August 19, 1950 - December 24, 2012
December 24, 2012 marked life's end for Lynn Buell-Robson. Lynn died at home surrounded by her loving family. Left to mourn are husband, Mark, children Emily (Anto Sweetman), David (Allana) and Laura, grandchildren Kane and Heather Sweetman, mother Norma Buell (late Jack Buell), sister Pam Buell (late Jon Kehn) and sister-in-law Nancy Ryan (Terry). Lynn died as peacefully and gracefully as she had lived. Lynn was born and raised in Brockville, Ontario. She graduated from Queen's University (B.A. Honours Psychology '72) and McGill University (M.Sc., Speech and Language Pathology '75). Universities can be fertile ground for more than the mind. It was at McGill where Lynn met her husband Mark. Her married life and career began in Montreal where she worked for the Lakeshore School Board. Her career continued in Ottawa where she worked for CHEO and the Ottawa Children's Treatment Centre. Lynn and Mark moved to Arnprior in 1981, originally on a five year plan. However, this turned into a 32 year odyssey of love, laughter, community friendship and family memories. In her many years of work for both Renfrew County School Boards and the Arnprior Hospital, she became known as the "speech lady". Music and art were always strong influences in Lynn's life. Her contribution to children's development went beyond the clinical settings. She was frequently involved in children's musical education through local community organizations. Lynn was a proud Canadian, always thankful for the many gifts that life presented, and Grateful for the opportunity to travel this beautiful and diverse country. She had a strong conviction to make a contribution to society, wishing to leave the world a better place. All of those touched by her loving life will agree that she achieved this and more. We will all miss her tremendously.
