Dwyer, Carol “Lynne”
1946 – 2023

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Mom, Grandma, Great-Grandma, Sister, Aunt, and dear friend Carol “Lynne” Dwyer at the age of 77, on November 2, 2023, at the Red Deer Regional Hospital.

Lynne Dwyer was born in Vegreville, AB on September 30, 1946, and was given the name Carol Lynne Eickmeyer. She was raised in Vegreville, where she met the love of her life, high school sweetheart, and late husband Ed. After graduation, they both excitedly moved to Edmonton pursuing post-secondary education, where Lynne completed the secretarial program at Alberta College. Lynne and Ed married in 1966 and soon after happily welcomed their first child Dean. In 1970 they moved to Rocky Mountain House, AB where Ed was offered his first teaching job at Will Sinclair High School, and over the following years were blessed with the arrival of their two daughters Denienne and Dori.

While raising kids and growing their family Lynne returned to work, working various jobs doing secretarial work, including a position at The Bay (later known as Zellers), The Family Shoe Store and lastly the bowling alley. During these years, many family trips were taken creating special memories, including road trips to the coast of British Columbia and back to her hometown in Vegreville. In 2000 Lynne and Ed were presented with the wonderful opportunity to purchase the bowling alley which became Rocky Lanes owned and run by Lynne and Ed. Lynne poured her heart into the bowling alley, organizing many different leagues and bowling events over the years while creating many treasured friendships along the way. When Lynne wasn’t working, she could be found crafting, sewing, quilting, completing jigsaw puzzles or passionately playing the piano and organ. Many memories were made with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren as she would take the time to teach each child one or more of these hobbies. On top of these hobbies and with Ed’s help, Lynne devoted countless hours gardening and beautifying their yard at their family home, where they lived for over 50 years. Their dedication didn’t go unnoticed and was awarded ‘Best Total Yard’ in 2002 by the Clearwater Garden Club – Communities in Bloom. Over the years they became honored with 9 grandkids, who Lynne loved endlessly. Although Lynne often had a full schedule, time was always made to attend her grandkid’s sporting games, school assemblies, band concerts and all other extracurricular activities. Family was the joy of her life, and every holiday Lynne would take pride in hosting the entire family on all holidays and birthdays spending days preparing, cooking, and cleaning managing to accommodate over 20 family members all at once. Lynne had an abundance of compassion, and this was obvious as she dedicated much of her time caring for her father in his later years as well as her Aunts Ida and Marion. In 2017, Lynne unfortunately received the diagnosis of breast cancer but fought tirelessly and entered remission in 2018. Approaching retirement years Lynne sadly lost her soul mate, best friend, and husband Ed in July 2019. Lynne then moved to Red Deer in August 2022, with her daughter Dori where she had many adventures and created long-lasting memories. This is where she found her new love of Dairy Queen Blizzards and Roscata sweet red wine. Lynne continued to love all her family dearly including her precious 6 great-grandchildren and was overjoyed to hear of the upcoming arrival of her 7th great grandkid. Lynne will always be remembered for the overwhelming love and interest she had for all those she cared about.

Lynne was predeceased by her parents Joyce and Bill Eickmeyer and her husband Ed Dwyer.

She is lovingly remembered and survived by her sister Norma Ralph (Ben), son Dean Dwyer (Colleen), daughters: Denienne and Dori Dwyer; grandchildren: Samantha Brousseau, Nick Dwyer, Devin Dwyer (Delia Loomis), Lauryl Dwyer, Brendan Enns, Blake (Kara) Enns, Charissa Pollard (Andrew Jorritsma), Cassandra Pollard (Justin Ford), Jysic Pollard (Sara Redbear); great-grandchildren: Laraya Dwyer and soon to be baby sibling, Arianna Dwyer, Bennett Enns, Isabella, Ivy and Lukas Jorritsma-Pollard as well as many cherished in-laws, cousins, nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews, and dear friends.

A service will be held at the Rocky Church of the Nazarene – 5340 59 Ave, Rocky Mountain House, AB. on Saturday, November 18, at 2:00 pm.

Inurnment to take place at the Pine Grove Cemetery, Rocky Mountain House, AB.

Had the privilege of knowing Lynne through many connections in the bowling community.

Lynne was a great organizer and host for tournaments, lane certification and Central Alberta 5 Pin meetings.
