Served with her on bowling board for 26 years Hutchinson , Kansas

Was so honored to be able to serve on the board with Lynn. She was an AWESOME woman. I loved it when she wrote poems to suit any kind of situation at our meetings. So glad to have known her. To know her was to love her. Wish I could make the service. Her family is in my thoughts & prayers.
