Deepest sympathy to the whole family. Lynne was a kind and generous person, who I knew through choir at Lord of Life. May God touch and help you through this difficult time.

Lynne and I were classmates and lifelong friends. We grew up together in Brooklawn, New Jersey and were in the same class in elementary school, high school, and Sunday school. When I moved to the Midwest in 1965, Lynne and I continued keeping in touch via handwritten letters. She had the most beautiful handwriting and would keep me informed about her jobs, vacations, family, and the old home town. Lynne also made the trip to Chicago to attend my wedding in 1966. Lynne was always doing crafts while I was mostly reading books. I still have a cross-stitched Christmas card she made for me one year. I will miss Lynne, but I'm so glad I had her for a friend for so many years. My condolences to Tom and the family. Darlene Haggas Arendt

I am privileged to have known Lynne for 12 years, ten as her son-in-law. She was the first to welcome me and Ryan into the Larson family. There will always be a part of her (and not just her name) that will live on in my wife Cheryl, and my daughters. Her love of others is the legacy that will live on for generations. I can rejoice knowing she has a place in a bigger choir. Love you, Lynne. Thank you for loving me.

Lynne larson was my grandma. I have known her my whole life and loved her for as long as I lived. She was a great grandma that I'll miss. Taking me on lunch dates and icecream dates. I'll miss them the most. Her telling me everything will be okay and telling me to keep my head up. She always put a smile on my face and made me laugh. I will miss her laughing cause I said something funny, telling me I love you and hugging me. She always said everything will be just fine. Grandma I'll miss you forever and always and love you to the moon and back. RIP grandma...
