Lynn Odess Wilmoth 1949-2020
Lynn passed away on September 7, 2020. She was born in Birmingham where she grew up and graduated from Shades Valley High. Lynn attended Sweet Briar College and settled in Atlanta where she worked for many years in the securities business before returning back home to Birmingham in the early 90’s. Lynn loved dogs and was very active in several organizations that find adoptive homes for retired greyhounds, adopting many herself over the years.
Lynn was preceded in death by her brother, Johnny Odess; mother, Myra Odess; and father John Odess.
Lynn is survived by her son, Christopher Wilmoth (Marion), granddaughter Lily Wilmoth, her brothers Mitch Odess (Kym) and Ricky Odess (Debbie), her nephew Patrick Odess (Molly), and her great nephew Winston Odess.
Lynn was a member of Temple Emanu-el in Birmingham. She is survived by too many wonderful friends to mention. She was one of a kind and will be greatly missed by all of her friends and family. A celebration of Lynn’s life will be held at a time and place to be determined.
