Lynn was a wonderful person and will be dearly missed. Our hearts go out to Brittany and Derek & Kristen. She was a great mother and mother-in-law to them. Her loss was much too soon after the loss of their father. May time and the love of family and friends help them heal.
God Bless,

Although I didn't know Lynne personally, I came to know and love her children Derek and Brittany and know she is proud to have helped raise such wonderful adults. My condolences to her family and friends for their loss.

Lynne and her whole family have been such a large part of my life since we were both two years old. I have so many fond memories of her parents Sylvia and Wayne, her sister Susan, and Mrs. Pink. I especially treasure the visit she and Brittany made to Florida when Brittany graduated high school. My biggest regret is not being able to say goodbye before her passing.
