My favorite memory of Lynn was when I contacted her to help me carry out a surprise for her dear daughter, Rebecca. Rebecca is my BFF and back in 2001(?) she was moving from CA to IL and Lynn was in IL to help Rebecca with the transition. What I had not told Rebecca, despite talking to her all the time, was that I would soon be moving just two hours away! Lynn was at Rebecca's new apartment helping her get settled and when I came into town to go house hunting, I drove the two hours over to Chicago. Lynn was there at the apartment to let me in and then right before Rebecca was due home from work I went and hid in her bedroom. When she arrived home Lynn said "Go on back in your room and change clothes so we can go to dinner." And when she did... there I was! When Rebecca figured out what the deal was we were jumping around like two teenagers. And Lynn... was simply laughing at us! <3

So very sorry for your loss. It is such a hard thing to deal with. I have such great memories of growing up with the Stines, mostly involving swimming at the pool or tennis, or school lunch at our round table. Lynn often took a load of us to tournaments. I only now appreciate how brave that was. She laughed about Rebecca and me chasing all over the Memphis Tennis Center to get a picture with Jimmy Conners, which I still have. Thanks so much for adding great memories to my childhood! Praying you will be buoyed up by the love of Jesus and great memories of Lynn.

Deepest sympathy to you and your family. Lynn was a lovely lady and a great encouragement to me. She seemed to know when something was bothering me and always had a kind, encouraging word .

Privileged to have met Lynn & Tommy several years ago while participating in local running events. Lynn was a loyal volunteer at The Butterfly Foundation 5K in our hometown and a faithful supporter of several other run events. So saddened to hear of her passing. Tommy and the family will be in our prayers.
