Lynn Mary Meta Dunbar


Lynn Mary Meta  Dunbar

(lovingly known as Mom/Grammy/Minnie/Buttons)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lynn Dunbar, age 65, at the DECH on December 6, 2018. She was the daughter of the late Earl and Lillian Myshrall (Polchies) and is predeceased by her sister, Yvonne.

She was an extremely proud member of Kingsclear First Nation, serving in Council, for a number of years. As members of KFN will tell you, she has had a strong and positive commitment to her community. Lynn also loved volunteering at York Manor, especially in the Alzheimer unit.

Lynn is survived by her husband of 45 years (Roger), her two beloved sons Mark (Stephanie) and Ryan (Sarah), the love and light of her life, her granddaughter Lily; sisters Diane Monkhouse (John) and Barb Kelly of Fredericton, Pat McLeod (Bruce) of Saint John, Terri Welch of Vancouver, and many cherished nieces/nephews and great nieces/nephews. Lynn and Roger have an unofficial adopted daughter who is their rock, Stephanie Ratelle.

Family, friends and community meant everything to Lynn. Her home was always welcoming, her love and generosity were boundless and her laughter contagious. Her cooking and baking brought joy, her shopping skills were epic, her opinions and advice always direct and truthful. She was an endless source of stories, traditions, and proverbs and she meant everything to all of us. She will be deeply missed but never forgotten.

The Family will receive visitation at Bishops Funeral Home, 540 Woodstock Rd. during the hours of 2-4 pm and 7-9 pm on Monday, December 10 and a service at St. Anthony’s Roman Catholic Church, 603 Union St. on Tuesday, December 11 at 11:00 am with father Martin Arputham officiating.

For those who wish, the family suggests memorials to the Alzheimer Society, SPCA or to the charity of your choice.
