Death of Pastor Lynn Lawrence

We were saddened to learn of the recent death of GCI-Canada Pastor and long-time youth camp director Lynn (Egbert) Lawrence. Following are notes from Lynn’s brother Jeb Egbert and GCI-Canada National Director Gary Moore.

From Jeb Egbert

Lynn and Dennis’ wedding

At 5:05 p.m. on October 28, my dear sister Lynn Lawrence, passed away. She was surrounded by members of her family, and I was honored to be with her from 10:00 a.m. until her struggle with the scourge of cancer ceased. Thanks to all for your expressions of compassion, love and support during this difficult period.

From Gary Moore

Lynn served alongside her late husband Dennis in pastoral ministry from the time they left Ambassador College until his death in 2011. Lynn was an elder and pastored GCI’s Montreal English congregation until earlier this year when her battle with cancer precluded her carrying on that responsibility.

Lynn leaves her four daughters, Abbie, Judith, Ericka and Erin, their families and other relatives, not to mention many friends and brethren.

Lynn’s funeral will be held at 12:45 pm on Saturday, Nov. 4 at Christ Church (455 Rue Church Beaconsfield, Quebec. H9W4W8). Burial will take place at 2:30 pm at Lakeview Memorial Gardens (701 Rue Donegani, Pointe Claire H9R 5G6). Following the burial, a reception with light meal will be held at Christ Church.

Cards to the family may be sent to:

  1. Surely it was a great comfort for Lynn to be surrounded by loved ones during her final hours on this earth before passing through the door to eternity. While the temporary separation is painful we know that on that Great Day joy will fill the universe.

    In Him,
    Santiago and Elke

  2. So sorry to hear of Lynn’s death. She will be greatly missed, as is Dennis. Gone too soon. But we know God is sovereign over all and His gracious Plan will bring eternal joy to all who know and love Him. I first met Lynn and Dennis at a youth camp session in Orr, Minnesota, and it has been my pleasure to watch and hear about their (and then her) ongoing ministry work for many, many years. Lynn leaves a wonderful legacy in the hearts of all she touched.

  3. Hello to the extended Egbert and Lawrence family,
    You most likely do not know me but I was a friend of grandad John and your grandma.
    I Remember your Dear Mom very well from the days when she was in High school and and college .. My wife Anthea and I visited your home many times in Pasadena in those happy old days
    Your grandad John and I worked side by side at the Church printing and publishing operation in the 1970’s. Your mom used to spend after school visits to see her dad at his office then.
    What a great example your mom was and is still in our memories to this day and forever.
    Was thinking of you all today Nov 4th the day of her funeral.
    Sending our love and deep respect. Roger and Anthea Lippross
