Lynn L’Heureux, a long-time parishioner of St. Michael’s and Calgary Diocesan Past-President, was very encouraging and supportive of the re-activation of St. Michael’s CWL in the early part of 2018. She attended our 2018 spring wind-up meeting, but over the summer her health has deteriorated and has since taken residence at a local nursing home. We wanted to acknowledge Lynn’s 45-year dedication to the CWL, but she wasn’t able to attend our 2019 spring wind-up and service pin award night.

Members of St. Michael’s CWL decided to create a shadow box display which includes her Maple Leaf Award, Diocesan Past-President, 45-year service, and 100th anniversary pins, in addition to paying for her 2019 membership.

The shadow box display made for Lynn (click to enlarge).

On June 7, President Pascale Kanbour and President-Elect Debbie Wagner presented this shadow box to Lynn at her residence where Jane Wu, President of St. Pius’ CWL and a volunteer at the nursing home, and family members were also in attendance. Pascale led us in a decade of the Rosary, prayers, and anointing with oil (non-sacramental). Lynn was thrilled in receiving this memento and reminiscing her CWL days.
