Lynne Poschmann (nee Bennett)
December 12, 1941 to January 31, 2009
Lynne Poschmann passed away on the afternoon of January 31st with her daughters at her side. Her very dear husband of 44 years, Hubert Poschmann, recently predeceased her on December 16th. Lynne’s memory lives on in her daughters Johanne (Sean) Stovell, and Stephanie (Wayne) Melvin, her grandchildren Miles and Dannon Stovell, and Jesika Melvin, her siblings Judie (Sheldon) Ahola, and Jack (Barb) Bennett, and her mother Edna Bennett. She also leaves behind her sisters-in-law Ursula Reder and Irmgard Lischewski, many treasured nieces, nephews, and cousins, and loyal friends.
Many people remember Lynne as a kind person who appreciated people as individuals, and who loved to laugh. Lynne was in the first class to attend the University of Victoria in its current location, when it was mainly muddy fields and old army huts. She completed her teacher’s training at UVic, and headed out to Bamfield BC to start her greatest adventure in life. If you knew Lynne well for any length of time, you learned many lessons about patience, kindness, and forgiveness. Perhaps that was her purpose in life, and her gift to us all.
A funeral service for family and friends will be held at Brechin United Church at 1998 Estevan Road at 1:00 pm on Friday, February 6, 2009. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Kidney Foundation (BC Branch) and Literacy BC would be appreciated.
