A Celebration of Life will be held at 2 pm on June 24th at the Eagle Bay Community Church with interment to follow.

Suddenly, on March 19, 2017, we lost our beloved Mom, Marilyn Gloria Rowswell (Stewart) of Eagle Bay, BC at the age of 82 years.
“Lynn” was born in Winnipeg, MB where she grew up and attended college to become a nurse. She worked as an airline stewardess before marrying Bud Rowswell in 1958. Lynn worked as an R.N. briefly before becoming a homemaker to raise four children with her husband Bud. They moved several times over the course of his career and Lynn always bloomed where she was planted.
Lynn was a committed member of the community who loved people. She volunteered at the Salmon Arm Recreation Centre for many years and prided herself  on staying fit and active.Lynn is survived by her daughter Darcy Sims, son Doug Rowswell, daughter Tracey Rowswell, son Dale Rowswell, eleven grandchildren and four great grandchildren.  
She was predeceased by her husband Bud and several furry children.
Memorial gifts in lieu of flowers may be made to the BC SPCA, 5850 Auto Road SE, Salmon Arm, BC, V1E 2X2.




  1. I work at Save On Foods. Lynn always was there to listen to me if we saw each other in the store. A true, classy lady, I always looked forward to seeing and talking. She gave me advice unjudgementally. I will miss her.

  2. The morning aquasize classes will never be the same. Lynn helped us all by her willingness to organize the equipment each day. Although I didn’t know her well, I was impressed by her devotion to fitness and helping others. She was always cheerful and looked for the best in everyone. I am shocked by her sudden passing and will always remember the woman who made me feel welcome and ‘part of the group’.
    Rest in peace, Lynn.

  3. Dear Family of my aquasize friend.
    My workout days will not be the same without Lynn at the pool and the coffee shop.
    I am saddened and quite shocked by Lynn’s sudden passing.
    Lynn remembered us with greeting cards every Christmas.
    She was one special lady.
    My heart aches for you each and I pray Holy God will comfort each of you today with Himself.
