In Memory Of Lynn Uzans

Mary "Lynn" Uzans
June 20, 1945 - June 8, 2023

Mary Lynn (Lynn) Uzans (nee Losier) died peacefully at Valley Regional Hospital, Kentville Nova Scotia on Thursday, June 8, 2023, after a progressive lung disease which was exacerbated by complications in May 2023.
Born to Joseph Vincent Losier (1915- 2011) and Jean Elizabeth (Gilbert) Losier (1925 -1997) in Moncton, New Brunswick on June 20, 1945, she grew up in the small, friendly community of Martinon NB (now part of Saint John)
After graduating from Saint John Vocational School, Saint John Regional Hospital Nursing School and McGill Public Health Nursing, she moved to Ontario, where she worked in Public Health Nursing, Social Work and Adult Education. In 1993, she shifted her passion for encouraging individuals and communities via public sector positions, to continue this call within ordained ministry in the Anglican Church of Canada
Lynn served parishes in Ontario (Huntsville and Aurora) and Nova Scotia (Kentville and Kingston/Middleton), as well as doing transition ministry and Sunday supply in many other Nova Scotia communities. In addition, she served as Transition Minister at First Baptist Church, Halifax and Sunday supply in United and Presbyterian Churches. She further enjoyed regional, diocesan and national opportunities to serve in the Anglican Church in a number of roles. Her love of people thrived in the rich diversity of connections these opportunities offered; and she was well aware that she received far, far more than she could ever give as she followed the road of each call.
There was also lots of time for play and Lynn did that through quilting, knitting, and spending time in the many beautiful places she was fortunate to call home, from Ontario to the East Coast. She greatly enjoyed storytelling as a way of connecting people to the experience of being fully human through shared experiences in the past and fantastical worlds.
Over the years, Lynn formed many wonderful relationships, but none won her heart as fully as those with her husband and daughters, each of whom, in their own unique way, are turning the world into a better place. She knows this legacy of justice, compassion and good sense will continue to enrich life for many.
Lynn is survived by her husband Elmer, who loved her quietly but thoroughly for 50 good years together. In addition, she is survived by daughters Dr. Drea Uzans (Joe Gillis) of Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland and The Rev. Nicole Uzans (The Rev. Penny Nelson) of Wolfville, Nova Scotia, siblings Lee Wilson, Grant Losier (Brenda), Pam Leaman (Don), Greg Losier (Heather), sister-in-law Ruth Uzans and several nieces, nephews and their offspring. She was pre-deceased by all but one of her aunts/uncles and by special brother-in-law Peter Wilson
If she could say one thing to you it would be to love well, be kind and trust that you are held in an embrace that encompasses every atom and the furthest reaches of creation.
