Memorial Fund & Final Expenses

At 54 years old, we weren't planning to lose my mom so suddenly. Without life insurance, her final expenses are already piling up. 

Lynn was a long-time active member of The Salvation Army Albany church and participated in frequent weekly programs. She was also a charter member of TOPS Club Chapter 1144.

Reading and spending time with her grand daughters

All four of her granddaughters: McKayla, Alivia, Roselyn and Natalie. Taken spring 2014

Reading and playing with her grandchildren were Lynn ’s favorite pastimes. Her home was always open to anyone who needed help. I honestly cannot remember a time that mom turned anyone away who needed help.  

Three of her "grandchildren" 

Countless “children” called her mom and their children call her “Grandma Lynn.” She is already missed so much! 

Friends, we have set up this fund and are reaching out to you in hopes that you will help make this terrible loss a little less painful. Please contribute if you can and share this on your facebook page.

this one deserves a caption... apparently she asked for a huge glass of water. Maranda brought her a mixing bowl of ice water! I love that you can tell she is laughing here. That is how she lived. 

If you would like to donate locally, please contact myself via email or facebook and I can give you information for the bank account that has been set up in her honor.
