Lynn enjoyed traveling and a had a passion for sharing that love with her daughter and grandson. Lynn truly loved golf, watching tennis and having an iced cold beer with her many cherished friends. She adored her pets throughout her life, in particular Peanut, Buddy, Laddie and Lincoln. Lynn was outgoing, fun, loving and made the most out of life. She would not hold back on patience or lack thereof, not hold back on her opinion and had a knack for telling it like it is. She always told you the truth, even if it wasn’t what you wanted to hear, she meant it with passion. Lynn will always be remembered for her love of her daughter, grandson and friends, her intelligence, passion for life, and unwavering loyalty. Her gregarious outgoing personality made her a woman who will be sorely missed.
