A life well lived, filled with family and the most wonderful friends. Lynne enjoyed a career with HSBC in banking, and had a retirement filled with pastimes such as gardening, reading, Thai chi, stained glass and dragon boating. Lynne travelled the world during the course of her life, with her life-long friend, Anne Robertson. Lynne was a dog lover, and she adored the dachshund breed. She had five dogs over her lifetime, Fritz, Samantha, Scarlett, Tara, and Katie.  Lynne enjoyed spending time with family and friends and this always took place over great food and good wine.
