History / Biographical
Lynn Shervill and Sheila Peters created the Creekstone Press in 1988, a printing business where local authors could have their materials published. As of 2019 it had published 21 books. Lynn and Shelia moved to Powell River in 2019.
Lynn Shervill was born in December 1946 and graduated from Western University’s journalism program, beginning his career as a reporter for the London Free Press. By 1988, Shervill had received an RN diploma from the College of New Caledonia in Prince George, B.C., and proceeded to spend the following 10 years working at the Bulkley Valley District Hospital in Smithers, B.C. Lynn worked to establish both the Smithers Cancer Care Unit at Bulkley Valley District Hospital and a palliative care program. He has been on the board of the BV Hospice Society for many years, working mostly in grief support and NavCare – a program to support the frail elderly.
Shervill and his wife, Sheila Peters married in 1978, moving to Driftwood Canyon. In his spare time Lynn became invested in the community’s local history. Shervill was on the Town of Smithers’ 60th Anniversary Committee, and authored a book for the anniversary titled, “Smithers: From Swamp to Village.” Both Lynn and Shelia were active environmental and social justice campaigners (Telkwa Foundation, Amnesty International, Driftwood Foundation, Smithers Human Rights Society).
