PAULINE "LYNN" BLUDAU
GEORGETOWN - Pauline Lucia "Lynn" Bludau, a resident of Georgetown, TX the past three years, and former Victoria resident, died on 29 October 2013, at the age of 76, in Pearland, TX, from effects of a brain tumor.
Lynn Bludau is survived by husband Colin; children Greg (Brenda), Grant, and Leona Kemp, all of the Houston area; brothers Rick and Paul Lebeuf and sister Theresa Obst, of the Edmonton, Alberta area; stepson Wayne (Hazel) Calhoun of Victoria, stepdaughter Leah Sarlls of San Antonio; and a generous number of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews, and cousins.
She was all about family and loved them all dearly, communicating regularly with five generations until the last of her parent's generation passed away recently.
She was born in Morinville, Alberta on Nov. 18, 1937, but spent her formative years in the remote, close-knit gold mining community of Yellowknife, NWT, Canada, and attended her last Ex-Yellowknifer's Reunion in June. She leaves behind a special friend from those years, Horst Schmid of Edmonton, Alberta. She spent most of her adult life in the southern United States, including over 25 years in Victoria, where she worked at Dupont and was proud of earning a BA degree from UH-Victoria at the age of 64. An earlier marriage to Cecil Calhoun of Victoria ended with his death in 2003.
Lynn enjoyed singing and exercised her talented soprano voice with the Victoria Civic Chorus, church choirs, Hospice Singers, and with similar groups in Georgetown. She considered Dr. Ruth Williams of Victoria a musical mentor. She spent many happy hours in archeological activities with the avocational archeology group at the Museum of the Coastal Bend.
Her warm, generous nature and beauty of spirit touched many throughout her life. Our singer has passed on,
but her song remains.
