Lillian Dynkavitch, age 82 of Shoreview, MN passed away peacefully at United Hospital on September 27th, 2021. Preceded in death by her dearly missed husband, Robert; sisters, Gwen, Margaret and Merle; and parents. Survived by her four children, Darryl (Kelly), Taras, Andrea (Jeff) and Darren; generous grandma to her five grandchildren, Daniel, Nathan, Dylan, Sarah and Sadie; many nieces, nephews, extended family & loving friends.
Lillian was born and raised in Winnipeg, MB where she was a proud member of the Canadian Armed Forces. She was happy to follow Robert’s lead in 1967 and move to Minneapolis, MN to raise a family together. She wasn’t afraid to try different jobs and worked hard for several years as a moving business owner. In her later years she enjoyed volunteering. She was very generous and gave much of herself to helping her family and friends whenever in need. She also enjoyed cooking which was a talent passed down through the family.
Mom was a bright spirit and kind soul. Her strength came from the many women in the family preceding her. She also found strength in church and grew a love for Christian values and all that it offered her. She really knew the meaning of fun and never got too old for it. She was young at heart and showed it with her great sense of humor and playful side and that’s why we can write this: She was an avid collector of Many Many Many things. She was always sure to save her leftovers to feed all her animals, the wild one’s outdoors that is. She had her own way of doing things and didn’t mind keeping you waiting. She was confident and never concerned that on occasion, would show up wearing two different shoes. She just had a laugh and kept on about her day. She considered herself lucky and I think we can all agree that was the case defying the odds time and time again. A great love to all. The countless ways she will be missed.
