We Remember

DEPATIE, Lynn Margaret Eleanor

January 4, 1943 — August 27, 2023

Lynn’s courageous fight with cancer has come to an end. Her positive outlook and spit fire nature kept her fighting for over seven years. Lynn’s memory is carried on through her children Scott (Stacey), Drew (Nicelle), Corrine (Anthony), as well as many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Lynn was raised in Field and Revelstoke, BC, with the family name Connolly and later moved to Calgary, AB, where she met her soul mate and husband of over 53 years, Richard DePatie, in Banff, AB.
Their sons and daughter, Scott, Drew & Corrine, were shortly followed with a move to their family acreage in Okotoks, AB. In between being a great stay at home mom, Lynn was employed as a legal assistant and later a recruiter in Calgary.

Retirement brought Lynn and Richard to Kelowna, BC in 1997, where they loved their adventurous and social life for over 25 years. If you were at the Kelowna hospital over ten years ago, you would have met the curly hair, redheaded volunteer Lynn at the Perking Lot café.

Lynn had a big personality; she was always positive, quick-witted, and a keeper of many stories. She loved to talk to anyone! Be it a store clerk or stranger on the street. Lynn always made quick friends with anyone she ran into and knew their life stories within their five-minute conversation.

Lynn absolutely loved all types of music and could be found dancing around her kitchen on any given day.

The DePatie family would like to thank all those for their support and kind words at this time. The family is planning a memorial later this year.

Lynn, a mom, grandma, and friend, made a difference in the lives of the people she met. She will be greatly missed by all.
