Lynn was born on May 25, 1928 to Jean (John) François Wickenden andCatherine (Annie) Eliza French and named Jocelyn Anne. She was the2nd child in a family that eventually included 5 daughters (Jean,Jocelyn, Martha, Harriet and Alice) and one son (John). She grew upin Three Rivers in a house that she remembered and loved for the restof her life.

After attending Stanstead College in the Eastern Townships, Lynn beganteaching in Lachute, where she met a dashing young ex-RCAF pilot,James K. Watson. Married on September 19, 1953, they made their homein Hawkesbury, Ontario, and had three children: Ken (1954), Dougie(1956) and Mary (1961). Tragically, Dougie drowned in 1959.

In 1965, Jim was transferred to Montreal and the Watson family movedto Pointe Claire where Lynn made many lifelong friends. As music hadalways been a love in her life, she joined Sweet Adelines and sangbass with them for many years. Lynn also became a parishoner at St.John the Baptist Anglican Church and became very involved in manyparish activities.

Early in 1959, Lynn and Jim bought a piece of property on Lac desSucreries in the Laurentians. Going up to “Camp” became a family love.Summer and winter, many weekends and holidays were spent there overthe ensuing decades, both as a family, and with many friends. For along time, Mum did all the cooking on a woodstove – and turned outmany fantastic meals that family and many friends remember fondly.They were very happy years.

By the early ‘80s, Ken and Mary had both left home, and life began tosettle into a slightly altered pattern. Ken married Pat, and moved tothe Yukon, and Mary moved to Edmonton, and then to Jasper. Mum begantaking trips to see them – sometimes with Dad – sometimes on her own.When Ken and Pat moved first to Timmins and then to Elgin, Ontario,Mum didn’t have quite so far to go to see them, but then Mary moved toVictoria, and Mum started to spend a couple of winter months there.When Mary’s job took her to Ucluelet, on Vancouver Island’s westcoast, Mum enjoyed a visit there too. She was never happier than withher children.

Latterly, as Mum’s health began to decline, she was unable to travelas she had. Ken made monthly trips from Elgin to see both parents, andMary came home for extended trips at Christmas and in the summer.These visits were always a joy for Mum. Last fall, Mum moved into anassisted care home in Pointe Claire where she remained connected tofamily and her lifelong friends, but also found friends in her newcommunity. It was a whole new lease of life for her, and her lastmonths were very happy. On April 14th, taking ill, she went into theLakeshore General Hospital. She rallied briefly, and we were able toenjoy further visits with her, and more laughs and stories. The windowwas brief however, and after a further decline, she died peacefully inthe early hours of June 1st, 2011.
