Lynne Merle Parsons of Grenfell, SK, passed away on June 16, 2021, at the age of 81 years.
Lynne was born July 1, 1939, in Grenfell, SK, to Denys and Beatrice Parsons. He attended school in Grenfell and married his high school sweetheart, Mavis Yule, on August 6, 1960. They celebrated their 60th anniversary in the midst of COVID-19 in 2020.
After a two-year stint working as a surveyor, Lynne returned to farm north of Grenfell. Farming was a calling rather than a job, and over the years, Lynne and Mavis grew grain and raised a variety of cattle, pigs, chickens, and even three children!
Lynne was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He enjoyed travelling and dancing, but in true Saskatchewan-boy style, if you couldn’t find him on a tractor, the next best place to look was a rink. Lynne spent many hours playing, coaching, refereeing and watching hockey, as well as curling. Multiple generations of kids can attest to his involvement at the rink.
Lynne will be sorely missed by the love of his life, Mavis; daughter Heather (Dean) Dorgan and sons David Parsons (Sheri Christie) and Kent Parsons; grandchildren Tanys (Ryan) Archibald, Reed (Renee) Dorgan, Lynice (Kris) Firey, Kennen Dorgan, Sara (Malcolm) Vanstone, Sasha (Tony) Brigham, Shyanne (Justin) Inkson, Shyla Christie (Brenden Lusok) and Danielle Christie; and eight great-grandchildren, Zoey and Levi Archibald, Carter and Hannah Dorgan, Tate and Heath Firey, Autumn Vanstone and Lyla Inkson, as well as sisters-in-law Loy, Jean and Donna Parsons, and many nieces, nephews and friends. Lynne was also looking forward to a ninth great-grandchild. He has gone to wait for us with his daughter-in-law, Shelley Parsons, and siblings Joan (Blake) Amy and Denys, Les (Helen), Ellwyn (Ida) and Lyle Parsons, and Cameron (Ruth) Yule.
A graveside service will be held July 1, 2021, at 2:00 p.m., for family and invited guests (due to Covid-19). All others are invited to view the live-stream on the Matthews Funeral Home Facebook page. It is not necessary to have Facebook to access the link.

In lieu of flowers, please direct memorial donations to a program near and dear to Lynne’s heart - Astonished! is a program for young adults with complex disAbilities. The online donation link is https://www.canadahelps.org/en/dn/m/13544/donation. Cash or cheque can be made to Astonished!Inc. and mailed to Astonished!Inc at 3737 Wascana Parkway, Regina, SK S4S 0A2. We are better together!

Mavis & Family. I don't see the condolence I sent yesterday & so will send it again. Vicki & I are so sorry to hear of the passing of Lynne. He was a good friend of our whole family since we moved to Grenfell in 1951. We remember playing in Mr & Mrs Parsons backyard when we were 4 & 5 year old kids. Lynne & Elwynne were always there to play with us & pull off a few pranks. Mavis, my best memories of both of you was when I worked on your Farm in 1964 when I was 16 years old. I had to put up with Lynnes singing, but other than that it was real fun !!

Dear Mavis and family

My memory of the Parsons family came in the late summer of 1950 when my parents moved to Grenfell from Indian Head. Dad, George Fuller, worked on the C.P.R. And coached hockey when Lynne was a teenager. I remember Lynne playing hockey with great enthusiasm and vigour. Lynne lived his life under that same banner, “All or nothing!” But he played by the rules and kept honour to his game, his name, for the Town and the fans. There are not too many people in the world like that seem to live by that lofty code as Lynne Parsons lived his life.

God rest his soul.

Stan Fuller



Many blessings

Stan Fuller
