Mary Lynn loved the Lord, life, her husband, family and friends. She was a lifelong member of the Mt. View United Methodist Church and truly loved her church family. Before her illness she was always very active in the church.

In her younger years she attended Dublin High School where she enjoyed being a cheerleader, attending ball games, sock hops and spending time with friends. She was always cheerful and had a beautiful smile.

She married Ernest on July 18, 1959. She was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. She was always supportive and helpful in whatever they had a love and passion for.

The family would like to thank all of her care givers during her long illness. Her husband, who went above and beyond to make sure she had the best care and everything she needed. Sarah Bishop, Kelly Sweeney and Kayla Hall at Carilion Hospice Care for their care, love and compassion. To her nieces, Beck Dean and Donna Akers for always bringing her favorite foods and goodies and staying with her when we had to be gone. She considered you her daughters and loved you dearly.
