Obituary of Lynn Marie Bergfeld
After a full life and courageous battle, Lynn Bergfeld passed away peacefully on August 2, 2022. Even though we and her close friends knew the conditions given to her disease, we continued to believe in her courage and strength to overcome. To say the suddenness of her passing was devastating would be minimizing the emptiness her absence leaves in our hearts. Lynn was born in Lynwood, California and it wasn’t long before her love for horses consumed her. That love continued to grow, expanding into the show ring and what started as a simple hobby became her passion. Her horses were important, winning no matter what discipline she rode was her goal, but paramount were the relationships she developed with the people. Most of the time she could remember your name. But, if she couldn’t remember your name, she always remembered the name of the horse you rode and probably its ancestry. She spoke more with her eyes than she did with words. Not surprisingly, her most commonly spoken words were “walk”, “here”, and “whoa” because she talked more to her horses than people. It should be no surprise that Lynn met Bill because of her horses. In the late 70’s, he was the local equine practitioner and of course there came a time when her horses needed Veterinary care. As often happens, life forces us to change. Lynn moved away from Conroe and what was destined to be the perfect relationship was put on hold for twenty years, until 1996. Lynn saw Bill on the side of the road with a broke down truck and she offered him a ride. The rest is history. God works mysteriously because it wasn’t the horses that created this team, it was a broken-down truck. But to create the unbreakable bond that solidified the team, God used horses. Lynn’s family was a vital part of her life. Her mother, Ida Mae Simpson was her greatest cheer leader. Her brother Tom Simpson could fix Lynn’s truck when all she could tell him was “it makes a clanking sound”. Tom’s wife Missy became Lynn’s sounding board for aches and pains characteristic of aging. Jim Simpson, Lynn’s other brother, became the liaison between Lynn, Bill, and Ida Mae because he has that unique ability to make man made mountainous problems shrink back down to mole hill size. Jim’s partner, Don, could always be relied upon to provide optimistic insight into daily challenges. Her extended family consists of her niece Jordan, her husband Tommy, and their children, her nephew Jared, and his fiancé Taylor. Lynn always considered Bill’s boys her own. She referred to them as, “my son” Billy, “my son” Bo, “my son” Boone, and “my son” Branson. No doubt Lynn was loved and will be missed by the many friends she made during her 65 years. During the last 5 years, Lynn made it a point to live by her version of Exodus 14:14– The Lord will fight my battles, all I need to do is be still and trust in him. She asked Bill to live by her version of Isaiah 61:3 – When your spirit is heavy and you want to give up, put on the garment of praise. Her final advice for all her family and friends and what she would want everyone to remember her by can be found on her truck license plate: “NE4GVUP” Never Give Up Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at www.forestparkthewoodlands.com for the Bergfeld family.
