Obituary of Lynda Grace Reeves

It is with great sadness that the daughters of Lynda Reeves (Blackwell) announce the passing of their beloved mother on December 18th, 2020. Surrounded by her loving family via video meeting, Lynda passed away at Metropolitan Hospital in Windsor Ontario at the age of 73, after a short battle with Covid-19. Lynda was the cherished wife of Richard Reeves (for 53 years). Loving daughter of Grace (O’Dell) Blackwell (2013) and Ernest Blackwell (1993). Dearest sister to John Blackwell (Barbara) and sister in law to Ann (1998) and Neil McGregor. Cherished mother of Shelley Labute (Shawn Drummond), Julie Reeves and Melanie Baillargeon-Reeves (Rick Baillargeon). She will be greatly missed by grandchildren Alycia Labute (Donny Nussey), Kaitlyn Labute (Jordan McKeon), Tyler Phaneuf-Reeves, Isabelle Reeves-Robinson, Ernie Baillargeon and great-grandchildren Kaleb, Charlie, Parker and Darwin. She will also be missed by many of her nieces, nephews and friends.

Lynda loved spending time with family and was often found playing slots at the casino, knitting, and spending quiet time at home with her husband watching TV. She also enjoyed travelling to her Florida home with her husband, surrounded by good friends and family, especially laying on the beach in the sun with Mark and Bev Hermanstorfer. Lynda retired from the Windsor Star where she and Richard both worked.

Cremation will take place with a private graveside service at Lakeview Cemetery, Sarnia, at a future date. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Cancer Society or Covid-19 research would be appreciated, in her name, by the family. Arrangements through Reaume Funeral Home, Tilbury Ontario.
