Lynn touched my life through her teaching at CBS Lake Forest. She was an inspiration to me. I always looked forward to hearing her speak. She was a true gift from God. My deepest sympathies.

I was surprised and saddened to learn of Lynn's passing from this life but rejoice that she is in the presence of the One she faithfully loved and served, her Lord Jesus Christ. Lynn had a profound impact on my life as we served together at Camp of the Woods many years ago. It does not surprise me that she faithfully encouraged the spiritual growth of others, especially women, throughout the years. My sympathies and prayers for Byron and dear daughter, Tracey. May God grant you peace.(I can hear Lynn's laugh!) What a woman!

After growing up with three older brothers, Lynn came along, married my oldest brother and became my first sister. She was a loving and Godly example for me, still a teenager. I was privileged to be in her wedding and to have her in mine. Over the years our bond of friendship and sisterhood grew even though we've always lived miles apart. Lynn was gifted at whatever she set her mind to do. She was warm, funny and wise. Lynn was a good listener and gave advice from a Christ centered heart. I will forever treasure our time spent together and look forward to the day that I will see her again in Heaven! For Lynn ... sister of my heart, I love you!

Will be missed more than you can know. She had an awesome way of making each person feel special to her and to the Lord.
She taught with a passsion and love for the word that she expressed in every class she led.
How blessed you must feel to have had her in your life. Prayers and love are sent to you in this next journey of your lives until you meet again in heaven.
