So sorry to hear of Lynn's passing. I have not kept in touch with
Lynn in recent years, however there were good times when we
were at Uncle Glen's and Aunt Isabel Banks, Lynn's grandparents.
Many delicious dinners and a lot of fun throwing horse shoes, riding horses. Lynn and Glen (Shorty) Banks were members of
several riding clubs. Good memories of the farm south east of
Ames. Lynn was also employed by Kmart in West Ames for many
years. Her parents were some of the nicest people you would
want to know. I know she missed them tremendously.
