Marilyn Lynore Mann (Wood)
Passed on July 7, 2021
June 10, 1939 – July 7, 2021 It is with great sadness the family of Lynn Mann wish to announce the passing of our dearest Mom, Grandma and Great-Grandma. With relief in our hearts, we know that she is finally at peace and free from her life-long struggle with rheumatoid arthritis.
She will be forever remembered by her children: Brad (Donna) Mann, Bambi (Bruce) Rutherford and Heidi (Dale) Fitchett; grandchildren: Jason (Nicole) Mann, Laura (Ian) Billingham, Kaitlyn (Scott) Yurick, Brittany (Kurt) Kelly, Josh (Caitlin) Rutherford, Ashley and Nicholas Fitchett; great-grandchildren: Jason and Austen Mann, James and Connor Billingham, Easton, Ava, Sophie and Mya Yurick, Willow and Rhodes Kelly, Lili and Navy Rutherford. Surviving brothers are: Stuart and Jeff Wood. She was predeceased by her parents, Lloyd and Sadie Wood and husband, Robert (Bob) Mann.
Mom was born and raised in Teulon, the oldest of three children. She attended high school at Glenlawn Collegiate in Winnipeg and thereafter worked at Great-West Life. She met the love of her life, Bob Mann and they were married in 1957. They raised their family in Stonewall. Oh, how they loved to dance and travel – Australia, Disney World, Europe and many camping trips brought much joy and family fun over the years.
Mom was very active in the Kinette Club of Stonewall, Church of the Ascension (Anglican), IOOF and with the local Rockwood Festival of the Arts. She loved to play the piano and received her training with Mr. Ted Lincoln of Winnipeg. Mom also taught piano in the community for many years. Mom enjoyed sewing and in 1977, she purchased her own fabric store, known as “Bobbins Buttons and Bows” in Stonewall. Mom played a key role in their many business ventures.
Mom’s greatest joy was her family, always looking forward to family gatherings at Christmas, Easter and birthdays. Mom was interested in what everyone was doing. As Mom enjoyed her “sweets”, there was always a bowl of chocolates or candy on the table.
Mom had a beautiful smile and was a quiet woman of integrity, amazing strength, positivity, compassion and love. She will be missed but never forgotten.
The family wish to express our sincere appreciation to Dr. Graham and the nurses and care-providers at Stonewall Hospital for the compassion and comfort they bestowed to our Mom and Grandmother.
In lieu of flowers if you so desire, donations may be forwarded to the Church of the Ascension, Box 550, Stonewall, Manitoba R0C 2Z0.
A private family service will be held at a later date.
Mom and Grandma and Great-Grandma – “Forever in our memories, till we meet again!”
So sorry to hear of the passing of the lovely Lynn. Sincere condolences to her family.
