Lynn Helen Riddell


Lynn Helen Riddell (nee Colbert ) , of St.Marys, ON  previously of West Nissouri, passed away peacefully at St. Marys Memorial Hospital on August 1st, 2018 at the age of 80.

Predeceased by her husband, Robert William Riddell (2015), whom she married on June 6, 1959.


Mother of Scott and wife Kerry, Steven and friend Nicole, Chris and wife Janet, and grandchildren Spencer, Conner and Macy.

She was a Registered Nurse at the St. Marys. Memorial Hospital in St.Marys for over 40 years and her primary focus was in Obstetrics.  She had the pleasure of greeting several hundred if not thousands of children as they came into this world, something that she cherished greatly.  She was also heavily involved in the family farm and will be missed by many extended family members and friends in the community.

Cremation has taken place. Her family wishes everyone to know that the kind doctors and nurses at the hospital were fantastic and that without these small community hospitals the loving feeling that my mother had will be missed. 

Memorial donations are encouraged to the St. Marys Memorial Hospital Foundation.
