Lynn was my childhood friend and we spent time with my Grandmother up at the Cherokee Reservation. My very favorite photo is of her and I as 5 year olds with the Chief at the reservation. I fondly remember swimming in her grandparents pool in the summer. I am so very sorry for her loss. I will always remember her with much affection.

Lynn was a precious lady with a sweet, sweet spirit. Ill never forget her kindness to me when I was in the hospital. Oh how she loved Madison and fought so hard to have her in their life. She will be missed but I know Miss Doris welcomed her to Heaven. My love to the family and prayers continue for you!

Lynn was a true friend and very devoted to her family. I will miss our quilting retreats and all the laughs we shared while there. I had the privilege of talking to her on Sunday and hearing how proud she was of her children, how much she loved her husband and his understanding of her causes, and how much she loved her mother and spending time with her. Heaven has gained an angel for sure.

Lynn will be a great loss to the community and Hillcrest hospital. Her passion to support the community and lake Rabon estates was inspiring. Her passion for family and community always proved that there was great love in this world. Lynn, thank you for all you have done for everyone, your passion for everyone was always demonstrated and appreciated by all. Your life was truly cut short but the lord had a plan for you and now we have to appreciate what you have done for all of us. Thank you for sharing and mentoring us through throughout our lives

Lynn was so proud to a nurse. She was my neighbor and fellow nurse coworker at Hillcrest hospital. I loved our talks while walking my dog and seeing her sweet dog Morgan. Lynn was so energetic and caring. I will miss her smile and bright spirit, so sorry for your loss.

We never had the privilege of meeting Lynn but I know behind every strong sailor, there is an even stronger woman who stands by him, supports him, and loves him with all her heart. I'm sure she was a proud Navy wife and Navy mother. Hooyah Lynn!
