We deeply regret to announce the passing of Lynn Puckett on Jan 30, 2018 at the age of 66. Lynn was born March 12, 1951 in Coronation, AB, the oldest of 6 children, and spent her school years in the Major and Kerrobert area. She moved to Saskatoon after finishing high school and achieved her degree as a Registered Nurse, a career which was lifelong. While living in Saskatoon she met, and then married her life partner, Dwight. Together they raised 3 children while farming and nursing in the Davidson area.
Lynn’s work was always focused around health care. She was an ambulance attendant, home care nurse, and spent many years working at the Craik Health Care Center, where she met many lifelong friends. Her passions included gardening, crafting, watching curling and the Toronto Blue Jays, and attending as many of her 4 grandchildren’s functions as possible. Lynn was fondly known for her cooking and baking, always supplying the treats for hunting trips and shooting events that Dwight was involved in. She was a tremendously reliable and respected caregiver, who was always there to lend a hand to anyone who needed.
Lynn was predeceased by her grandson Allen Nelson; brother Ron Balanoff; parents-in-law Neil and Margaret Puckett; and recently her husband, Dwight.
She will be deeply missed by her sons, Bob and Michael (Kim), and daughter Michele (Gilbert) Nelson; grandchildren Trevor and Travis Nelson, Haylie and Hayden Puckett; parents Bob and Phyllis Balanoff; sisters Penny Anderson, Pat (Kevin) Mackrell, Susan (Dave) Rodzen, and Robin (Toby) Hok; sister-in-law Tammy Balanoff; brothers-in-law Jim (Fay) Puckett, Merritt Puckett; Step-grandchildren Jeff (Sandy) Nelson, Jeremy (Nicole) Nelson; step great-grandchildren Shayla, Makayla, and Jaxon Nelson.
A United Church funeral service was held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday Feb. 3, 2018 at Sacred Heart Parish in Davidson Sask, with Rev. Mathias Ross presiding. A family interment will take place at a later date.
For those so wishing, memorial donations in memory of Lynn may be directed to the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency or a charity of choice.
Hanson’s Funeral Home of Davidson in care of arrangements.
