"I miss seeing Lynn around our building and running errands for her. She loved to decorate the door to her apartment and brightened the hallway. She loved her lottery tickets. I enjoyed knowing her. Rest in Peace my friend. I'm sorry I cant be there for your visitation and funeral. from Louie LaMore"
"I worked with Lynn at WPS. We became very good friends. The only thing I regret is not keeping in touch after I left WPS. We always said we would get together but we were never able to connect. RIP dear friend."
"I am so saddened by this news. Once we no longer worked together, Lynn and I would try to get together for our birthdays. She was such a kind and generous person. She will be greatly missed. Wendy Hougan"

"Lynn has been a true friend since we met as freshmen in high school, keeping in touch through all that life brought on. We always made a point of getting together if she came to the Wausau area or if we went to Madison area. She treated my boys as well as she did her own nephews. Mentings are considered family!"
