KENNEDY, Lynda Mary Rehder


Passed away peacefully at home on Wednesday, March 23, 2005. Lynda Rehder Kennedy A. Mus, B. Mus, M.M. Perf. in her 50th year. Beloved wife of Neil Kennedy and loving mother to Christine and Mary (North Bay); dear daughter of Robert and Margaret Rehder (Peterborough) and loving sister to Nancy (Calgary) and Jean (Toronto). Lynda will be sadly missed by her extended family. Lynda was a member of the Ontario Registered Music Teachers' Association, Alliance for Canadian New Music Projects, examiner for Conservatory Canada, and an active, experienced and knowledgeable music teacher, adjudicator, clinician, impresario, soloist and accompanist. She was a proud co-owner of Brava Music Studios. Lynda's positive, fair and consistent adjudication placed her in demand to adjudicate music festivals and examine across Canada and held her in good stead with students, parents, educators, performers and composers. She will be missed as an important contributor to the music community. Lynda was also an elder at Calvin Presbyterian Church. A memorial service celebrating the life of Lynda will be held at Calvin Presbyterian Church on Saturday, March 26 at 11:00 a.m. A time for fellowship and reminiscing will follow the service at the church. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the North Bay Regional Health Centre, the Conservatory Canada Scholarship Fund, or the Alliance for Canadian New Music Projects Scholarship Fund would be appreciated.
