OBITUARY

Lynn Susan Alimo

May 31, 1939September 8, 2020

Lynn Susan (Crasten) Alimo, 81 years of age born May 31, 1939. Lynn lived in Dennis, MA.

Lynn’s life will be celebrated at a Catholic mass on Friday, September 11, 11:00AM at Our Lady of the Cape Parish in Brewster, MA. (Guests are invited to view the service via live stream at: www.ourladyofthecape.org). Following the mass, Lynn will be brought to her final resting place at Oak Ridge Cemetery in South Dennis, MA. Funeral arrangements are supported by Doane, Beal & Ames Funeral Home, also in South Dennis, MA.

Lynn was born in Palisades Park, NJ. She grew up in Demarest, NJ with her parents, Arnold and Tessie Crasten and brother Charles, whom she lovingly referred to as ‘Charlsie’. After her marriage to John J. Alimo, Lynn lived in Rutherford, NJ, Paramus, NJ, Montvale, NJ, Upper Saddle River, NJ and Mahwah, NJ. Over the last 15 years Lynn and John split time between Florida and Cape Cod.

Lynn is survived by her husband of just over 60 years, John. The relationship between Lynn and John is one of the most beautiful and enduring love stories ever written. They were best friends, soul mates and will forever be connected for eternity. One of Lynn’s most important accomplishments was her family. She loved and cherished her daughter Janine Dethmers and sons John Alimo and Mark Alimo. She enjoyed special relationships with each of her children as well as their spouses, Doug Dethmers, Sheila Alimo and Lynn Alimo. And Lynn absolutely adored each of her grandchildren Heather, Dexter, Allison, Meaghan, John III, Duffy, Ryan and Grace; along with great grandchildren Cordelia, Rockwell and the forthcoming John IV.

Lynn loved her three special pets- Dookie, Penny and Meowie. She loved gardening, walking, animals, nature, laughing, and spending time with friends and family. She enjoyed the pool in Florida and the ocean at The Cape. She was one of the happiest people you will ever meet who always found boundless joy in the smallest things in life. Lynn was sweet, kind, humble, decent, and fun. She was youthful at heart, fun loving and full happiness. She often told people she never wanted to grow up and that she always loved to have fun. She loved building damns in creeks with her father Arnold and brother Charles in Schoharie, NY and collecting shells on the beaches of Florida and Cape Cod.

Prior to starting a family, Lynn launched a very successful career at Allied Chemical in NYC to as an executive administrator. She left Allied Chemical to work for Esso (that eventually became Exxon) where she moved up in the ranks reporting directly to the Treasurer of the corporation.

My Memories of Lynn, 9-11-2020, My dearest Friend Lynny, how I shall miss your beautiful smile and loving eyes. We have been friends for 81 years...since our Mothers walked us in our baby carriages together. From Kindergarten through our High School Graduation - your life and mine have been closely entwined. I set up your Blind date with your Dear and Loving John Alimo. And you arranged for my Darling Dennis to see and meet me in Assembly at your High School Tenafly High. We double dated and had so much fun as couples. I was your Bridesmaid and you were mine! Our babies played together and we were their Godparents. Wonderful summer vacations in Schoharie with your dear Grandparents. Wading in the creek (and skinny dipping :-) in the pond. Loved your Mom's roast pork and sauerkraut and our chocolate chip cookies, which we made together. Even remember sleepovers (and raiding Charlsie's "special" pin up magazines ;-). Going to the Drive-In with John and my Darling Den, those were the days! Here's to a lifetime of memories - your first home, your first baby - Janine, and your darling Johnny and Mark. We shared so much together. Thank you my Dear, Dear Friend for all my extra-special memories together. Rest in Peace...and we shall all be together soon. We grew up together and have enjoyed a wonderful life together with our dearest loving husbands. To Friendship and Love. Your Forever Friend, Andy xoxo

Did you ever see a smile that lit up a room? I did as Lynns' favorite sister in law, (her only one) married to her only brother who she lovingly referred to as "Charlsie". We have shared over 65 years of good times and some sad times but the good ones are the ones we will always remember. Lynn was so happy with John, the love of her life, and her family. I can't tell you how many stories we shared about them and ours over the years. As we got older and it became harder to travel long distances we spent more time on the phone. Those calls will also be missed.
She will be fondly remembered by all that knew and loved her. Rest in peace dear Lynn.

Alimo Family, So sorry for your loss. Lynn was always a good neighbor when I lived across the street on Raven Rd. in Montvale. There are many good memories from that time. Our children are all grown up now with children of their own. She will be remembered in my prayers, and may she rest in peace.

As a child, my Aunt Lynn always made sure we kids were happy and having fun. She always took time to seek each one of us out and asked us about our lives, what we liked, how we felt.
As an adult I came to admire her for her endless love for and with uncle Johnny. As a couple they radiated a light! She laughed freely and fully, and like her mother Tessie, she saw the “good in everyone and everything”. I feel blessed to be part of their club as my most cherished character trait is just that! She was cute and really funny, and her wisdom was timeless. She would say, “you know Donna...” and share really important stuff! Again, she always took the time to really listen, her bright blue eyes gazing at me intently and with interest. And there was always a great dog story to hear! A lover of animals, nature and people. She tried to make the world a better place; she was a loving force. Each and every time she corresponded by mail, she didn’t just send a card, she wrote and shared herself. I love you AL❤️Thank you.

I was so very sorry to learn of Lynn's passing. Always a smile on her face, Lynn was one of the most positive people I've ever known. She had nothing but kindness in her heart. While we have lost a friend, heaven has welcomed an angel. John, you and your entire family remain in my thoughts and prayers.
