Lyn, hope you and Big Gene are enjoying each other’s company. He was waiting for you. And hey say hello to my big brother, Neal, for me.
You were a good friend when you were in Gallatin. Lots of fun Halloween parties, football parties and pool parties for the kids. We had a blast at Ray Charles concert. My kids and I were listening to music the other day and Meatloaf came on. We laughed at how you played it Loudly while driving them to school. Be at peace my friend. We will laugh again together soon. I love ya Sis, Michele

I’ve known Lyn and her family through church for many years. But about 3 years ago we found ourselves sitting beside each other at a doctor’s appointment. Both of us diagnosed with cancer. We stayed in touch through Facebook. Then she came to Sacred Ground Hospice House where I work. It was such an honor to welcome, care and be by her side as her earthly journey came to an end. She was so strong and never complained. As I walked with her out of SG, I told my friend goodbye for now. I know she is completely healed and with Jesus!

I worked with Lyn for many years at First Tennessee. She always had a smile and a kind word if you were having a bad day. She would often talk about her husband and kids. She loved them so much. Lyn and I bonded over our love of animals. Lyn you will be missed by your family and friends. RIP.

From the first time I meet her and her family she made me and my mom feel like we were family too over the years we grew closer and would say we were sister's from another mother. I have more wonderful memories than I could ever list one of my favorites was our trip to Mayberry when she was driving made a u turn and mom hollered from the back seat citizens arrest we laughed so hard .Our last trip together was a girls wkend to ethridge we ate laughed sat on the porch which was our favorite things to do. She was so amazing and I will miss her so much but I know she is with Jesus and free of all pain and I will see her again so her love and memories will stay with me until we reunite for eternity.

Lyn and I went to junior and senior high together. We also took part in several day hikes and activities with the Scout troops our brothers and parents were involved with. We were in band together, each of us playing clarinet. Our parents parked cars, served chili, and hauled boxes of oranges to customers for band fund-raising projects. We got back in touch and enjoyed discussing crafts and our love of dachshunds.
I love you Lyn. I’m proud of you, honored to be your friend. “There is always hope,” you told me. I will honor you always. Love you.

When I was growing up, I had the gift of knowing the Mowers family. I learned the true meaning of love and family. I took the values I learned into my family and adult life. It was a blessing to know Lyn. My fondest memory was leg wrestling in their living room floor, she was such a strong person, in every way. I will always think of the love she had for her family and keep her smile in my heart. She will be truly missed.I know she is walking the streets of gold.

Lyn Jones was my nana, and will forever have a big part of my heart. All the memories of baking in the kitchen, movie nights, even sitting in her office wile working. When we came over and we would get so upset when watching a movie and her work phone would ring. We constantly asked when work was over, how long, and if she could hurry up and play with us. At the end of the day, it was the best day at nana's house. She took me to a farm when my son passed away. It was so helpful and I will never forget it. Nana knew that the best healing takes place with the animals. I admire Nana so much, she was strong, loving, humorous, kind, generous, but more importantly, my Nana.
