Doris Lynn, of Hardinsburg, Kentucky, went to be with the Lord, Tuesday, November 27th, 2018 under the care of Hospice Of The Comforter.

She is survived by her children: David and Judy, her stepchildren: John Douglas, David and Ava, her grandchildren: Lydia, Gloria, Sarah, Emily, Jason, Matt, Jennifer and Isaac, her great-granddaughter: Eloise and many loving members of her extended family. Doris was a loving mother, grandmother and friend to all.

She was born in Hardinsburg, Kentucky, to Thayer Irl and Judith Glasscock (née Watlington). She had one brother: Thayer Irl II. Her family attended First United Methodist Church of Hardinsburg. Doris graduated Salutatorian of her high school class, at Breckinridge County High. She went on to receive a B.A. in Music Education from Western Kentucky University and married Wallas Newton Bell. She dedicated her early life to education, voice and piano instruction and raising her two children, while serving as the Choir Director at First Christian Church of Sturgis, Kentucky for over 20 years. In 1978 she participated in a mission trip to the Far East with Lay Witness Missions.

After her first marriage ended, Doris moved to Florida with her second husband, John Lynn, in 1979. She served as Administrative Assistant at Rollins College, in the Philosophy and Religion Department from 1980-2002. She was also a member of the Bach Festival Society of Winter Park for over 20 years, traveling with them to England in 1990. She became a member of Community United Methodist Church in the early 2000's. Throughout her time in Florida, she participated in music ministries at various churches.

Doris treasured and nurtured her family and friends. She left a strong musical legacy to her grandchildren. She enjoyed gardening, cooking and eating delicious food. Her warmth and giving nature continued despite her diagnosis of Parkinson's disease, a progressive nervous system disorder, in 1997. For over 20 years of her life, she lived courageously with this disease through a variety of levels of care.

It is with sadness but also gratitude and hope for the future that her family celebrates the life of their beloved songbird, teacher and encourager.
