Dear Ones,

Jack and I offer our deep sympathy to you all at this sad time. Lynn was my
mother's Goddaughter and I remember Lynn as always being poised, confident, intelligent
and patient. She loved her mother, her husband, her siblings, children, grandchildren and friends
with the love of Christ. We know exactly where she is right now but that fact doesn't
take away the pain of losing her here on Earth. Our prayers are with Lynn's large, loving
family that God's Peace, "which passeth all understanding," will penetrate their souls
with the assurance of a joyful reunion one day in Heaven.

With love, Jack and Marjorie (Sembert) Flintom

Lynn will surely be missed by me and my family. I have so many fond childhood memories of being welcomed into the home she made. I am grateful to have formed friendships with the Mellotts. A big reason for that was Lynn. She made me feel loved and part of the group when visiting. My memories of her taking time to make me some of her amazing homemade treats on special occasions and always having a hug and a smile whenever I saw her will always be with me. Thank you so much for the love Lynn!

To the family of Mrs. Mellott, especially Rachel~ so sorry to hear this news. Lynn was a person who so loved little people. I will forever have such wonderful memories her being my oldest child preschool teacher. Leaving my oldest for the first time with a teacher- Lynn was a blessing.
