1947 – 2016
With sorrow, her family reports that Lynne Margaret Hume, 68, of Salmo, B.C., died on Saturday, January 9th, 2015 at the Trail Regional Hospital. She was born October 18, 1947 in Beaverlodge, Alberta to Ridler Robert and Edith Margaret Hume, who predeceased her. Left mourning are her partner of 48 years, Michael Koke, Salmo, B.C., her brothers Robert Keith Hume, Merritt, B.C. and Neil Douglas Hume, Oliver, B.C. and numerous nieces and nephews.
Lynne resided just outside of Salmo on “her farm” with her spouse since the late 1980’s/early 1990’s. She had a variety of careers including aspiring folk singer, ski industry office worker, Parks Canada, school bus driver and her favorite, a caregiver for a person with a disability. Lynne’s ultimate passion was animals. She arrived in Salmo with horses, dogs, cats and birds and continued with a variety of these for the years she was able to care for them. Lynne also loved crochet and gardening and her great accomplishment in the last few years was to make a “lasagna” flower garden.
Lynne found it difficult to accept help and really appreciated everything that many community members and organizations provided. A Celebration of Life will be held on January 16th, 2015 at 3:00 p.m. at the Crossroads Christian Fellowship, 4 – 12th Street, Salmo, B.C..
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the S.P.C.A., 520-C, Falls Street, Nelson, B.C.V1L 6B5. www.spca.bc.ca/branches/nelson/support.html
