Lynda Thorne Cline

August 28, 1970July 3, 2019

Lynda Thorne Cline, age 48, passed away Wednesday, July 3, 2019 in Twin Falls, Idaho due to complications related to diabetes. Lynda was a beautiful soul who loved all those around her unconditionally. She was a social butterfly who made sure everyone felt accepted and included. Her radiance drew people to her and everyone who knew her loved her. She will be greatly missed. Lynda was born on August 28, 1970 in Ogden, Utah to Lynn and Ruth Ann (Denny) Thorne. Lynda grew up in Syracuse, Utah and loved all those friends she had there. Lynda graduated from Clearfield High School in 1988 and served an LDS mission to Minneapolis, Minnesota. Lynda met the love of her life, Kelly ‘Stud-man’ Cline, on their first date where he proposed after 4 hours and she said yes. Because Lynda was so unique and special, the everyday terms of “honey” or “sweetie” simply would not do. Lynda was Kelly’s “Fresh Nectar Babe.” They were married in the Bountiful Temple on September 20, 1995. Lynda was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She loved her callings in nursery, primary and served as Relief Society president. Lynda loved children. Her biggest wish was to become a mother. During her high school years she raised her Heather, Lisa, Michelle and Ty-bud. After her and Kelly got married, they were foster parents to 13 children. Lynda finally gained the title of mother when she adopted Kira, Kody and Dakota. They were sealed as an eternal family in 2005. Lynda cherished her role as mother, but even more, her role as a Nana to Mason filled her heart with joy. Lynda spent the last four years of her life as a para-professional at Pillar Falls Elementary working with preschool age special needs children. Lynda, always one to make a statement, let her students choose her hair color; pink, purple, red and finally ending with blue. Lynda loved living in Twin Falls and loved all her friends and students dearly. Lynda spent countless hours sewing and made blankets for all her nieces and nephews. She loved to sing and shared that love anytime she could. She truly was a woman with many talents. Lynda is survived by her husband Kelly, her children Kira (Marco) Farnworth, Kody Cline, Dakota Cline (Bubba) and grandson Mason. Siblings Tammy (Travis) Heslop, Vicki (Brock) Hill, Scott (Shelly) Thorne, Ryan (Andra) Thorne, Kristie (Wayne) Taylor, Steven (Natalie) Thorne, father Lynn Thorne and bonus mom, Nancy, and 42 nieces and nephews.

Michael and I know how deep love runs in your family.
Your family has always been an amazing example to our family.

With belief in our hearts we pray that you will be given the strength, peace and the gentle comfort your hearts need today, tomorrow and the many days ahead.

I lived in Woodbury Minnesota about 20-25 yers ago. During that time, Sister Thorn was serving her mission in my area. I always loved to have the sister missionaries over for dinner, or to just hang out, when they had the time. I’ll never forget sister Thorn! She had a very strong testimony, and loved people, and people loved her! She had a great sense of humor, and was such fun to be around! She always wanted to help me and my family any way she could! I loved her dearly, and was very sad when the time came for her to be transferred to another area! Years later we hooked up on FB. I got to attend one of her children’s baptisms in Clearfield Utah. It was so wonderful to see her again, and meet her family! I can’t believe she’s left this world, but I know she’s in a wonderful place. Till we meet again Sister Turner (Cline) 🥰

Lynda was a joy to be around because she was so real, honest and kind. What I remember most about Lynda is that she cared deeply about helping others feel loved even while going through difficult times herself. She was compassionate and full of fun and life. I will miss her.
