In loving memory of Lynda Frances Soltysiak who sadly passed away on 30th December 2019 Aged 56 years.
The Burial will take place on Wednesday 29th January in Chartham Kent with the family and the Memorial Service will take place on Thursday 30th January at Crown Court Church of Scotland followed by a reception. Just to confirm the address of the Memorial Service is Great Russell St, London. WC2B 5EZ. Parking is limited but it is so central you can walk from Covent Garden or Charing Cross Station and its near the Strand so near plenty of bus routes and black cabs. Its quite near the theatre where "A women in black" has played for 30 years. The reception will largely be light but people can come and sign the remembrance book and celebrate Lynda's life. Lynda loved music and her choir have kindly agreed to sing at the service.
All are welcome to the Memorial Service to celebrate her life and black dress is not required but smart dress is and no very young children please. Lynda was an amazing wife, sister, daughter and kind to everyone. She was known for always having a smile even when not being treated very well. She did her best and worked hard, often out of office hours to improve herself for others. The way she was taken by cancer in 5 weeks is terrible at such a young age. We were just going to work a few years and then enjoy a well deserved retirement and travel. I was married to her for 11 years but was with her for another 15 years. She never forgot an anniversary or birthday. She was always loyal, faithful and loved being married. She told me at Christmas that we would dies of the Cancer but we would work together to enjoy every minute together and we had and expected to face down chemotherapy and for this to be a few years. Chemotherapy was due to start on the 30th December. The say she died.
On the day she was told she had terminal cancer on 20th December she still had a still had a smile and kind word for everyone. She never really complained about the pain, her poor breathing at night or the future. She was so brave and lovely, I just loved her more for this and it was me who was crying. Everyone I talk to is devastated and shocked - even the Hospital! I will try to give a proper Eulogy at the memorial service but forgive me if I break down as she was so special, so soft inside, and my soul mate for so long. We looked after each other and faced the world together. I came from a poor family and she came from a well off business family but we both had a big heart and some how had found each other. Some people called us "the bods" because of this but this was because they could see we were two public sector workers, kind and caring who were made for each other.
Please do not send flowers because she died of Breast Cancer and in her papers I have just found she was also monthly paying money to St Mungo's as her charity. She also used to steal my pennies from my purse every week to put in the homeless charity box at church when she went off to sing in the choir! It made us laugh on Sunday breakfast. She was always thinking of others and not herself. An amazing girl.
