Lynda Hollran-Thompson
After a 5 year battle with cancer, Lynda passed away peacefully in her new dream home with her loving family by her side. Always to be loved by her husband Greg, and her sons Jake (Jackie), Zack (Megan) and Riley. Survived by her parents Len and Lorna Hollran and her mother-in-law Margo Thompson. Remembered by her brothers Dan and Rick (Michelle), and her brothers-in-law Mark and Bart (Angie). Loving Aunt to Pat, Nick, Josh, Bryce, Darcy, Becca and Shelby. She will be missed by her extended family the Wanlesses.
Lynda touched the lives of countless others through her years of teaching, coaching, singing, and daily walks with friends. Lynda made close, lasting friendships throughout every stage of her life. From her younger years in Brampton, to University of Waterloo, to the past 25 years in Orangeville, especially with her extended lacrosse family. Great friendships were also made as Greg and Lynda travelled the States supporting their boys in their academic and lacrosse endeavors in both high school and university.
After her initial diagnosis, Lynda turned to music with a renewed passion and was able to inspire people with her beautiful singing. She loved playing her ukulele at restaurants, open mics, and with her Ukuladies. But nothing brought her more joy than jamming late into the night with family and friends, especially her boys and husband. She never wanted the party to end, so we will keep the music playing until we join her for the great gig in the sky.
As many have said over the past few days, Lynda was truly beautiful both inside and out. An angel while on earth.
Details of a modified service and future celebration jam to follow. In Lieu of flowers memorial donations may be made to CVC Foundation-Friends of Island Lake, Brett Snell Memorial Scholarship Fund or Orangeville Minor Lacrosse.
A tree will be planted in memory of Lynda in the Dods & McNair Memorial Forest at the Island Lake Conservation Area, Orangeville. The annual dedication service will be held on Sunday, September 13, 2020 at 2:30 p.m. Condolences may be offered to the family at

Greg, Jake, Zack & Riley:

Please accept our deepest condolences & heartfelt sympathies.

We will forever be grateful for the past 25 years of memories; from Lacrosse, tutorial sessions, salon appointments and family/social events.

Lynda's amazing personality, genuine care for family/friends and her "live for the moment" attitude was inspiring

The last 5 years have been difficult, but in a profound way it allowed us to bond further. We will always appreciate this time, try to incorporate Lynda's "zest for life" and cherish these experiences

The memorial service was beautiful and defiantly captured Lynda's personal impact on everyone she met. All of her magnificent traits have been instilled in Greg and the boys, as her legacy will continue.

Love always & Take care
Bill, Kelly, Klaysa, Noelle & Jack FitzPatrick

Dear Greg, Jake, Zach, and Riley - I am so proud of you, what a tribute to your Mom today! The words that you spoke and the words from her brothers and friends showed the world what an amazing, loving lady Lynda was. There was not a mean or pretentious bone in her body, what you saw was Lynda. She was so sincere in sharing her love and you came away feeling really good. I like to think that she will be in heaven with her father-in-law, Wayne, making music and laughing with "Uncle" Gord. I wonder if you can have bonfires in heaven? Treasure your memories of her, our "earth angel".

After watching the service today, it seems obvious that everyone who knew and loved Lynda was truly blessed. Listening to Zac, Jake and Riley clearly demonstrated how much they loved and treasured their Mother. You must have felt so very proud, Greg, to hear your sons speak of their Mom with such compassion and love. How fortunate you are to have such wonderful memories of Lynda who filled your lives with so much joy. Cherish and share those memories so that she can live on in your hearts forever. Sending you love and wishing you peace, Grace

Sending love to you and your family today, Greg. I was able to watch the whole ceremony today from Frankfurt, which was so very moving and shone the brightest loving light on Lynda, especially when your boys spoke. Rest assured, we Brampton girls will uphold the jam sessions, too!

Christine and I are sorry and saddened to hear the news, and our prayers are with you, boys and family.

If I think about the most naturally kind and patient (and fun) people I have known, Lynda will easily surface to the top.
I can recall a certain gentleness about her spirit going way, back to all the times we hung out with Greg and Lynda and friends in
our high school years and each time we all reconnected. She was consistently that same person-Lynda.

To me, Lynda was the first with a smile, and both would laugh and listen easily in any situation. People would gravitate
towards her for that reason .

But I remember her as having a certain fearlessness too, like when she was back-packing around Europe
in the late-80’s. I recall asking her if she was ever scared of travelling alone.
I can recall a pause, “Naw, not really.” It stuck with me for some reason over the decades.

In November we slipped into a café and witnessed Lynda, and sons playing beautiful music.
And you Greg, by her side-always supportive . There was depth of love and connection, beyond words.
We will never forget that.

Lynda, that same Light and Presence, seemed exactly where she wanted to be.
