It is with heavy and saddened hearts that we announce the passing of Meredith Lynn Colotelo on March 19, 2023.
Lynn was predeceased by her husband Douglas, parents John and Janice Pennington, and sister Lesley Jane Leroux.

She will be missed by her relatives and all those she lovingly touched and called “my family”. She will be especially missed by her faithful “furry friend” Skippy.

Lynn left home in Brantford, Ontario after completing high school to attend college in Calgary and decided to stay in the West where she fashioned a career in the retail apparel profession in Edmonton. Rather than fully retire, she remained as casual support at George Richards in Southgate until her passing.

Lynn had a great appreciation of fine art (in particular Canadiana works), a passion for Royal Doulton figurines, amassing an impressive collection, and a fondness of African violets. She loved attending Eskimos/Elks football games, rarely missing any, and enjoying the ‘requisite’ hot dog and a beer. She was a great fan and community member of CKUA Radio and their music and volunteered for many years at the Northern Lights Folk Club. For a number of years, Lynn was also a volunteer driver transporting patients to and from the Cross Cancer Institute every Monday.

Cremation has taken place. There will be no public service.

Donations in memoriam can be made to the Edmonton Humane Society or to the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton.

  1. I’m sorry for your loss. I thank Walter R. for all his kindness towards both Lynn and Doug when it was needed. Walter put together the music for Doug’s service which was greatly appreciated. May both Doug and Lynn Rest In Peace.

  4. Lynn was always an energetic and joyful spirit. She was always cheerful and you couldn’t help but smile in her presence. Our condolences to all who loved her…you will be dearly missed.
    With much sadness and love,
