Roberta Lynne Roux
Roberta Lynne Roux (Allison) was born on December 20, 1948 in Carman, Manitoba. She was raised in Roland, Manitoba, where she was very active in 4-H and graduated from high school. In 1975 she relocated to the Comox Valley where she lived until her battle with lymphoma quickly ended on March 29, 2013.
Lynne led a very full, meaningful life, loved her swimming pool and any opportunity to travel and enjoy time with her friends and family. She was also quite fond of the local rivers – she even helped discover an Elasmosaur on the banks of the Trent River in the Comox Valley in 1992. Lynne was a person with very few material possessions, yet gave so much to so many.
She was the long-time Administrator at the Sandwick Water Works District, and her career also included being a Reserve Member of the Canadian Armed Forces.
Lynne is survived by her son Scott Roux, her sister Barb Adams (Allison), in addition to a niece, nephew and cousins. She is predeceased by her parents, Jim Allison and Muriel Allison (Phillips).
A Celebration of Life open to all her family and friends will be held May 4th from 11am until 3pm at her house in Courtenay, BC.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
