It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Tamara Patricia Louise Lynch-Dalgleish on December 21, 2020 shortly before her 78th birthday. She will be dearly missed by her husband of 43 years, Andrew Dalgleish, her daughter, Alexandra, her son, Michael, and daughter-in-law, Delphine. Her adored grandchildren, Félix and Madeleine will miss her sense of fun as well as her strawberry jam and pickled onions. She will be forever missed by her big brother, Michael, sister-in-law, Robin, and her nieces and nephews, Joanna, Jacqueline, David, Patrick and Cathryn and by her many cousins. She inspired and was loved by family, friends, neighbours in Hudson, Montreal and Vale Perkins and by her former colleagues at the National Film Board.

The family expresses its gratitude to the Segal Cancer Centre of the Jewish General Hospital for keeping Tamara in our family for over 3 decades. Tamara faced her cancer with courage and strength, as a chronic but manageable condition. When the end came, she accepted it calmly with dignity and grace, having led a full and accomplished life. The last sounds she heard were her lovely grandchildren singing her Petit Papa Noël.

To respect Tamara’s wishes there will be no funeral service and no memorial. She was a very private person and hopes that all those who loved her will understand that last wish. Donations may be made in her memory to the Segal Cancer Centre, c/o the Jewish General Hospital Foundation or to Santropol Roulant where she volunteered in the meals on wheels kitchen.

Messages for the Family of Lynch, Tamara

From: The Bisseggers

Andrew, DIane and I are so sorry to hear of Tammy’s passing. She fought a long hard battle. It has been too many years since we have touched base. When you are up to it, please get back to us so we can catch up. The Bisseggers
From: Jack McGregor

Andrew, I was just advised today by Dick Messier of Tammy's passing. As you and I have been out of touch for decades, I was unaware of her lengthy battle with cancer. I know that the treatment can be mentally as difficult for the partner as for the patient so my sympathies and condolences go out to you. If you ever feel like catching up, I would be pleased to hear from you. My number here in Florida is (561) 799-6353.

Andrew, nous sommes désolés d’apprendre cette triste nouvelle. Nous garderons de Tammy un souvenir de douceur et de grande gentillesse. Vous faisiez un couple uni, avec des valeurs solides.

Que Dieu ait son âme et puisse-t-elle reposer en paix.
From: Karen Cho

My deepest sympathies go out to Tamara's family and loved ones. I was so saddened to hear of her sickness and passing. Tamara was the first Producer I ever worked with at the NFB. She taught me so much about the power of storytelling and was such an influential mentor in my life. She will be sorely missed but fondly remembered. May she rest in peace.

In sympathy,

Karen Cho
