Board of Directors 2021


Lynne Funnell,  President              

I was born and raised in Ottawa to two loving parents and I have four older brothers.  After completing my university degree from Ottawa University, I moved to Kingston in 1975. I married Bill Funnell in 1976 and am the mother to three children; Jeff, Jennifer and Shelly and the Nana to 7 beautiful grandchildren.

I worked at MDS Labs (Lifelabs) for many years.  I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002 and joined BCAK in 2007.  In 2009, I became a member of the board and then moved to the executive committee. This is my second year as President.

I enjoy walking, hiking and looking after the grandkids.

I have about 40 years of accounting clerk work, 16 before I retired from Aviva Reinsurance Dept.,  7 years as the bookkeeper for a small business.  Also, Treasurer for the Rideau Trail Association, Kingston branch and bookkeeper for the RTA Board.  Spent 25 years in night school to make up for not having a university degree. Ballroom dancer for about 16 years. Love to swim, hike or walk the trails and give dinner parties for my friends.  I am a keen gardener with 7 flowerbeds. Avid reader though my interests are murder mysteries these days.  I consider myself a feminist, an equal rights advocate and an environmentalist.
