MARGARET (LYNN) SINCLAIR
Born May 15, 1950
Upon losing her son in 1994, Lynn struggled with depression. She found comfort and peace at times but was never able to fully extricate herself from the inner chaos that was partially hidden to those around her and which medicine could not cure, counsellors could not quiet and our affection could not adequately soothe. In the end, despite her courage, the disease was incurable.
Her spirit is carried on by her son Brian (Lisa), stepchildren: Josh (Ellie), Brad (Alyssa) and Kelly, grandchildren: McKenna, Ryker, Joel, Jonah and Biden, sister Gail and her beloved dog Cece. Lynn was predeceased by her son Michael (Mike), father Stan and mother Bernice.
Lynn was born, grew up and lived in Winnipeg before moving to BC in 1995. Lynn will always be remembered for her many stories accompanied by her contagious laugh, her vast wisdom and knowledge of many topics, her kind and gentle demeanour, her always perfect red hair and polished look, her talent for sewing and interior design and her many euphemisms that never failed to make us laugh.
A cremation has taken place, due to public health orders a reception will take place at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Canadian Mental Health Association
If love could have saved you,
you would have lived forever.

Condolences & Memories (3 entries)
Brian and family, so very sorry to read about the passing of your beautiful mom. We had a lot of good times with her at Gull Lake many years ago. May she rest in peace now. - Posted by: ROY AND CAROL ANNE GABE (friend) on: Apr 18, 2021
I met Lynn through through her sister Gail, who was married to my brother Tom. I recall that she was always a lot of fun to be with, with a wide smile and infectious laugh. The loss of her son shocked our entire family. I wish she will find the peace so deserved. - Posted by: Andrew Koster (friend) on: Apr 17, 2021
My heart goes out to all of Lynn’s immediate and extended families. She was a dear friend of mine whose memories go way back to our friendship born in the 80’s when we met and spent time together through our love of fitness. Time, circumstances and distance resulted in our losing touch with each other. When she came to visit family in Winnipeg we often met over lunch or dinner to get caught up, laugh and reminisce. I was honoured to have shared many times with her when she moved back here for a year. She was a troubled soul who experienced much tragedy in her life. We talked, I listened as she shared her struggles within herself. She was so courageous and sought out so many ways to help herself. She loved her family, worried about Brian a lot. She loved spending time with McKenna and loved her dearly. It is too bad that she decided to move back to BC as she was just getting to know her grandson, Ryker. I will miss her so much. She was a beautiful person, outside and inside. She even looked beautiful while everyone around in the fitness class was wilted and sweating. Rest In Peace, my friend. Love, Lynda - Posted by: Lynda Jones (Friend) on: Apr 17, 2021
