor Home. Their exceptional care, compassion and kindness gave our family much comfort over the past 10 years and especially in these last few days. We wish to express our sincere thanks to all of mom’s friends and family who visited with her and supported her during her difficult journey. A private family service has been held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Sun Parlor Home Auxiliary (Bus Fund) or a charity of your choice. Cherished memories and online condolences may be shared with the family at www.reidfuneralhome.ca. Arrangements entrusted to Reid Funeral Home, 14 Russell Street, Leamington (519-326-2631).
