May 5, 1950 – Durban, Natal, South Africa
June 3, 2019 – Calgary, Alberta
With great sadness we announce the passing of Lynette Pauline Payne on Monday, June 3, 2019.
Lynette embraced family, friends and life with passion, energy and a generosity of spirit. Her creative soul was expressed through her extraordinary cooking, baking, pottery, decorating, gardening, personal style and so much more. Lynette was born in South Africa and immigrated to Canada in 1981. Lynette loved her adopted country, and would often say she was more Canadian than the Canadians. She and her husband spent five years in Singapore and travelled the world extensively. She cherished every minute she spent with her seven grandsons. She loved the time she spent with her various circles of friends and particularly loved the times she spent at Mara Lake. Lynette faced her lengthy twelve-year cancer battle with courage, determination and grace. She was a fierce fighter who never gave up and lived life to the fullest.
Lynette is survived by her husband Boyd Payne, her sons, Garth (Lisa) James and Clinton (Ashley) James; sisters, Florence (Graham) Dyer, Gale (Ernie) Lambert; brother Jim (Des) Evans, grandchildren, Wyatt, Jared and Jesse, Elijah and Grayson, Zach and Carter along with nieces and nephews. Extended family includes Dan (Daylon) Payne, Josh Payne, Cathy (Brett) Anderson. Lynette is predeceased by her mother Natalie and father Jim.
Lynette, you are loved and will be missed.
