It is with great sadness, that we announce the passing of Annette Lyman (nee Trottier), age 99.5.  She passed away peacefully in the early morning of November 25, 2022, at the Hawkesbury General Hospital.  She was predeceased by her husband, Angus, in 1994.  Proud mother of Diane (John) Seymour and Susan Kelly.  Grandmother to Chris (Cathy) Seymour, Erin Kelly (Mike Quinn) and the late Andrea Kelly (Marc Alarie).  Great grandmother of Kayla Buss (Darryl), Emily Seymour, Alex Gregoret-Quinn and Lauren Quinn.  Great-great grandmother of Mackenzie McDonald.  Annette is survived by her sisters, Juliette Robertson and Jeannette Lobb, many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. Special friend to Ed Zachau, Mireille Dauphinais, and Lucille Arcand – her beloved ‘adopted’ children. Many thanks to Ed Zachau for his constant presence and assistance in Annette’s life.  She led a very full and beautiful life - matriarch, leader, volunteer, nurturer, and friend.
