She is also survived by her four siblings, Margaret Selassie, Jean Clement, Gordon Turner and Jim Turner, and their families. Mary Lynn faced significant health challenges for many years with a positive attitude and dignity that inspired many. Mary Lynn was a graduate of Huron College in 1968, followed by teachers college at Western University. She had a keen mind, an incredible memory and a facility with language that led to her involvement in the Jane Austen Society and her love of difficult word puzzles. She was a member of First Saint Andrew’s United Church, Riverside United and the May Court Club of London. She was generous with her time, and her hospitality was extended to her family and large circle of friends. Mary Lynn made many happy memories at the cottage in Grand Bend and with a wonderful group of friends in Hilton Head, S.C.
