CHINN, Charlotte Mary
August 6, 1932 - November 3, 2012
Charlotte Mary Chinn slipped away quietly on 3rd November at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH). Born in Grand Falls, Newfoundland to P.A. and Mary Edwards, Mary married Geoffrey P. Chinn and had five children. In 1965 the family moved to Sherbrooke, Quebec. In Sherbrooke and Montreal Mary embarked on her life's work as a volunteer and fund-raiser, devoting her time and energy to numerous health, educational, municipal and community organisations including the Corporation of Bishop's University, the Canadian Federation of University Women, and the Foundation of St Mary's Hospital in Montreal. Honours include the Governor General's Award for Volunteering. She is survived by her children Adrienne, Fred, Geoff, Judith and Carolyn, and her grandchildren Charlotte, Amanda, Mavis, Jimmy and Henry. A Memorial Service will be held in the spring in Grand Falls, Newfoundland. If friends wish to remember Mary in a tangible form, donations to St. Mary's Hospital Foundation in Montreal would be most appreciated by her family.
