Lynne Evans November 28, 1950 - December 22, 2021

Date of Funeral

December 27, 2021

Lynne B. Evans (Widrow) “Woody” of Canton, formerly of Randolph, passed away peacefully after a long and courageous battle with Multiple Sclerosis at the age of 71 on the morning of December 22nd, 2021.

Born in 1950, the second of five children to the late Esther and Samuel Widrow, Lynne graduated from Randolph High School. She continued her education throughout the years at Katherine Gibbs College and UMass Boston.

Lynne was the beloved wife of Michael; loving mother to her late son Sean Davis, son Adam and his wife Alaina, and daughter Jamie Pious and her husband Dan. She was exceptionally proud and grateful to be a grandmother to Jackson and Ruby. As a sister, Lynne leaves behind Steven Widrow and his wife Arlene, Sheryl Carlevale and her husband Frank, David Widrow, and Michael Widrow and his wife Julie. She was also a cherished aunt to many nieces and nephews, too numerous to count.

Lynne was a partner in business with Michael, acting as bookkeeper and office manager for their many businesses. She was an avid reader who loved thrillers and science fiction novels, had a taste for great food, and wanted nothing more than to be surrounded by her family, especially her grandchildren. She was over the moon to meet her new granddaughter Ruby, she cherished her drawings from Jackson, and loved to facetime both daily. She loved to laugh, had a great sarcastic sense of humor, and was quick to share her opinions.

She will be sorely missed by all who were blessed to have known her. Services will be held on Monday, December 27th at 11 a.m. at Schlossberg Chapel, 824 Washington Street, Canton, MA, followed by interment at Sharon Memorial Park.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Kidney Foundation or MS Society.

Services will be held on Monday, December 27th at 11 a.m. at Schlossberg Chapel, 824 Washington Street, Canton, MA, followed by interment at Sharon Memorial Park.

    Lynne was, and will forever be, an important part of the Cannon family (Varina, VA). In her earlier life, Woody, as we knew her, was a breath of fresh air when she met my Mom & Pop, Nora & Albert Sr. and the rest of us in the early 1970s. Woody was very special to me; we always had a lot of fun together. Lucky for me, my strict Pop always let me out of the house to hang out with her when she was visiting. Over the years a loving relationship grew as Woody and the Cannons made numerous trips up and down 95 or later flew into Boston. Great times. Although the trips subsided in recent years, the love endured.

    To Dewey, Adam, Jaime and Woody’s siblings, our heartfelt sympathies.
    With love, Russell & Nancy
